We are a church of the WELS (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod) and are a Christ-centered congregation, focused on Biblical doctrine expressed in a family-friendly atmosphere. Our traditional Christian services feature classic hymns with occasional contemporary songs performed in a reverent, blended style to lend a modern element to our traditional Christian worship service.

Here's the film's story:
A small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day, he finds the courage to break free, embarking on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a lovable sheep who has lost her flock, and Dave, a dove who has lofty aspirations. Along with three camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told -- the first Christmas.
This is a free event. Start time: 6pm on Dec. 4th. If rain, event will be rescheduled. Directions/contact info here.
While this is an outdoor event, masks / social distancing are strongly encouraged.
We share the love of Christ and His Gospel because of what God first did for us.
Ascension's mission is to partner with Sarasota-area families and visitors through our Lutheran church and school. We offer children's Sunday school and adult Bible studies courses for Christians at all stages of Scriptural maturity.

Ascension's Christian church and school family, through the blessing of the Holy Spirit, provides a nurturing, dedicated environment for Christ-centered worship, growth, and outreach. Here's what we believe.
