• 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.

  • Partner Schools - Weekend Feeding Program
    Partner Schools - Weekend Feeding Program

    This Resource contains several documents supporting the weekend feeding program through the Partner Schools of The Church of the Resurrection.  The weekend feeding program, or Backpack Ministry, provides supplemental non-perishable food to children in need to make it through the weekend. In this Resource you will find examples of:

    • Backpack Permission Letter (English and Spanish version): Parents who choose for their children to participate in the program register their children, indicating their teacher and grade, sign, date and return the form. Goal is to encourage buy-in by parents and not assume that every family needs supplemental food to make it through the weekend.
    • Welcome to Backpack Program Letter:  Explanation of food provided and contact info for feedback
    • Teacher Information: Information about how students are enrolled in the program, logistics of delivery of food and pick up tubs used to transport bags, request for feedback and changes made based on feedback received in a previous year.
    • Volunteer Position Descriptions: Details about duties and time committment for various leadership roles and the church's expactations for lay leaders. Due to the complexity of the ministry and number of leadership roles these descriptions were developed to proivde clarity around responsibilities.
    • Backpacks for Hunger Angel Form: Form available on website and at the church which allows people to sponsor a backpack for a child through one time or ongoing contributions.

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.

    Many of us who do not have the Spiritual Gift of Hospitality might tend to only think about it as an attempt to change our behavior toward others. But God does not desire to simply change our behavior. Instead, God desires to change our character through the practice of spiritual disciplines and an obedient desire to know the heart of God. Here you will find tools to plan a 4-week series on “Radical Hospitality," including weekly themes, key scriptures, sermon building points and weekly sample worship order.
