Fall Bible Study Schedule:

We are gearing up for the Fall Schedule once again here at Ascension... We will be starting our 2018 Sunday Morning Bible Hour for the adults and our Sunday School for all children ages 4 yrs. old thru 6th Grade on Sunday, September 9, 2018. Both of these sessions begin at 9:40 AM, right after our Sunday Worship Service, every Sunday morning. We warmly invite you to come and join us!


     Our Sunday Morning Bible Study Hour is taking a careful look at the various facets of what has been called ‘the brightest jewel in the Christian Church’– the foundation of true saving faith– God’s gracious pronouncement of pardon in the court of divine justice for the sake of Jesus Christ the Savior!  What do you know about it?  Can you define and explain it?  Why is it so important– to you and to everyone else in the world?!  Come to our Sunday Morning Bible Study Hour to find out!

     Our Wednesday Evening Bible Study Hour is working its way through one of the most important documents in the Lutheran church:  the Augsburg Confession.  Have you read it?  Do you know why it was such a defining document in  Luther’s time, and why it is just as important to us today?  What’s it all about?  Join us to journey with us through this V.I.D. (very important document)!



Vacation Bible School 2018

Our Vacation Bible School here at Ascension Lutheran Church was held Tuesday through Thursday, July 24-26, from 6:30 to 8 pm. We had a great time as we took a "journey to the stars" aboard "Space Station Salvation"! We had all kinds of fun and exciting things going on at this year's Vacation Bible School, including two personal visits by "Astronaut Bob", all the way from outer space! The kids were thrilled to meet, see, and hear him as he shared some of the exciting experiences of space travel, as well as a special message from God's Word! They were even able to have their pictures taken in a space suit, just like a real astronaut!

Our Vacation Bible School is offered for the benefit of all children, ages 4 years old through the 6th grade. We especially invite anyone from the community to come and join us during this special week of summer at Ascension. Bible stories, songs, games, crafts, and activities liven up our VBS as we focus on the message of the Gospel of Jesus our Savior during this special summer session. Call our church office for more information (605-996-9123).

Luther Movie Showing:
You may have seen it on our home page-- Ascension Ev. Lutheran Church sponsored the exclusive showing of "A Return to Grace: Luther's Life and Legacy," a new movie which takes a closer look at the life, times, and accomplishments of Martin Luther.  The following is an excerpt from a description of the movie:

This Reformation 500 year is providing extraordinary opportunities to share the gospel truths and our Lutheran heritage with the world. One of the most exciting opportunities is the new film A Return to Grace: Luther's Life and Legacy. This full-length movie details Luther's life and his dedication to the truths of God's Word.

A Return to Grace paints a vivid picture of Luther's role in the Reformation and the events that unfolded. Much of the film was shot in eastern European castles, monaster-ies, and villages to capture the scenery of the 16th century. All of Luther's dialogue in the movie is taken directly from his writings and sermons. Scholars worked on set to achieve a high level of historical accuracy for the film.

At the heart of it all is God and his love. Chairman of the Reformation 500 Committee and author of Luther's Protest John Braun says about A Return to Grace, "It explores the truths of the Reformation: Christ at the center of our faith, the importance of God's undeserved grace, and the value of Scripture as authority for all teaching in the Christian church."

Learn more about A Return to Grace and how you can see it today by visiting wels.net/reformation500.


We were privileged to present this exclusive showing on Wednesday, October 18, 2017, at the Logan Luxury 5 theater in Mitchell.  And it was a big hit and great success!  We had a huge, "sell-out" crowd, with people from all over the area coming in to join us!  Thank you to all for coming, and for viewing this special movie presentation with us!
