Sensory Friendly Worship 11:30AM
Welcome to Resurrection Lutheran Church!
We invite you to visit on a Sunday, to serve with us in the community, and to participate in the life of this church.
We are a church made up of people thankful for God's gift of Jesus Christ and who strive to follow Jesus in our daily life.
To help you get to know Resurrection a little better and to help you feel a bit more familiar and comfortable with the church, please feel free to contact the church and/or Pastor Ben, watch a couple short videos showing the life of the church, listen to a recent sermon, follow us on Facebook, visit on a Sunday, or check out upcoming events.
There is place for you in the life of this church! We hope you'll join us in the life-changing mission of Sharing God's Love.
ALL ARE WELCOME!
Sharing the Love of God!
Live our mission through worship, discipleship, and neighborly love.
Be a church in which all ages receive and share God's love and are equipped for a daily walk with Jesus .
Sunday Morning Worship
Just a few notes about worship at Resurrection:
We gather to be fed and nourished by God's love and grace and to be empowered for our daily life of following Jesus.
During worship, we celebrate Holy Communion every Sunday and we welcome all people at God's table. We hear God's Word proclaimed through Scripture, the sermon, prayers, music, etc.
All ages are invited and encouraged to participate in worship. At Resurrection this includes lots of kid noise, singing, praying, quiet reflection, and everything in-between.
We sing a variety of styles of music every Sunday. We provide a staffed nursery every Sunday and we also provide "Spark" during the worship for kids, which is about a 20 minute time period when the kids gather together to hear a Bible story and have a creative, kid-friendly sermon.
Sensory Friendly Service
This worship service is especially created for kids and families experiencing sensory processing challenges.
The worship includes prayer, Scripture, a brief homily, and holy communion: all in a sensory friendly atmosphere. For example, the service is 25-30 minutes, the lights are dimmer, the music is softer, and worshippers are welcomed to make use of the different chairs and fidgets, to move about as needed, to try the additional sensory friendly room, and to just be themselves.
The people of Resurrection who created this worship service are the parents of children living with sensory processing challenges and are also trained professionals who work with children with autism and sensory processing challenges.
We hope this worship service communicates that we believe the sounds, behaviors, and coping techniques of our sensory friends are not a distraction at all, but are a delight to God's ears.
Thank you for your generosity! Your giving turns into the Love of God shared through worship, kids programs, Bible studies, neighborly service in the community, and so much more!
By clicking the "Give" button you can make a one-time gift and/or manage your automated giving to the mission of Resurrection Lutheran Church!
