Bible Class and Sunday School at 9:30 a.m., Divine Service at 10:30 a.m.
First of all, WELCOME!
We are a group of believers who love their Lord, Jesus Christ, and seek to spread the saving love of Jesus Christ to others as well. No matter where or what you’re coming from, you are welcome here! Jesus Himself said that He came “to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10). Members at Resurrection know that on their own they’re lost in sin, but with Christ, they are leading new lives full of God’s grace and mercy and looking forward to an eternity in heaven. Please look below for some common questions about attending our church.
Where are you located?
Where should I park?
Parking is located behind the church. Pull into the driveway and you’ll find parking spaces behind the sanctuary.
What should I wear?
God wants us to respect Him, after all, He made us. So we encourage you to wear clothing that reflects this attitude. If this means shorts and a t-shirt to you, great! If this means a suit and tie to you, great!
What are your worship services like?
We worship following a liturgy. A repeatable and memorable worship helps engrain the truths of God’s word into our hearts and minds. We know that a liturgy is not always the easiest or most welcoming way to conduct worship, but we still think it is the best (ask our pastor why). That being said, our pastor guides the whole congregation, members and visitors alike, through the worship service, so that no one is ever lost. Our liturgy focuses on reinforcing the primary teachings of scripture, namely that we all are sinners, but that God sent Jesus to save sinners.
Are children welcome?
Absolutely! Here at Resurrection, we are of the opinion that if children do not attend regular church services, they will hardly, if ever, attend regular church services on their own. We don’t mind the outbursts, whines, or tantrums that every child throws now and then. You can keep them in church or take them out, it’s entirely up to you.
How long is the service?
Worship Services typically last between 50 minutes and an hour. On the second and fourth Sundays of each month, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper. This celebration usually adds about 10-15 minutes to the service.
May I take the Lord’s Supper (Communion)?
The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 10:16 that partaking of the Lord’s Supper is an act of communion. This means that by participating in the Lord’s Supper you and we are stating that we fully agree with all of the teachings of the Bible. Therefore we ask that any visitors speak with our pastor before they join us in the Lord’s Supper. In addition, God has told us that those who take the Lord’s Supper without understanding and faith, take the supper to their own judgment (1 Corinthians 11:28-29). Therefore we do not let guests and visitors take the Lord’s Supper without speaking to our pastor beforehand about their faith and understanding of God’s word. We do this out of love because we would not want anyone to hurt their relationship with God by not understanding what He gives them in the Lord’s Supper.
What do I have to do?
We welcome you to join in with our songs of praise, prayer, and all of the other parts of our liturgy. However, if you would rather take a more back-seat approach during your first few services, please come and participate as much as you would like. We never turn away visitors and we always welcome those who want to learn more about Jesus.
Do I have to give an offering?
The members of Resurrection fully support the ministry which God has placed in their care. Each service, an offering is held after the sermon hymn in order to have an opportunity to give back to the Lord. We in no way expect or require visitors to give an offering. If you would like to support our work through your offerings, then please place them in the collection plate as the usher passes it around. God does want His people to support the work of the ministry cheerfully, so members of Resurrection give in accordance with how the Lord has blessed them with means and a cheerful attitude.
