  • Having the Last Word
    Having the Last Word

    Having the Last Word is the follow up class to Binder for Life, a personal organizational system used at Church of the Resurrection for gathering the documents needed to manage your affairs should you become incapacitated or pass away.  Having the Last Word gives participants the opportunity to craft their memorial service or funeral, complete with choosing music, scriptures and final wishes.  While directed towards people who currently attend a church, it can be an excellent outreach opportunity particularly well suited for participants to invite non- or nominally religious friends or neighbors to church. Portions of this resource reference tabs in the Binder for Life.

  • How to Use Your Study Bible
    How to Use Your Study Bible

    This video is designed to help any Christian, and particularly newer Christians, understand the range of tools that the CEB Study Bible (and, more broadly, most good study Bibles) provide. Through the use of visual cues and specific examples, it clarifies how the Study Bible can help readers make sense of the Bible, and better know how to apply it to their lives.

  • Lenten Journal
    Lenten Journal
    In the early days of the church the season of Lent was a time to prepare new believers for the sacrament of baptism. While some Christians still participate in Lent for this, most Christians today embrace Lent as a time of repentance, reflection and fasting and strive to turn their full attention to God. One of the ways Christians turn their attention to God is to choose to give up something they value—chocolate, screen-time or social media, candy, food or certain foods, etc. We choose to give something up to remind ourselves who really sustains us—Jesus Christ, our risen Lord. For this reason, Church of the Resurrection encourages people to not only give something up, but to take something on. For example, some take on more regular Scripture reading and study, giving time to volunteer or in some other way giving something of themselves for the sake of others.
    Thus, this journal is built around the questions:
    What will you give up?
    What will you take on?
    We’ve created this Lenten Journal for you to use as a guide. A spiritual guide, that will work with our weekend Lenten worship services. We pray the guide will help you in giving something up, but also in taking something on. The guide is designed to help you read Scripture daily, reflect on and apply what you read, pray and consider tangible responses to serve God and others.

  • Middle School/High School Curriculum:  Selfie Series
    Middle School/High School Curriculum: Selfie Series

    Do you need a last minute lesson for your students at youth group or small group time?  This 2-week video and curriculum guide will lead your students through a fun, interactive and engaging small group time.  All you need is any number of students, a screen to show the video and about 30 minutes.

    A selfie is a picture that you take of yourself (with your camera held at arm’s length) with a camera or smartphone and every student is likely very familiar with them, whether they take them or their friends do, they are extremely prevalent in youth culture today, and only growing in popularity. By some estimates there were close to a trillion pictures taken in the year 2013 and up to 1/3 of those may have been selfies. With this idea in mind, why is it selfies are so popular? What do selfies say about us, those we surround ourselves with, and our relationship with God?

  • ONE - Unity in a Divided World - Group Study
    ONE - Unity in a Divided World - Group Study

    These videos (aprrox. 10 min. each) and study guides are based on the book ONE - Unity in a Divided World by Deidra Riggs. These resources were created by Southwood Lutheran Church for a sermon series and churchwide Small Group study. It was so well received, we want to share the resources with others! Deidra helps us think differently about unity, first examining our own hearts and how we are ONE with God, then examining how we interact with others as ONE Body in Christ. She tackles topics such as racial division in the Church, political convictions that ruin relationships and life experiences that shape us. How do we celebrate our differences rather than allowing them to divide us? This study is an eye-opening first step. Appropriate for youth as well as adults, feel free to add your own logo to front and back cover of the study guide.
