Festival of the Ascension
Forty days after his resurrection, Jesus returned in glory to his Father in heaven. Scripture portrays this return as a triumph. Jesus accomplished perfectly all he came to do. The enemies are defeated. Our redemption is complete. We are victorious. Jesus now rules over all things for the benefit of his people. His ascension also assures us that he will return to earth one day to bring us to himself in eternal glory. That will be the final triumph.
Worship with us at the Festival of the Ascension of Our Lord. This is a joint worship service of the Racine WELS churches and Wisconsin Lutheran School. WLS grades 6-8 and the Joint Church Choir will be singing. Worship is at 7:00 pm on Thursday, May 5 at First Evangelical Lutheran Church. Together, through Scripture, song and prayer, God’s people celebrate and live the victory of our ascended Lord.
