An Ascension Eve worship service will be held at 6:30 pm in the Sanctuary on Wednesday, May 12, 2021. Ascension Day celebrates Christ’s ascension to heaven according to the scriptures, and is usually celebrated forty days after Easter. Pentecost is celebrated 50 days after Easter.
Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:19-20, Luke 24:50-53 and Acts 1:6-11 all give an accounting of Jesus ascension.
While on earth, He was a servant. Now in heaven, He is exalted and the ruler and Lord of all. By entering heaven as the representative of mankind, He completed the work of our salvation and guarantees the eventual glorification of all who love Him. Just as Jesus went up in the clouds, He will return the same way.
