Faith In Action!
What does “Ascentria” mean? We define it as “rising together.” Our faith-based legacy remains the heart and soul of our mission, vision and values. We honor our Lutheran heritage and are affiliated with Lutheran Services in America (LSA), Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS).
Inspired by our faith-based heritage and guided by compassion, courage and integrity, we are rising together to help one another.
Committed to “Putting Faith in Action”
- Developing relationships with congregations and faith groups that are committed to empowering individuals and families to respond to life’s challenges.
- Increasing awareness and engagement with faith communities and their members through the Ascentria Faith Ambassador Program and the Ascentria Speakers Bureau.
- Providing opportunities for congregations and faith groups to support the families and individuals that we serve through initiatives like our Christmas Gifts program or the 50 Days of Easter campaign.
