Check our home web page for information about our livestream services on Facebook and YouTube.

Communion
The sacrament of Holy Communion is available to anyone who seeks the free gift of forgiveness through the grace of God.

Children
Children of all ages are welcome in our church.  Activities to keep young worshippers engaged during service can be found in the canvas bags hanging in the Narthex (lobby). Crayons, coloring pages, and other items are available for their use to help make this a family-friendly experience. If you feel your child needs a break, please feel free to hang out in the Narthex. A speaker allows you to listen to the worship service.  Sunday school for all ages is at 10 a.m. on most Sundays.

Entering the Sanctuary

If you would like to receive communion at your seat instead of individually at the front of the sanctuary, please pick up a pre-packaged individual communion wafer and wine cup (more communion details below). Bulletins may be picked up before entering as they are not handed out. 

Offering

Offering plates will be on stands at the sanctuary entrance. They are not passed around during the service.

Our Mission Statement
Reaching out to others, Living in faith, Celebrating Christ's love.

The Guiding Principles of Resurrection Lutheran Church

  1. All are welcome and invited here.
  2. We are kind and respectful to all.
  3. We teach and learn God's Word through our Lutheran Theology.
  4. As recipients of God's Grace, we extend Grace, Love, and Peace to all.
  5. Fellowship and Celebration are vital to who we are.

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.
