Welcome to Ascension Lutheran Church

Welcome to Ascension’s website! We’re glad you found us! We hope you’ll return again and again!

We have updated our homepage with new pictures of our ministries and events. It’s always a challenge to keep our Website updated, because our congregation continues to evolve. We have many, many active organizations, and I suspect that there's something here for everybody, whether you have a special interest in worship, music, children’s education, youth, adult education, ministry opportunities and outreach, or fellowship activities. We have prepared a lot of great information right here on this website, and I want to personally invite you to look around, get to know us, and explore the pages we have prepared for you. Here are the resources, the links, and the conversations you need to feel welcome and, we hope, appreciated and understood. 

You may also contact our office directly at (321) 773-1815.  If our staff or volunteer leaders can assist you in any way, don’t hesitate to reach out.   Once again, thank you for your interest in Ascension Lutheran Church - we look forward to worshipping with you soon!

Two Vital Ministries Needs Your Time and Talent

Co-Chair for Outreach Team: We are looking for someone to co-chair our Outreach Team with Jeanette Bradley. We are thrilled that Jeanette has stepped forward to help lead our Outreach programs, but she's not able to take on all the responsibilities alone. This ministry plans a variety of community outreach events throughout the year including the Blessing of the Animals, a Community Picnic, and Trunk or Treat, to name a few. They also schedule and coordinate greeters who serve on Sunday mornings before the service to welcome visitors and members alike. Outreach also plans New Member Breakfasts for for new and prospective members to learn more about our church, its ministries, and its people. 

Fellowship Team: We are also in the need of someone to chair our Fellowship Team. This team organizes fellowship functions, coffee hours, church suppers, and hospitality events. If this is an area where you have been gifted, please consider stepping forward to give of your time and talents to this important ministry area.

Please give prayerful consideration to helping out Ascension and the community in one of these vital mission areas. You can contact Jeanette, Ken Currie or the church office for more information or to offer your time and talent.
