Beyond Ascension Outside Ascension
Ascension is not an island! We work with many other churches and organizations and we grow in faith by learning from and leaning on many other resources. Click here to see other churches and organization we partner with. Here you can find some resources that we recommend for your own engagement in faith and the world.
Enter the Bible
Enter the Bible is a fantastic resource from Luther Seminary. It provides introductions to each Biblical book, short videos on biblical topics, advice for how to engage with scripture and so much more.
Curious about how our Pastors think through their sermons? Working Preacher is a great site full of resources on Biblical passages that will be read in worship in the coming weeks. Ascension uses the “Narrative Lectionary” in worship, so be sure to click on that tab.
The Lutheran is the monthly magazine of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It includes news, editorials, Bible studies, words from our presiding Bishop, and more.
Living Lutheran is a collection of blogs from various Lutheran writers across our country. Containing a wide variety of material, you’ll never know what you’ll find.
FAITH5 is a simple, easy-to-implement faith practice, perfect for incorporating into your bedtime routine for five to fifteen minutes a night. A great way to engage the faith of the whole family.
Bible for Kids App
Through interactive adventures and beautiful animations, kids explore the big stories of the Bible. The Bible App for Kids is a delight-filled experience designed to encourage kids to return again and again. It’s the beginning of a lifelong love of God’s Word.
What’s in the Bible?
From the creator of VeggieTales, comes a great set of videos for kids to explore the Bible. We have some copies of What’s in the Bible available at church, so come on by to try them out.
ELCA World Hunger
One in eight people in our world is hungry, and the ELCA is called by God to do something about it. ELCA World Hunger is a great resource for education and a way you can help feed those who are hungry.

Whether it’s a hurricane, earthquake, refugee crisis, or ongoing poverty, Lutheran World Relief is often on the ground, working with local partners to provide lasting solutions to poverty, injustice, and human suffering.
ELCA Social Statements
ELCA social statements are teaching and policy documents that provide broad frameworks to assist us in thinking about and discussing social issues in the context of faith and life. They are meant to help communities and individuals with moral formation, deliberation and thoughtful engagement with current social issues as we participate in God’s work in the world.
