The Ascension of Our Lord Chapel is a historic Russian Orthodox chapel in Karluk, Alaska. It is believed that an original church was built in Karluk in the 1700s. The current church was built in 1888, with design and building "attributed to one Charles Smith Hursh". Its architecture shared some with its contemporary Russian Orthodox church at Belkofski, but has "a more fully realized design for a small church, embodying eclectic features of one main stream of R. O. rural church design."[2][3]

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
