Worship and Music
CELEBRATE God’s love in worship. We invite you to experience worship in a friendly environment that is positive, practical and filled with messages of hope and encouragement. As Lutherans, our worship is “liturgical." It actively involves people in singing, praying and worship leadership. Communion is served at each service, and all baptized guests are welcome to partake. Children are invited to participate in our “children’s sermon” during our 10:45 AM Sunday worship. Worship is not simply a concert and sermon, but offers a distinct flow resembling the story of Christ’s life.
SEEK Christ through study and prayer. Lutherans are highly committed to education, and Ascension Lutheran encourages OPEN MINDS through prayer and discipleship learning, including: Sunday school, at 9:30 AM Sundays during the school year, with classes for all ages beginning with 4-year-olds. Junior high youth are involved in a two-year study program called catechism (Latin for “teaching”) that includes several retreats and trips each year. Senior high youth have Sunday morning discussion, attend spiritual retreats and concerts in Louisville and travel beyond Louisville several times a year. Adult Sunday school also is available.
SERVE others. Faith is just talk unless it is expressed in loving action. Members of Ascension are invited to serve the world in ministries such as Habitat for Humanity, a clothing and food bank, and working with workers of the backside at Churchill Downs. Jesus’ ministry was to show people the Kingdom of God on earth. We seek the same goal.
SHARE love. Ascension seeks to be the “third place” in people’s lives. Their first place (the home) is for family; their second place (office/school) is for work. Ascension is the place to meet friends and enjoy a community life. Each year we offer events to bring people together, including themed worship services, Vacation Bible School, an ice cream social, church picnic, game nights, group outings, chili cook-off, movie series with study, supper groups, and a Thanksgiving meal the Sunday before that holiday.
