Lifting Hands, Holding Hands, Opening Hands

Our Vision Statement – What Does This Mean? Resurrection Lutheran Church members are lifting their hands in worship, holding hands in prayer groups, and opening hands to share the love of Jesus with our community.

Made New

Give Thanks

For the rest of the month of November we focused on how, as Christians, we can give thanks in all sorts of circumstances. Specifically, we looked at Psalm 107 during our Sunday services and Psalm 118 on Thanksgiving Eve and saw how we are called to live out the phrase, “Give thanks to the Lord, […]

Justified
Justified!

Justified! What does that mean? It is one of those church words that probably doesn’t mean a lot outside the church walls. For five weeks in October, we celebrated what it means to be justified as we walk toward celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in a special way. Each service in the series highlighted a […]
