Welcome to Resurrection Lutheran Church!

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, receive a daily text message devotion, 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.

Worship

Sunday Morning Worship

9:30AM

Just a few notes about worship at Resurrection:

  • We celebrate Holy Communion every Sunday and all are welcome          at God's table.
  • We hear God's Word proclaimed through Scripture, the sermon,              prayers, music, etc.
  • We welcome all ages to participate in worship including babies                crying, toddlers shaking tambourines, and adults singing, praying,          and reflecting.
  • We sing a variety of styles of music every Sunday.
  • We provide a staffed nursery every Sunday.
  • We provide "Spark" during the worship for kids (20 minute Bible             story and activity).

Sensory Friendly Service

11:30AM

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.

What's the Rush 5K

This race is both your typical and not so typical 5K! It is typical if you would like to run, walk, or jog straight through the course, and it is not so typical if you'd like to stop along the 5K route for activities such as yoga, participating in a group art project, and learning about birds.

This race is both your typical and not so typical 5K! It is typical if you would like to run, walk, or jog straight through the course, and it is not so typical if you'd like to stop along the 5K route for activities such as yoga, participating in a group art project, and learning about birds.


Throughout the route there will be activities you can stop and do, after all, What's the Rush?! The activities are intended to be fun, whimsical, and creative and are geared for all ages. The race and activities all take place within the beautiful McKinley Woods -- Kerry Sheridan Grove and I & M Canal Trail.
