  • The Art of Awkward Conversation
    The Art of Awkward Conversation

    Awkward conversations. We’ve all had them, and most of us cringe just thinking about them. Whether it's politics or family or social media, conversations can go south quickly. Thankfully, the Bible has something to say about this. Jesus found himself in quite a few awkward conversations, so we can learn how to navigate them with grace and humility by studying Jesus' tactics.

    In our current sociopolitical climate, it's obvious that we need to learn to talk to each other again. This six-session small group curriculum is designed to help you talk about awkward conversations - how to have them, how to move past them, and what God can teach us about grace in the midst of them. So, come on, let's talk.

  • The Climb Discipleship Pathway
    The Climb Discipleship Pathway

    Not everyone’s route toward growth will look the same. Your path will look different from others because your life experiences have brought you to your unique position. That doesn’t mean we can’t climb together, and it doesn’t mean we won’t have check points and opportunities for growth along the way. That’s what the Discipleship Pathway provides - basic check points that aid you in charting your own growth. Our prayer is that you utilize the Discipleship Pathway as a tool in your faith climb, and that you will encounter God in new and exciting ways as you reach new heights of love for God and others.

    This is the Discipleship Pathway for Tonganoxie United Methodist Church in Tonganoxie, KS.

  • The Reformation: 500 Years and Counting
    The Reformation: 500 Years and Counting
    To download, you need to register below as a ShareChurch.com user.

    500 years ago Martin Luther changed history forever. His hammer, nail and list of 95 beliefs so rocked the most powerful empire of his day that he was tried, convicted and excommunicated from the only life he’d ever known.
                                                             
    What did he believe that was so explosive? What did he assert that would cause the government to deem it a crime for anyone to offer him food or shelter? How did Martin Luther ultimately reform the Christian faith and change the world?
     
    This 3-week sermon series investigates one of the most pivotal figures in human history and the Reformation he began.  You will find here the weekly sermons, promo video and Grow, Pray and Study Guide for the series. Churches may use these sermons in adult Sunday School and Bible studies to learn about the Reformation as we mark the 500 year anniversary in October 2017.
    • Week 1 Sermon - A film crew has captured video from historic sites in Rome as Pastor Adam tells the story of Martin Luther and the beginnings of the Protestant Reformation.
    • Week 2 Sermon: Filmed on location in Germany, this sermon takes you to Erfurt where Luther went to school, took his vows of priesthood and was ordained; to Wittenberg to visit his home and the church where he preached more than 2,000 sermons; to Wartburg Castle where he translated the New Testament into German; and back to Wittenberg where he composed A Mighty Fortress is Our God and was laid to rest. The film crew was given rare access to Luther’s room at Wartburg and his cell at the monastery in Erfurt.
    • Week 3 Sermon: Reformation comes home. Preached at Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas, this sermon focuses on the perpetual need – in the Church and in our own spiritual lives – for reform.  Acknowledging that we always “see through a glass dimly,” as the Apostle Paul notes in 1 Corinthians 13, this series concludes with an exploration of tendencies we all face and tensions that develop within the church which often lead us to stray and even to divide.
  • Throwback
    Throwback
    Kicking it OLD school with a throwback look at the Old Testament and the 10 Commandments. Explore how the Old Testament is relevant and vital to the lives of teenagers today.

  • Thy Kingdom Come
    Thy Kingdom Come

    It isn't enough for a Rabbi (teacher) like Jesus, or any other Rabbi for that matter, to merely tell his students that it is important to pray. A Rabbi worth being called "Rabbi" and, therefore followed closely by his or her students, must model for them how to pray. This is what Jesus models for us in what the Christian community commonly calls The Lord's Prayer, found in Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:1-4.

    In this Resource, you will find a participant’s guide and leader's guide for the 6-week curriculum focused primarily on the Gospel of Matthew's version of The Lord's Prayer for use with a small group or mid-week discipleship classes. This curriculum was designed to be a complementary piece to use with a 6-week sermon series in August-September 2018 called Prayer: As Jesus Taught Us preached by Pastor Adam Hamilton at Church of the Resurrection, but may be used as a stand-alone curriculum as well.

  • Vacation Bible Camp Toolbox: Jesus & Me
    Vacation Bible Camp Toolbox: Jesus & Me

    Vacation Bible Camp is an excellent opportunity for outreach, not only to your church family with children but also to the greater community. Learn how Church of the Resurrection plans and organizes Vacation Bible Camp around a common theme and executes for all age levels.

    In this Resource, you will find: detailed lesson plans for Early Childhood through 5th grade, large group time drama, graphics and videos, volunteer training materials, missions details and more. Everything you need to provide an amazing experience for your kiddos is included, from detailed craft plans and snack ideas to recreation plans and how to pull off a successful shaving cream party.  Feel free to use bits and pieces or the entire thing!  

    Our theme, Jesus & Me, was based on the books Wonder, Auggie & Me and 365 Days of Wonder written by R.J. Palacio.  If you haven’t had a chance to read them, we encourage you to do so!  She has also written a book for younger readers titled We’re All Wonders.  These books inspired a move to Choose Kind, teaching empathy, compassion and acceptance.  In the story, the children learn from a favorite teacher about precepts (rules for very important things, mottos, famous quotes and things to help motivate and guide us).  We decided to take the week of VBC to teach our kids three precepts:
        
    Precept 1:
    You should treat people in the same way that you want people to treat you.  Matthew 7:12

    Precept 2:
    “I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”  Psalm 139:14

    Precept 3:
    Do all the good you can,
    By all the means you can,
    In all the ways you can,
    In all the places you can,
    At all the times you can,
    To all the people you can,
    As long as you ever can.
        -Commonly known as John Wesley’s Rule

  • Volunteer Management Practices
    Volunteer Management Practices

    The Volunteer Management Practices (VMP) Resource presents a framework of four practices critical for those who desire to lead/manage volunteers successfully. Intentional focus on these four practices – invite, connect, equip, and sustain – will prepare volunteers to have maximum impact in their service role in an engaging and fulfilling way. The VMP resources include a full-color chart that defines and provides examples of each of the four essential practices for leading volunteers in a healthy and sustainable manner, and four videos – one for each of the practices, in which ministry leaders at Church of the Resurrection describe real-life examples of how they live into that particular practice. These resources are excellent for use in training new leaders of volunteers, as skill refreshers for more experienced leaders, or as a reference for leaders who need a brush-up in a particular area.
