Resurrection Lutheran Church is a member congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the ELCA. As a member of the National Expression of our Church - we partner with over 10,000 other congregations just like us to make a difference in our communities, our state, our nation and the world.
As a member of a national church body, ELCA congregations are centers for evangelical mission, where people of faith celebrate, learn and connect with one another and others around the world through worship, discipleship and service. We are a church that belongs to Jesus - we follow Jesus. As followers, we strive to look more and more like our master. Sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail but we always know that we can always rejoin the journey, refreshed and strengthened for the new day.
The ELCA is the national expression of the local congregation, it is where we come together to accomplish more than we could ever accomplish alone. ELCA congregations support ministries like Lutheran World Relief, Malaria Initiative, Campus ministry, Outdoor ministries, Colleges & Universities, Public presence, Refugee support among many others. These are made possible through the partnerships we share as members of the ELCA.
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. For us as the ELCA, this faith comes through the good news of Jesus Christ and gives us the freedom and the courage to wonder, discover and boldly participate in what God is up to in the world.
