Youth Ministry

The youth at Ascension involves anyone in grades 7-12.  In our programming throughout the year, we strive to incorporate a mix of ministry, discipleship, worship, fellowship and outreach.

YOUTH GROUP: CIA - Sundays at 6:30 p.m.

The youth group is called C.I.A. which stands for Christians in Action and is designed for 7-12th graders.

We provide events, service projects and retreats throughout the year for grades 7-12th.

For those entering 9th grade and exiting 12th grade, we take a stateside mission trip every other year and attend the AALC Youth Conference in Colorado on the other year.

CONFIRMATION: Wednesdays @ 6:15 p.m.

Students in 7-8th grade are encouraged to solidify their faith through our confirmation program.

SUNDAY SCHOOL: Sunday School every Sunday for all ages Labor Day - Memorial Day - 9:45 a.m.

Our mission: Transformed by the love of Christ, we strive to be His faithful disciples.

The Gathering

In an effort to reach out to as many students as possible in the Cedar Valley, we have created "The Gathering" where we invite students in 6th-12th grade from area Lutheran churches, Valley Lutheran students and students at other schools. This provides a great chance for students to come together for a large group event with the goal of fun, fellowship and faith.

Events in the past have been Dodgeball, Laser Tag, American Gladiators, & more! Our main event is a 6-person dodgeball tournament in the Fall/Winter. These events are a great opportunity for students to invite their friends and make connections with students outside their own church/school.
