Ascension News and Comments

Worship with us in the season of Easter
Sunday, April 30, 2017 
at 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary
Today’s gospel begins with two disciples walking to Emmaus, overcome with sadness, loss, and disappointment. They had hoped Jesus, who was crucified, would be the one to redeem Israel! Yet the risen Christ walks with them, and then opens their eyes in the breaking of the bread. Each Sunday our hearts burn within us as the scriptures are proclaimed and Christ appears to us as bread is broken and wine is poured. The story of Emmaus becomes the pattern of our worship each Lord’s day.
Readings
Acts 2:14a, 36-41
Psalm 116:1-4, 12-19
1 Peter 1:17-23
Luke 24:13-35

Organ Renovation Project
          
Having the gallery Möller organ renovation work done by local artisans (Richard Hurley and Michael O’Sullivan, both former Möller associates) accomplished much more than originally planned and budgeted for Phase 1. Therefore, we were able to procure a 4½ rank chancel organ from Chaparral Christian Church to be installed in the East balcony which will be used as an antiphonal organ that was originally planned for Phase 2.
The organ was purchased by Ascension Lutheran Church in 2015, disassembled by Richard Hurley and Michael O’Sullivan, transported to Ascension from Chaparral Christian, and reassembled in the East balcony for use as our antiphonal organ.
The original 4½ rank instrument is being augmented by two ranks that are being added: 
1) the relocated Krummhorn rank from the Choir division of the Gallery organ, which had been replaced during the Gallery organ restoration by a Clarinet rank procured from a Möller organ in New Jersey, and
2) a Flute Celeste rank, procured from a Möller organ in Philadelphia. 
Electrical preparation work has been completed and installation of the pipework and chests has begun.
The progress of the renovation project has been documented through photos and videos:
