Ascension Lutheran Church is a Christian church located in Sarasota, Florida. We proclaim God's Truth: the Good News of Jesus Christ crucified and raised for the salvation of all people. Due solely to the COVID-19 situation worship is web-based only at this time. Join us weekly via our live stream worhip and Bible study, and connect with others during worship!

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.


Pastor Marty Mielke III offers these welcoming words to you as a first time visitor online or in person!

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. Our on-site, full-time academic school provides Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade award-winning, accredited education for a student body made of young minds from many walks of life.


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.
