  • 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.

  • 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).

  • Middle School Bible Study - Luke
    Middle School Bible Study - Luke
    This study provides an opportunity for middle school students to take a deeper step in
    their walk with God or take the next step toward Jesus. The Gospel of Luke contains some of the best stories in all of the Bible, and some unique stories that you can’t find in the other gospels of Matthew, Mark, or John.

    This study was written in the spring of 2020, during the time of social distancing, but can be used interchangably as an online or in person study.

  • 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?

    Mission Partnership Tools

    Partnering in ministry with another church or organization, especially cross-culturally, is challenging. These tools are used by Church of the Resurrection to manage mission partnerships in ways that are mutually edifying, making both partners equal, and allowing both parties to bring their talents and resources to the table.
