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 (mine in real-time now) 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! 

Blessings!

Pastor Phil

The 4th Wednesday at 11 AM Fellowship

If you haven't already marked your 2017 calendars for this monthly event, please do so now!

The gathering begins at 11 a.m., and food service will be 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. (or until everyone's  happily fed!).  Bring your friends and neighbors--all are welcome!  The only request is that you please either RSVP on the church bulletin insert each month, or call the church office at 773-1815 by the Monday prior to each event, so we will know how much food to prepare.  Please come enjoy a time of food and fellowship!

Special Presentation February 22nd: Cybersecurity and Identity Safeguards

Wednesday, February 22nd, is coming and with it, a bit of a change of meal plan as well as an interesting presentation. We may still have some King Cake for dessert - but, we're going to switch to an Italian meal because we're having a special speaker that day, in conjunction with the luncheon. Last month we were delighted to welcome two of the Indian Harbour Beach Police force who joined us. Not are they going to continue to come, so you have an opportunity to chat with them, but this month we're also going to have a presentation on cybersecurity and identity safeguards by Mary McLaughlin, who is an FDLE Cybersecurity Analyst. She will be talking about both of these subjects, answering questions! This should be interesting for all; unfortunate as it is, it is definitely a topic that affects every one of us. Please mark your bulletin or call the church office by Monday, February 20th for the February 22nd event - see you there!

 

Shrove Tuesday is February 28th

We're having a 'pancake day,' and not just 1 meal! In order to have as many congregation members and community join in the fun as possible, we'll have lunch from 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m., and then dinner from 5 – 8 p.m.

Menu – will be simple and traditional – pancakes (lots of them!), various types of syrup (the real stuff), bacon, sausage (maybe sliced ham), fresh fruit, and possibly a few other appetizers, as well.

There will also be coffee, hot and iced tea, orange juice, and perhaps another kind of juice. If it’s one of those late chilly days, maybe we'll have some hot chocolate, too.

There will be a presentation during both the lunch and evening dining times. Please mark you calendars and join us for this tasty event.

What is Shrove Tuesday?
