Services

Welcome!

We are back in church in person! Please join us for Holy Eucharist at 8am or 10:30am if you feel safe and ready to do so, and if not we will hold your spot while you watch us on Facebook Live. We have made some COVID-19 adjustments to the LIVE services:

  1. We have reduced seating options–every other pew is open with seating on the ends only,
  2. Christian Education is on hold for just a bit longer,
  3. We take the “body” during communion, and
  4. We are wearing masks and maintaining social distancing for your safety.

Our seating “spots” are for family/household units and we can safely have 28 households per service. Our space is cleaned between services and we use designated doors to Enter and Exit the church. Please read the information below for In-Person Worship Guidelines at Resurrection.

Our “normal” invitation to worship at Resurrection sounds like this—Please join us this very Sunday for The Holy Eucharist which is our service of communion or mass. We do this every Sunday at 8:00 am (a quiet, contemplative service with no music) and at 10:30 am (our principal worship service with choir and hymns). We gather in Rogers Hall after worship to check in with each other, have a cup of coffee and a bite to eat. All children three and younger are welcome in the nursery, but we also love to have children in church — we believe a noisy church is a healthy church. Christian Formation for all ages begins at 9:15. On Wednesday evenings we share a meal together at 6:00 pm. followed by a relaxed, discussion-based Bible Study that ends by 8:00 pm.

However, we are in abnormal times of COVID-19, so THIS is how we invite you to worship with us–Please join us at 8:00am or 10:30am IN-PERSON or ON-LINE (10:30am only) this very Sunday for the Holy Eucharist which is our service of communion or mass. We have returned to in-person worship for both services. The 8am service is Rite 1 which is a quiet, contemplative service with no music. Our 10:30am service is Rite 2 and it is our principle service with choir and hymns. If you join us online via Facebook Live at 10:30am, it can be a quiet service in your home, or you and your family can be as noisy and sing as loudly as you want. We love to have children in church, whether it is from your home or with us in person. We really do believe a noisy church is a healthy church. Come and see when you can.
