Bowling with The Ascension Lutheran Church

On Thursday, September 20th The Men’s Ministry of the Ascension Lutheran Church met up with our boys for their monthly adventure. This event was held at Riverside Lanes where they all enjoyed bowling, hot dogs and hamburgers.  There were many strikes in the game that landed many smiles on the youth and volunteers faces. Our youth are so excited to see what’s in store for next time. This event was a “BIG” hit!
