Coffee with Christ is a monthly Bible study group for women. The group meets at Kettle Coffee & Tea in historic downtown Escondido. The format is casual and informal—come if you have time to discuss God's word with us.
Our current study series is “Prepared to Answer.”
Mark your calendar for Friday, January 13 starting at 6:00pm for game night at Ascension. Bring family, friends, a favorite game (or two), and a favorite snack or appetizer to share. We’ll meet in the Fellowship Hall for an evening of fun and games. Come any time after 6pm when it’s convenient for you and join in.
Christmas Day worship at Ascension Lutheran features a service of lessons and carols. A local version of a longstanding English tradition, the congregation gathers to hear nine short lessons from Scripture and to sing several new and classic Christmas hymns.
Join the Christmas Eve tradition! Your calendars are already marked for Christmas Eve, so consider marking 6:30pm for a special candlelight service at Ascension Lutheran. The annual tradition at Ascension Lutheran includes beloved Christmas carols, an uplifting message from Pastor Learman, and a candlelight prayer and singing of Silent Night.
Spread Christmas cheer and gospel joy to the residents of the our local care facilities here in Escondido through our annual Christmas caroling outing from Ascension Lutheran. Christmas caroling is a fine example of Christian love. It is gratuitous grace, free of charge, and offered with no strings attached. What a fine expression of the unconditional gospel!
