Study Buddies

Are you willing to tutor a student in first, second, third, fourth, or fifth grade for one hour a week? Study Buddies will begin soon and run through April. Please call Barb D.if you are willing to tutor or sign up at the Welcome Center. I also need substitutes when the tutors have a conflict. It is a rewarding experience!

Christmas Families

A holiday tradition at Resurrection is to participate in Lutheran Social Services “Adopt-a-Family” Christmas program. We adopt 3 or 4 families each year. The Christmas Tree will have Christmas Cards on it.  Each card will have a specific item listed and a family number (for example, Family #9, boy age 7, jeans size 6). Please take a card(s), purchase the item(s), wrap it in Christmas wrapping paper, and make sure to identify all packages with Family #, the person, and age (for example, Family #9, boy age 7).  If you have any questions please call Lynn D.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this special ministry!

Just Friends Interfaith Hospitality Network

JFIHN is a nation wide program where homeless folks are given shelter in a facility or in churches and then the local churches volunteer to provide meals for a week at a time.   Resurrection is responsible for feeding the families at IHN. The IHN facility is at 2925 East State Blvd in Fort Wayne. The food needs to be delivered between 5 and 6 pm.  So if you can’t or don’t like to cook you can deliver the food or go and help and serve and clean up. If you can’t deliver food you can make part of the meal. Sign up sheets are at the welcome center and there is plenty of opportunity. Please call if you have questions!

Thanks!
