GOOD NEWS!:  Although the COVID-19 pandemic is still hanging around, we have resumed our "in-church" Sunday Worship Services!

We are still having "Parking Lot Worship" as well,  for those who are concerned or need to stay extra cautious in regard to the virus.  You are welcome to park anywhere on our parking lot or driveway and listen to the Worship Service going on indoors, while still staying safe out in your car.  Our Worship Services are conducted every Sunday morning at the regular time of  8:30 am.

Everyone is welcome to join us, either inside our specially-cleaned-and-sanitized building, or on our church parking lot by tuning in to our Worship Service on your car radio.  Either way, we are staying "safely-distanced", to minimize the possibility of infection.  Come, check it out!  It's a wonderful and renewing experience!!

As always, if you need to get in touch with Pastor Reichel, or have any questions, please call the church office:  996-9123  or  you may email him at  ascension@santel.net.

You may access Pastor's recent letters regarding our plans and response to the virus here:

Pastor Reichel's Letter on 10-09-2020

More updates and information can be found on  this page in the coming weeks, as circumstances change and the need arises.  Check back often!


As always, our prayer is that the Lord continue to bless and keep you and your family safe and healthy through this trying time.

Always remember your Savior's words:  ""And surely I am with you always, even to the end of the age."" (Matthew 28:20b).

Fall / Winter Bible Study Schedule:

We resumed our Fall Schedule at Ascension on Sunday, September 13, 2020, right after the Labor Day weekend.  We have our  Sunday Morning Bible Study Hour  for adults and   Sunday School  for children ages 4 yrs. old thru 6th Grade.  Both of these events start at 9:40 AM, right after our Sunday Worship Service, every Sunday morning. We warmly invite you to come and join us!

bible-study-clipart    Our Sunday Morning Bible   Study Hour is taking a look at one of the most misunderstood, misused, and misapplied teachings of the Bible, and yet also one of the most comfort-ing truths of Scripture:  it's called "predestination" (also known as "election").  What is it?  What are some of the misunderstandings and errors about it?  Why is it such an important truth for each of us?  Find out the Bible's answers to these questions, and bring your own personal questions to our Morning Bible Study Hour discussion-and-discovery time!

Our Wednesday Evening Bible Study Hour is hoping to continue our look at "the fourth Gospel"-- the Gospel of the John.  Written after the first three Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke), the apostle John records a number of personal insights into the life and works of Jesus of Nazareth, to clearly show that He "is the Christ, the Son of God, so that by believing you may have life in His name." (John 20:31).  So many unique, special, intimate and personal details in the Gospel of John lead us to love and live for our precious Savior Jesus!   At this time, we remain "on hold" with this Bible study hour, due to COVID-19 restrictions.  We hope to be able to resume again soon our journey with Jesus, the Son of God, who came to be our Savior.  Check back here in early September, to see what the schedule will be.

Vacation Bible School 2020

Vacation Bible School 2020  was held during the week of July 5, on Tuesday thru Thursday, July 7, 8, and 9, from 10:00 am to 11:30 am each day.  We had all kinds of fun, as we were down by the sea, with Dive In!.  We got to learn about some of the amazing and wonderful sea creatures God created, and how they testify to His power and wisdom as Creator of all.  Most importantly, we saw how certain creatures can serve as examples of our need for the only Savior from sin, Jesus Christ!  We all had a great time, and benefitted greatly from V.B.S.!

Our Vacation Bible School is offered for the benefit of all children, ages 4 years old through the 6th grade.  We esp-ecially invite all children from the area 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) about next year's sessions!
