A Word of Thanks

Many, many “thank yous” to everyone who cleaned, donated, moved stuff, worked on the playground and all the millions of other ways you have helped get our Learn Center ready for the opening of school! You all have truly been the hands and feet of Christ! – Ginger Murphy

Change for a Dollar

Change for a Dollar is a ministry at Resurrection Church where every dollar collected separately from tithes & offerings each Sunday goes directly back into the community to help someone in need.

Continue to keep this ministry in your prayers. 

Serve with Us

As Christians we are called to serve others to God’s glory! Below are some current/ongoing opportunities to serve this church and the surrounding community!

  • Photographers wanted! If you have experience in photography, we’d love to meet with you about volunteer opportunities taking photos at church! Email for more info OR visit our Connect Center on Sunday!
  • Join our Rez C.R.E.W. (Christians Ready, Equipped & Willing). This ministry will be on hand for odd jobs needed done for those in our church. Anyone who has any sort of skill set that could help others in our church are encouraged to join! If you have a request for help by someone in Rez C.R.E.W., we want to hear from you! Email for help!
  • Starting tomorrow (Aug. 10): Another new way to serve! We are beginning a casserole ministry at Resurrection Church named “Casserole Connections.” Each month this ministry will assemble and freeze casseroles that will then be delivered to those in need in our church community. Join the group in the downstairs cafe space for their first “meeting of the minds” tomorrow (Aug. 10) at 6:15PM. If you would like to be part of this amazing opportunity, email Lauren ( for more details!
