Ascension Lutheran Church

Worship Times

Sunday Schedule

Sunday School 9:00 a.m.

Worship 10:00 a.m.  

 

Our worship service is based on the ancient liturgy of the church set to music that is modern but dignified, lending itself to joyful celebration but also promoting a sense of mystery and spiritual reflection.

 

Ash Wednesday (Feb. 10) and Wednesdays of Lent (Feb. 17, 24, Mar. 2, 9, 16)

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent with prayer, scripture, and the imposition of ashes (a sooty cross marked on one's forehead).

Following Wednesdays of Lent continue with the liturgy for Evening Prayer and a brief study led by the pastor, this year focused on Luther's Small Catechism.

 

Holy Week and Easter 2016

Thursday - March 24:  Maundy Thursday  
Service at 6:30 p.m.

The word Maundy comes from the Latin mandatum, which means "commandment." At the Last Supper, Jesus gave the disciples a new commandment to love one another as he had loved them (John 13:34).

Friday - March 25: Good Friday
Service at 6:30 p.m.

A quiet service of contemplation when the church becomes progressively darker as we remember Jesus' sacrifice on the cross.

Easter Sunday - March 27: Celebration of Christ's Resurrection
Worship Service 10 a.m.

The full joyful celebration of the greatest day on the Church's calendar. We gather because Christ was resurrected.  Because He lives, we will live also. Hallelujah!
