Ascension Lutheran Church


Welcome to our congregation. Join us!

Our congregation may be small, but our God is powerful! We pray mightily and know He hears our prayers. We are praying for you, that you will come to know God's love in your life.

We are currently in the call process for an under-shepherd to our flock. If you need pastoral assistance, please contact the church office 816-358-1919 or One of the elders will connect with you.

We are a Bible-based church, worshipping each Sunday following a liturgical order of service. What does this mean?!? It means we sing, we pray, we read from the Bible. We follow at pattern of worship that's been in place for hundreds of years but is still fresh each week. We read the same lessons in our service just like thousands of other churches around the world, yet the message speaks to each of us personally.

How can this happen? It's not because of what we do, it's because of what God does for us - He has sent His Son, Jesus, to live and die and rise for us, paying our debt of sin. Through Holy Baptism, the Holy Spirit comes to live in us and encourages us to worship together and share the Good News of Jesus with the world.

What can you expect here? While some may wear their "Sunday best," many are dressed more casually. It's more important that you're here - listening to the Word, praying, asking God to work in your heart. God encourages and lifts up each of us so we can face what the world throws our way. Knowing we have this firm foundation built on Christ, we can boldly proclaim that we are God's own. We find that joyously reassuring and want you to know about our best friend.
