Ascension Lutheran Church is a member of the Southwest California Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Ascension is a cross-generational community of believers where all of God’s children, from birth to the end of life’s journey, are valued and called to be partners in ministry. Our vision compels us to be a place where children, youth, and adults, are equipped to do ministry and to be God’s caring presence, both in our local and global community. Our motto is “Invite-Grow-Serve”.  Ascension is a Fair Trade congregation, a Bread for the World congregation and a Jubilee USA Network congregation.  The Congregation has approximately one thousand and five hundred (1500) members.

Our Fair Trade Team includes members of our Global Ministries Team and other volunteers including youth from our Church & School. The Team reports on plans and activities monthly to the Global Ministries Team & to the Church Council.
