The Daily Office

We pray that the Lord would “Give us this day our daily bread.” Throughout the week at Ascension, He answers that prayer. While Sunday morning Divine Service is the main entrée of your week, He ever provides the manna of His Word to tide you over. And what better way to receive this food for your soul than to gather with your church family. Private Confession is available 30 minutes prior to each Daily Office.

Days & Times:
Evening Prayer: Wednesdays at 6:00 P.M.
Vespers: Thursdays at 3:00 P.M.
Matins: Fridays at 9:00 A.M.

Location: Church sanctuary

Adult Bible Study: Paul’s Epistle to the Romans

Law and Gospel. Judgment and grace. Freedom and bondage. These are just a few of the powerful themes St. Paul mentions in his letter to the Christians at Rome. Masterfully, he uses such images to paint a vivid portrait of salvation in Christ Jesus. Come, uncover the beautiful picture of what life now looks like on account of your Savior.

Day & Time: Sundays at 9:00 A.M.
Location: Church fellowship hall

Book Club: The Monster Within

Men's Book Study: The Calling: Live a Life of Significance

How do I pay the bills? How do I find a job that motivates and inspires. What should I major in at college? Why is my family life in such shambles? How do I live a life of meaning and significance? Am I really living the life God has created uniquely for me?
Unlike Noah or Paul, most of us won’t receive answers to these questions directly from God. This doesn’t mean, however, that God does not guide us to those choices that will give our life significance.

The Holy Spirit enables us to live the life God created uniquely for us. As we use the resources God places at our disposal, rely on His forgiveness when we stumble, and walk hand in hand with God, He will show us what it means to live a life of significance.
The basis of this study is Kurt Senske’s The Calling: Living a Life of Significance. Copies are available for just $20. Please contact Pastor Miller to obtain yours.

Day & Time: To be determined
Location: Church overflow room
