Welcome to our worship service!

Today is sometimes called Ascension Sunday. This is the anniversary of Jesus’ ascension into heaven from our world. After Jesus was crucified, he was resurrected. He spent about forty days with his followers, in his resurrected body, teaching them about Scripture and about God’s kingdom.

At the end of those forty days, according to first chapter of the Book of Acts, his followers saw him ascend to heaven. And the next time we see Jesus in the Book of Acts, it’s the martyr Stephen gazing at Jesus in a vision and saying, “Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man [Jesus] standing at the right hand of God” (7:56).

What is the ascended Jesus like? He is glorious and he is the ruler of all things. In another vision, the apostle John sees all living things worshiping Jesus at the right hand of God, saying, “Blessing and honor and glory and might forever” to Jesus (Revelation 5:13). We do the same today.
