What to Expect

Resurrection Lutheran Church is a community of sinners redeemed through the cross of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to make disciples, using the gospel in Word and sacrament to win the lost for Christ and to nurture believers for lives of Christian service. And you are a part of that mission!

What do you offer on Sunday Morning? 

Worship Services at 8:00 am and 10:30 am
After worship, we gather in the Fellowship Hall for a time of fellowship with coffee, donuts, and conversation.
During the Education Hour at 9:15 am, the children, youth group, and adults are welcome to attend Sunday School and Bible classes.

What should I wear? 

Suits and dresses, business casual, shorts and t-shirts – you will see a wide variety of clothing on a wide variety of people of all ages.

What about my children? 

Children are most welcome in worship. Non-communion services will have a children’s message – a special time for them to hear the Gospel - or Good News - of Jesus Christ.
A live feed of the service is available in the Fellowship Hall for those who need to leave the sanctuary. However, we encourage families to worship together as families.
Children are important to us at Resurrection and there are many opportunities for them to participate, learn, and serve.

What is the Service Like?

The Word of God is central to our worship – we hear it, speak it, and sing it. Jesus Christ is central to our worship. We preach Christ crucified and risen from the dead (1 Corinthians 1:22-24). Our worship is even called “Divine Service” because God comes to us and serves us when we gather in worship. God serves us and is present with us as speaks to us through His Word and Sacraments (baptism and the Lord’s Supper) and we respond with praise, prayer, and thanksgiving.
Worship at Resurrection is liturgical – using traditional orders of worship as handed down over the centuries of Christianity and Lutheranism. We use hymnals in worship to follow and participate in the liturgy and to sing praise to God. 
Music is part of our identity as Lutherans and as Resurrection Lutheran Church. We sing the best hymns and songs from across the 20 centuries of Christianity. The song of the church is supported by organ or piano and our choir.

What do you Believe?

We believe in the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as it is written in the Holy Scriptures and in the Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds. These creeds are summaries of the Christian faith as believed by Biblical Christians since the earliest days of Christianity.  We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God as our Lord and Savior – who willingly humbled himself and became human in order to die for the sins of the whole world and rise from the dead. Those who believe in him will no longer perish, but will rise from the dead – body and soul - to enjoy eternal life with him.
As Lutherans, the people of Resurrection believe that we have been saved by the grace of God alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. We confess our faith as written in the Holy Scriptures and as explained in the Lutheran Confessions.
As a member church of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, we are in fellowship and work together with WELS congregations and dozens of Lutheran church bodies around the globe who share a common confession of faith. For more information on the WELS, and who Jesus is, go to wels.net or contact us – we would be glad to talk!

How do I find out more? 

We welcome you to speak with either of our pastors, the ushers, or greeters. Feel free to ask questions - we love them! Periodically, there will be a new member class for those who wish to join Resurrection as a member.
