The Ascension of Our Lord always falls on a Thursday – 40 days after His resurrection. It’s rarely celebrated on that day. But this year is different. We’re having a Worship Service on Thursday, May 21, on the grounds of St. John’s Lutheran Church! Since space is limited on the lot, there will be two Services offered: 5:00PM and 6:30PM.
