Bible Study Schedule
Our Sunday Morning Bible Study Hour for adults, and Sunday School for children ages 4 yrs. old thru 6th Grade, will resume their regular program for the new Fall semester, on Sunday, September 12!
Our regular Fall Schedule includes our regular Sunday Morning Worship Service, at 8:30 AM; followed by the Sunday Morning Bible Study Hour and Sunday School, both of which begin at 9:40 AM, right after our Sunday Worship Service, every Sunday morning during the school year. We warmly invite you to come and join us!
Our Sunday Morning Bible Study Hour this year is taking a focused, closer look at Ephesians 6:10-20, where the apostle Paul calls on every believer in Christ to put on "the full armor of God."
Discussion will be based on the book "Equipped: The Armor of Go for Everyday Struggles," by Christopher M. Kennedy (CPH). Come and join us for this inspiring, uplifting, and encouraging study!
Our Wednesday Evening Bible Study Hour is hoping to continue our look at "the fourth Gospel"-- the Gospel of the John. We have been "on break" for the past few months due to Covid concerns.
Vacation Bible School
We are so thankful that our Summer of 2021 Vacation Bible School was able to be held on Tuesday, July 20 thru Thursday, July 22, at 10:00 to 11:45 am; was open to all children, ages 5 years old thru 8th Grade; and was offered free of charge for all!
The theme of our VBS this year was "Soaring HIGH!", a high-flying adventure of discovery and treasure hunting, as we made our way through various amazing stories from the Bible. We encountered God's great power in helping others; reason for real joy, even in times of trouble; and the all-surpassing promise of our gracious God and Savior in His Son, Jesus Christ!
For more information on our VBS program, or for answers to any questions you may have, please call the church office at (605) 996-9123; or email Pastor David at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks! Come, fly and "Soar HIGH!" with us in VBS!
Our Vacation Bible School is offered for the benefit of all children, ages 4 years old through the 6th grade. We especially 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 the church office for more information (605-996-9123) about next year's sessions!

Although the COVID-19 pandemic is still around, we are pretty much "back-to-normal", holding our regular Sunday morning "indoors-and-in-church" Sunday Worship Services!
We do still have a "Parking Lot Worship" option, for those who are concerned about the virus. You may park your car anywhere on our parking lot or driveway and listen to our Sunday Worship Service as it is going on inside, while staying safe out in your car, every Sunday morning at the regular Worship 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 on your own car radio! Either way, we stay "safely-distanced", to minimize possible infection. Come, join us! It's a wonderful and renewing experience!
If you have any questions or concerns, you can get in touch with Pastor Reichel by calling the church office: 996-9123; or emailing him at email@example.com.
As always, our prayer is that the Lord continue to bless and keep you and your family safe and healthy through this trying time.
And always remember your Savior's words: "And surely I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:20b).
