Welcome to Ascension Lutheran Church

Welcome to Ascension’s website! We’re glad you found us! We hope you’ll return again and again!

We have updated our homepage with new pictures (mine in real-time now) of our ministries and events. It’s always a challenge to keep our Website updated, because our congregation continues to evolve. We have many, many active organizations, and I suspect that there's something here for everybody, whether you have a special interest in worship, music, children’s education, youth, adult education, ministry opportunities and outreach, or fellowship activities. We have prepared a lot of great information right here on this website, and I want to personally invite you to look around, get to know us, and explore the pages we have prepared for you. Here are the resources, the links, and the conversations you need to feel welcome and, we hope, appreciated and understood. 

You may also contact our office directly at (321) 773-1815.  If our staff or volunteer leaders can assist you in any way, don’t hesitate to reach out.   Once again, thank you for your interest in Ascension Lutheran Church - we look forward to worshipping with you soon!

A Place Prepare

A PLACE PREPARE - A Series of Wednesday Services for Advent – Nov. 30,  Dec. 7 & 14 – 7PM

A Place Prepare takes weekly themes from some of the physical things that were in place when Jesus first arrived in Bethlehem. -- The hard, cold STONE of the manger-cave is warmed by the presence of the Lord.  Like so many of the things God provides us, STRAW is a consumable gift, intended not to be hoarded but used.  And the SWADDLING CLOTHES emphasize our Lord's true humanity and true humility. Please join us! Soup & Sandwich-6PM. Service-7PM.

Nov 30: Preparing a Place - Stone, 1 Peter 2:4-9 and Matthew 1:18-25 

The land of Judea--modern Palestine--is a land of stones. In every field, on every road, in ancient battlements and archaic city gates they are strewn. And or Lord--the baby we await this Advent season--was born into this land ... this land of stones. Our Lord--the baby we await this Advent season--was born into OUR world. For our world is a world of stones as well. It can be a hard, cold world. Yet, into this land of stone our Savior came--born in a stable cave. Christ entered our world--a land of stone. And His presence here, even in this land of stone will make all the difference!



Chrismons have been a long tradition in the church. Their designs are monograms and symbols of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because these designs have been used by His followers since Biblical times, they are the heritage of all Christians and serve to remind each of us, regardless of denomination, of the One we follow.

All Chrismons are made in a combination of white and gold to symbolize the purity and majesty of the Son of God and the Son of Man. Materials used in their construction are shite Styrofoam, pearls, gold mesh, sequins fringe, braids, beads, wires, etc. Finished decorations range in height from 2 to 12 inches in height.

 Chrismon Chalice  Chrismon Holy Trinity Chi Rho - The first letters for Christ in Greek. Christ the King.

5-point Ephiphany Star Chrismon 7-point Star - The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit 8-point star - Man's regeneration through Holy Baptism

Chrismon Shell - Holy Baptism Chrismon Cross on orb - Christ over the World.   Chrismon Crown - The Kingship of our Lord
