Welcome to Resurrection Lutheran Church
Resurrection is a strong and growing congregation. It began in 1984 using the land and building vacated by Christus Victor Lutheran Church. In 2005 the congregation sold that property, moved into a warehouse, and began plans to build a new facility near Huntertown. In 2007 the congregation moved into the new building.
The congregation has a strong and growing outreach ministry that includes things as diverse as an after school tutoring program to making solar cookers to send to Darfur. Small groups are also a major part of the congregation’s life with as many as ten to twelve small groups active at any one time.
The congregation’s worship style can be best described as liturgical but relaxed. The worship atmosphere is one that makes families with young children feel welcome. Recently, the congregation has begun a regularly scheduled Contemporary Worship Service.
Partnerships are also a major part of the congregation’s ministry. Currently, there are ministry programs that include work with the Interfaith Hospitality Network, Habitat For Humanity, the American Red Cross, and come2go Ministries.
The congregation continues to look to the future and ask the question, Where is God calling us to be in mission and ministry?
We look forward to your visit to Resurrection Lutheran Church. When you do visit, here is what you will find:
- A community of forgiven sinners
- A community based upon grace and forgiveness
- A community where worship is liturgical but relaxed
- A community where children are welcome and included
- A community that is active in love through sharing ministries
- A community committed to growth and change with an exciting and challenging future
If you are new to town and are looking for a church home, Resurrection Lutheran Church has a place for you. If you have fallen away from the faith and are looking to renew your relationship with God, Resurrection Lutheran Church wants to help in that renewal. If you are just curious about this man Jesus of Nazareth, Resurrection Lutheran Church will help you learn more about his life and meaning.
God bless you, and we look forward to meeting you.
THE MISSION OF
RESURRECTION LUTHERAN CHURCH
IS TO BRING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
TO THE COMMUNITY THROUGH WORD, DEED, EDUCATION AND WORSHIP.
THE SACRAMENT OF HOLY COMMUNION
We believe that in this Sacrament the true body and blood of Christ is received with the bread and wine. It is not a symbolic eating and drinking. Christ is truly present giving us the same body and blood given and shed for us On the cross. As we receive this Sacrament in faith we are assured of God’s forgiveness and strengthened in our love for Him. By participating together we also confess our oneness in Christ and our unity in what we believe and teach in this Lutheran Church and in much of the Christian church across the world.
Those worshiping with us today, whether members of this congregation or not, but who believe these statements about Holy Communion, are invited to the Lord’s Table. Your faith in Christ as Savior, your desire for the forgiveness of sins, and your willingness to celebrate this faith in the company of fellow believers is God’s gracious way of inviting you to Holy Communion today. Children are welcome to come to the Lord’s Table with their parents to receive a blessing. If they have had Communion instruction, they should put their hand out with palm up to receive the bread.
If for medical reasons you cannot partake of the communion wine, please tell the communion assistant and you will be given a non-alcoholic substitute. Gluten free wafers are available, please tell Pastor as you come forward for communion.
