Made New

How do we balance our joyful celebration of Christ’s Resurrection with the enduring reality of our fallen world? That’s the question we will focus on during the next 8 weeks. The answer lies in the Gospel we proclaim—a Gospel of transformation. Transformation takes place when we integrate the promise of God’s coming kingdom with the […]

RLC Vision
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. These sermons explain what this means for our church and what we can all do to share in this vision.

Singing with the Exiles

This Lent, Isaiah 40–55 will shape us as we sing with the exiles as we learn from Isaiah to walk the Lenten way to the cross and to the empty tomb. God promises to turn our weeping into joy and our present pain into an endless Alleluia! See sermon videos on the RLC Facebook page.

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 […]

Summer in the Psalms

This series charted a 15-week course where we looked at grief Biblically and saw that one of the most vivid and creative ways grief is explored is through the Psalms. We looked at both psalms of praise and psalms of lament, seeing how God uses these words to bring His Gospel to hurting and grieving […]
