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 involves people actively in the 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 later Sunday worship. Worship is not simply a concert and sermon, but offers a distinct flow resembling the story of Christ’s life itself.
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, held at 9:30 a.m. each Sunday, 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. Adult Sunday School is usually taught by Pastor Hegele Senior High youth have Sunday morning discussion sessions and attend spiritual retreats and concerts in Louisville and beyond several times a year.
SERVE others. Faith is just talk unless it is expressed in loving action. Members of Ascension are invited to serve society in such ministries as Habitat for Humanity, a clothing and food bank, sponsoring refugees, and working with migrants workers at Churchill Downs racetrack. 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 ice cream socials, a church picnic, game nights, a chili cook-off, movie series with study, and a Thanksgiving meal the Sunday before that holiday.
