Join us every Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. for a traditional Lutheran worship service. Or, join us in singing with our Praise Band as they play your favorite contemporary Christian songs at the 11:00 am Contemporary Worship service.
Our Sunday school programs for children run from 9:45 a.m. - 10:50 a.m. mid-September through May. The adult class is at 9:45 a.m. most Sundays during the summer.
For 2019-2020, the youth school theme is "One Body, Many Members", using 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 as our inspirational scripture. This scripture teaches us that each part of God’s diverse creation is beautiful and necessary for the health of the Body of Christ, and all the different parts must work together for the Body to reach the full potential intended by the Creator.
The adult class will study the C. S. Lewis book Letters to Malcolm, Chiefly on Prayer. Lewis shares his understanding of the role of prayer in our lives and the ways in which we might better imagine our relationship with God.
Holy Communion is a meal that unites us as one in the Body of Christ. Those who have been baptized and believe that the real body and blood of Jesus are present in, with and under the forms of bread and wine for the forgiveness of our sins and the feeding of our faith are welcome to participate in this sacrament.
Grape juice is also offered; the white grape juice is in the center of the tray. Those not receiving Holy Communion are invited to come forward for a blessing or remain seated in prayer and meditation. Children are especially encouraged to come forward. Gluten free communion wafers are available upon request.
Children of all ages are welcome in our church. As you enter the sanctuary, there are small tote bags with crayons and coloring books which you can take to your seat. Parents are also welcome to relax in the narthex (entrance area of the church) with their children as the speakers allow families to hear and participate in the service.
We Are an Inclusive Church
At Resurrection Lutheran Church we strive to be a welcoming community. We are called by the Gospel to live in a supportive faith community; a congregation of relationships connecting us with each other and with God.
When we discover people who are feeling alone, feeling disconnected from God, or marginalized by another church, we want them to know that our doors are open for them to join us on our journey of faith together.
We strive to accept people as they are, including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. Our mission is to reach people with the love of Jesus Christ. All people, regardless of age, race, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, or cultural background, are welcome at RLC. As a Lutheran Church, in accordance with the openness of the ELCA, we extend a hand of grace and peace to all who wish to join us. We believe all people are genuinely and entirely loved children of God, and we want them to know that.
As disciples, we know that society is always in the midst of controversy, and that none of us has all the answers to some of the divisions within our society, but we know that God is capable of showing extravagant grace, radical inclusion, and relentless compassion in such abundance that all we can do is stand in awe and give thanks.
No matter what a person's status, they are welcome to love and serve God in the faith community found at Resurrection Lutheran Church.
