Dear Members and Friends of Resurrection Parish:
You are by now surely aware that this Sunday, November 6th, is Consecration Sunday & New Parish Hall Groundbreaking for our congregation. We will have worship services at 8:15 and 10:30 this Sunday. We believe that you are invested enough in your spiritual growth and the mission and ministries of our congregation to attend this special Sunday.
reakfast will be served beginning at 9:15 and the groundbreaking ceremony will start immediately at 10:00.
We would like to have as many of you there as possible so we can get a group photo of this historic ceremony. If you have not yet finalized plans to attend these two events, please do so as soon as possible.
Our goal is to have every member and regular worship attendee present. The effectiveness of our church's mission and ministries next year depends on your participation and stewardship. Please make whatever sacrifices are necessary to be with us this Sunday. I look forward to sharing this special day with you.
Your servant in Christ,
Family Worship Sunday
This is my prayer in the desert
When all that's within me feels dry
This is my prayer in my hunger and need
My God is the God who provides
And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved
Of more worth than gold
So refine me, Lord, through the flame
And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain
I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here
All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship
This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I'm filled to be emptied again
The seed I've received I will sow
In your ocean, I'm ankle deep
I feel the waves crashin' on my feet
It's like I know where I need to be
But I can't figure out, yeah I can't figure out
Just how much air I will need to breathe
When your tide rushes over me
There's only one way to figure out
Will ya let me drown, will ya let me drown
Hey now, this is my desire
Consume me like a fire, 'cause I just want something beautiful
To touch me, I know that I'm in reach
'Cause I am down on my knees, I'm waiting for something beautiful
Oh, something beautiful
And the water is risin' quick
And for years I was scared of it
We can't be sure when it will subside
So I won't leave your side, no I can't leave your side
In a daydream, I couldn't live like this
I wouldn't stop until I found something beautiful
When I wake up, I know I will have
No, I still won't have what I need
