Saturday October 8
An afternoon of community goodness,
hosted by Resurrection Lutheran Church.
Sunday Morning Worship
We worship each Sunday at 9:30AM both at the church and online.
Our worship includes prayer, Scripture, a message, songs, Holy Communion, and time together with friends in Christ.
There is a staffed nursery each Sunday and there is also a time during the worship when kids 3yrs-6th Grade break out into small groups for prayer, an activity, a Bible Story, and the like. This break-out time is called "Spark" and is around 20 minutes during the worship service.
You can access the livestream via our YouTube Channel at 9:30AM on Sundays. You can also find past worship videos, too.
We try to offer a sensory friendly worship service. Several of our church members have children with sensory processing challenges and they have helped us provide a variety of resources, such as fidgets, weighted pads, and the like. We also have a sensory friendly room connected to the sanctuary. Mostly though: as a congregation, we welcome all our friends who live with sensory processing challenges and we hope you feel comfortable being who you are within the worship service and within the life of the church.
ALL ARE WELCOME!

CONNCECT, GROW, AND SHARE
Through the life of this church, we connect with God, with each other, and in service to our community, and as we connect with God, we also grow in our Christian faith and discipleship, and as we share God's love through word and deed, we connect more, grow more, and it becomes a lovely live-giving cycle!
