And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” Mk 10.14
As a church, we work together to engage the hearts & minds of our children and nurture them in Christian discipleship. We provide a chapel ministry during part of the service for children 10 and under, including a Sunday school as well as nursery care. The nursery opens at 4:45 pm, and parents are asked to sign in their child and discuss any pertinent details with the nursery workers. Your child is welcome to stay in the nursery for the duration of the service, though many parents choose to pick their child up at the peace so that the family can share in the meal of Holy Communion together.
Families are also invited to join in a simple dinner following the service so that kids can get to bed shortly after returning home.
Children’s ministry at Rez is a subset of our discipleship ministries. We strive to be faithful in discipling and teaching the children that God entrusts to our congregation. Children’s ministry at Rez has a few guiding principles that you can read about here if you’re interested in knowing more.
To volunteer with the Rez Children’s Ministry, email our Children’s Director, Julia Kraut.
Men’s ministry at Church of the Resurrection is very active, with an emphasis on building lasting friendships. We strive for a culture where men feel comfortable sharing their victories and weaknesses with each other and helping other men as they grow in their faith. Our monthly gatherings are a great opportunity to get to know other men and build these friendships. For example, some events include camping trips, breakfast and skeet shooting, the annual New Year’s Man Brunch, bowling, man-food and cards night, and fishing. To get involved – or just to make some friends – email Andrew Evans, or see our calendar for upcoming events.
