Ascension Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Metropolitan New York Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The ELCA is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with over 3.3 million members in more than 8,900 congregations across the 50 states and in the Caribbean region. Known as the church of “God’s work. Our hands,” the ELCA emphasizes God’s saving grace through faith in Jesus Christ, Christian unity, and service in the world. The ELCA’s roots are in the writings of German church reformer Martin Luther.
At Ascension, we support various ministries, including Lutheran Disaster Response, Lutheran Family and Community Services, Seafarers International, Water Mission, Faith Mission Food Pantry, PMD Foundation, Tunnel to Towers Foundation, Rescuing Families, Inc., The Helpers Fund, and the ELCA Good Gifts program.
We also serve the community by providing an important gathering space for such groups as AA, Alanon, and Scout troops.
