Shining our Light:
2020 Annual Giving Campaign

Thank you for being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God.  What a blessing and honor to be stewards of what God has given to us!  Thank you for supporting our ministry and mission at Resurrection and allowing Resurrection members to be beacons of light in our parish and out in the community. No matter what amount you pledge to Resurrection, your commitment makes a difference in the ministry and mission we do. As part of your spiritual discipline, we hope you will make sure to joyfully turn in your pledge so we can continue to shine our light in the parish and in our community. 

You can pledge by filling out a card found in the narthex, or the easiest and most secure way to offer your pledge is by going to 

We hope to have all 2020 commitments turned in by December 8th. Thank you for being a blessing!


This Sunday we celebrate the Baptism of our Lord. 
This is an appropriate time to do baptisms of babies, children, and adults.

If you have never been baptized and would like to receive this primary sacrament of the church, please contact me,

I want to sincerely thank each member of the church for your loving outreach during the period of loss of my husband, Joe. From prayers, condolences, calls, visits, preparing meals, attendance at his memorial - so many ways you all showed the tender love of Christ.  It kept my heart strong and at peace. Each one of you are a servant of God and a blessing to me.  God Bless you all.

Our Communion Hymn:

Save Your People
By Jim Farrell

One thing I ask, O Lord, this I seek:
To dwell forever in your house
That I may gaze on your loveliness
All the days of my life.

For you will hide me in the shelter of your wings
And from the arrows of my foes
You set me high on a mountain top
Saved me from my distress.
