Ascension is biblically based, celebrating traditional and contemporary worship. For the summer, we offer 2 different service times: 8:30am is a traditional service, 10:00am is contemporary.
Our congregation accepts all of the Old and New Testaments as the uniquely inspired Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of its proclamation, faith, and life.
Lutheran Church of the Ascension is a member of the Sierra Pacific Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, who believe, teach and preach that God is one God, and is the Triune Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This congregation accepts and professes the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds.
We believe that no human being exists by accident but has been uniquely brought into existence by divine intent and for a divine purpose, that God has a plan for each individual's life. However, we also believe that all human beings are sinners and in need of God's gracious forgiveness, that God loves all people, no matter who they are or what a person may have done, and desires that all persons are saved. We believe that God offers everyone salvation as a gift of grace through the life, death, and resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ.This congregation offers the Lord's Supper (Holy Communion) at all Sunday worship services and at special weekday evening services. For, we believe, the church is the assembly of believers called and gathered by God around Word and Sacrament, and that the mission and ministry of Christ's church is carried out within the context of individual congregations, which work together locally and globally.The people of Lutheran Church of the Ascension invite you to worship with us. It is our deep passion to share Christ and the message of what God has done for all people through Jesus Christ with all people, everywhere.
