• Messages from the Wilderness
    Messages from the Wilderness

    In the Bible, the wilderness was both a geographic place, barren and harsh, and a metaphor for those times when life is filled with adversity. In our own lives, we all have seasons when we walk through the wilderness – seasons of loss, opposition, abandonment or despair. This sermon series from Church of the Resurrection studies the lives of five biblical characters who found themselves in the wilderness and offers keys to surviving our own wilderness times. You will find here all the series resources that were produced, along with the weekly sermons (with the exception of a Week 2 Sermon Illustration video which was regrettably lost due to a corrupted file).

  • Praying Out Loud Curriculum
    Praying Out Loud Curriculum

    Church of the Resurrection has compiled some favorite tips on prayer over the years into a concise curriculum. This has been turned into a class, often advertised as Praying Out Loud. The curriculum can be taught quickly (in an hour) or stretched out over a longer study course. It has been used with small groups and is designed to introduce people to the importance of prayer, making prayer a part of everyday life and gaining the courage to pray out loud.

  • Suicide Prevention Resources for Worship
    Suicide Prevention Resources for Worship

    National Suicide Prevention Week is a week when Americans across the country talk about suicide. These resources are an invitation for you to be a part of the solution – to be aware, to speak up, to care and to bring light and hope to those walking in darkness.

    Here you will find hope-filled sermons that look to those in scripture who struggled with suicidal thoughts, share personal stories from people who have lost loved ones to suicide and learn from professionals offering guidance on how to identify and help those who are struggling with suicidal thoughts. Other worship supports include bulletins and graphics, as well as handouts to share. You will also find a discussion guide designed to give individuals and those around them the tools to make sure they’re planning, collaborating, and expending energy in a way that draws them closer together. The guide is intended not only to help families be better equipped to identify and share their emotional experiences with each other, but also to help people be more comfortable reaching out for help and more comfortable extending a hand to help others.

    With the help of these resources, you can remind everyone in your reach – including yourself – that:

    •You are loved by, and matter to, God.

    •No pain lasts forever.

    •There is always hope.

    •Others can help – just ask.

    Here you'll find videos you can use to promote a sermon series on this topic, as well as samples of materials you can use for a church-wide study on this topic, including the opening chapters of the book Unafraid: Living with Courage and Hope in Uncertain Times, along with a corresponding small group video, leader guide and graphic.

    Where Was God When...
    There are times when God doesn't seem to make sense. We wonder why God allows terrible tragedies. We are disappointed when God doesn't answer our prayers. There are times when God seems deafeningly silent and absent in our lives. Ultimately we wonder, Is God there? Does God care? In this three-week series of sermons, Rev. Adam Hamilton addresses these issues and more while examining how to reconcile the Christian portrayal of God's love with our real-life experience.
