All of us here at Ascension would love for you to come visit and worship with us. Ascension is located on Highway 90 just west of the Jackson County Sheriff Office. Our physical address is 3975 Highway 90 Marianna, FL 32446. Each week we have Divine Service with Holy Communion at 11 o’clock with Bible Study before service starting at 10 o’clock. 

We are a congregation that worships in a traditional style. What that means is that we follow a set Order of Service that has been handed down through Church Tradition for centuries. We also love to sing hymns as a part of worship. It is our hope that the service is one of uplifting joy for all, but especially you our visitors.

A word from our pastor to you, “Come join us as we sing praise to God and as He comes to us in Spirit and in Word. Come as you are, sit wherever you’d like, be welcomed by our congregation, and more importantly be welcomed into your Savior’s house.”

 

COMMUNION

As we walk together as the body of Christ here at Ascension, we practice close communion. What that means is that all members of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) in good standing may receive the Holy Communion. If you are not a member of the LCMS we ask that you speak with our Pastor prior to the service if you desire to receive Holy Communion. We ask you to do this because of our belief about what it says in 1 Corinthians 11 about receiving the body and blood of the Lord unworthily. It is our belief that this is an act of love for your benefit, and we simply wish to know what you believe about what Holy Communion is and what It gives to you.    

 

SPECIAL SERVICES

Ascension does have special services during the seasons of Advent and Lent. Advent is the season that precedes Christmas and starts 4 weeks before Christmas. Lent starts on Ash Wednesday and culminates on Good Friday. During both seasons we have a midweek service that starts at 6:30 in the evening, and have soup and sandwich with fellowship starting at 5:30 p.m.
