Latest Message: Love This Land

Pastor Ben Berger - 7/3/2022

“Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you... Pray to the LORD for it.” These were God's words to his people Judah many years ago as they found themselves living in a foreign land. Though they were surrounded by a people who did not believe in the true God, Judah was not to see them as an enemy to overcome, but a people to love.

God's word speaks to us today too, in our country, in our communities: Love this land. Love it not with a child’s patriotism that whitewashes the wrong and ignores the evil. Love it not with the misguided ideal of creating utopia – that’s an impossibility in a world of sin. Rather, love it truly with the faithful, persistent love of Christ given us.


Who's Ascension?

Who's Ascension?

Ascension is a small but growing church. We come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and backgrounds. We love and support one another as a family. And we're just like you: sinners in need of a Savior.

We come together every week to praise God for his gift of Jesus, to encourage each other, and to serve.

We'd love for you to be our guest at our next event or Sunday morning gathering!


Our Worship

Our Worship

Why do we worship? There are many reasons why Christians gather together in worship, but the most important is simply this: At worship, God serves us.

That might sound upside down, but it's the wonderful truth. In his Word, God comes to us with peace, forgiveness, and true life through Jesus Christ.

We'd love for you to be our guest Sunday morning. You can join in person at 10:30 am or try out our service online first right here.
