Church Home

Interested in becoming a member of Ascension Lutheran Church or having your children attend Ascension School? 

Whenever you have any questions about the church or school, what we believe, or if you have a special need, please contact the church office at 260 486-2226. Ask to talk with the pastor or the school principal. 

Pastor Gier conducts instructional classes regularly, as preparation for those who want to join Ascension or have children in Ascension Lutheran School. The pastor's class is a requirement for both.

Reading with Your Children 

Every first Sunday of the month, we are promoting family books for parents and grandparents to consider using or purchasing for their children or grandchildren. 

Studies have proven that one of the best things that parents can do is read to and with their children. Not only are your sharing quality time together but you also are helping to educate your children in the home with good books, preparing them for a lifetime of learning. Subsequently , children will develop a love for learning and will also do better in school.

From a spiritual perspective, we have promoted the three most important books to help nurture their faith: the Bible, the Small Catechism, and the Hymnal. Regular use of these foundational books will go far in creating and sustaining a vibrant faith in our children’s lives - ours, as well. 

The books that were promoted have been written with the young ones in mind - usually beginning at the kindergarten level. Of course, parents can adapt these resources to fit the needs of each child. The blessed goal in teaching these valuable truths is to help each child know their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His great love for them. They will learn to develop the habit of daily study and devotion that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

Parents are key here, and need the encouragement and resources to model the faith for their own children. Please check out the Family Life section in our library for the many good resources available to you and your children. God bless and strengthen you as you do!
