• 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.

  • High School Bible Study - Titus
    High School Bible Study - Titus
    If there are two words to describe the letter of Titus, they might be “pastoral” and “practical.” The book of Titus is the brief letter of an older pastor (Paul) giving some solid and tangible advice to a younger pastor (Titus). Paul gets right to the point and doesn’t “mince words.” He is passing along words of wisdom as Titus leads his congregation and attempts to instruct them in the ways of Christ.

    This high school Bible study provides a complete walkthrough of the book of Titus. It was written for use in the spring of 2020, during the time of social distancing, but can be used interchangably as an online or in person study.

  • How Will You Measure Your Life
    How Will You Measure Your Life

    In the final class of each semester, Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christenson asks his
    students how they will apply the theories of business and organizations to their own lives to
    ensure that:

    • they are happy and successful in their careers
    • their relationships are an enduring source of happiness
    • they live lives of integrity

    Those discussions led to his best-selling book, “How Will You Measure Your Life?” This sermon
    series from Church of the Resurrection explores this same question. Drawing from scriptural teaching, it looks
    at how what we choose and value has far greater impact on our lives than what we achieve and
    acquire. You will find here all the series resources that were produced, along with the weekly sermons.

    Incarnation

    A baby is born in a stable in the backwater town of Bethlehem. His parents gave him the name Jesus. But the prophets, the shepherds, the wise men and angels addressed him by other names - titles really. He was the Messiah, the Lord, the Savior, Emmanuel, the Word made Flesh and the Light of the World. 

    In this sermon series, which includes the 4 weeks of Advent, Candlelight Christmas Eve and the week after Christmas, Rev. Adam Hamilton will explore the meaning of these titles and what they tell us about the child whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.

    The Royal Titles: MESSIAH and LORD
    The Deliverer: SAVIOR
    The Incarnation: EMMANUEL
    The Messenger: WORD
    The Revealer: LIGHT OF THE WORLD
