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! 

Blessings!

Pastor Phil

Ministry Opportunities

Vital Ministry Needs Your Time and Talent

Fellowship Team: We are in 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. You can contact Ken Currie or the church office for more information or to offer your time and talent.

 

Sock Sunday

Each year, community volunteers take a census of all the homeless people in Brevard County to help gain grant funding to assist with the end of homelessness. As volunteers meet people, they give goody bags and resource information. During the month of January we will be collecting new socks and white T-shirts.

Lutheran World Relief Personal Care Kits

The women will be collecting items for Lutheran World Relief Personal Care Kits thru the months of January. Light-weight bath towels, single adult-size tooth brushes, and metal nail clippers. Please give new items only.

When LWR distributes Personal Care Kits, it's often to people who have lost everything. In the wake of an earthquake, or having fled from violence as their homes were overtaken, they clasp a towel from a faraway place, with a bar of soap, a toothbrush...and washing up, they know that they have not be3en forsaken by the world.

The very simple gesture of giving a Personal Care Kit can give someone the encouragement to start anew, starting with a bath. You can share God's grace and love by providing that simple comfort.
