Ascension is a congregation of Christians affiliated with the WELS (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod).
As a family of believers in our Savior Jesus Christ, we proclaim the Gospel in Word and sacrament, to gather souls, nurture believers, and encourage Christian living within our community and throughout the world.
What do you believe?
The short answer is that we believe what the Bible teaches. Only by believing in Jesus as Savior is a person saved. Only by God's grace (undeserved love) is this salvation available. Only in the Bible do we discover God's plan for our salvation.
A more detailed summary of our beliefs, along with the specific references from the Bible that support them, can be found here.
Am I expected to give an offering?
We do collect an offering as a part of our worship. However, this is a way for our members to express their love for God by returning to him some of the monetary gifts He has give them. We do no expect visitors to put anything in the offering plate, so we encourage you to simply pass the plate to the next person when it comes to you, if you so desire.
Is there a dress code?
We have no dress code. You are welcome at Ascension whether you are dressed formally or in jeans and t-shirt.
What should we do if little children will be with us?
Jesus said "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
All of God's children are encouraged to attend at Ascension! Typically, children sit with their parents during worship. However, if your child needs a "time out" for a little while, we have a closed-circuit television feed in the back room so that you can still participate during that time.
