Eighteenth Sunday After Pentecost
September 18, 2016


"We invite everyone to share communion around God's altar. 

We strive to be a welcoming and relevant Christian community doing what matters through prayer, worship, teaching, outreach, fellowship, and service.  
We will demonstrate the real life application of scripture, tradition, and
reason by providing a safe place to respond to each other's needs,   
hurts, joys, and interests."

Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl
by Lisa Terkeurst will be the new Bible Study focus. The first meeting will be on Thursday, September 22, 6:00 p.m. at the church.  All ladies are welcome!  The participant book may be purchased (but is not required) at  proverbs31.org .                See you there!               Denise Dorsey
Is something missing in your life?   Lysa TerKeurst   knows what it's like to consider God just another thing on her to-do list. For years she went through the motions of a Christian life: Go to church. Pray. Be nice. Longing for a deeper connection between what she knew in her head and her everyday reality, she wanted to personally experience God's presence. Drawing from her own remarkable story of step-by-step faith, Lysa invites you to uncover the spiritually exciting life we all long for. With her trademark wit and spiritual wisdom, Lysa will help you enjoy the passion of conversation with God, discover the life-changing words of the Bible, watch God use disappointments for good, and find incredible joy as you live your faith out every day. 

Reading Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl will enable you to:
  • Learn how to make a Bible passage come alive in your own devotion time
  • Replace doubt, regret, and envy with truth, confidence, and praise
  • Stop thinking that there's something bigger and better that you're supposed to be doing
  • Have inner peace and security in any situation
  • Sense God responding to your prayers.

We would like to gather information on music in worship, 
music talent in our parish, and preferred music styles. 
This will help the music ministry at Resurrection better serve YOU!

Anti-Racism Training 
September 24, 2016 9:00-4:00

The Anti-Racism Training model of the Episcopal Church is designed to make us all more aware of how society's racist past still haunts us today. Through self-examination and sharing our stories, we come to learn more about how our behavior affects others, and how our society, institutions and churches affect how we think and feel about others. After anti-racism training, you will never watch the news the same again!

More information and registration

Resurrection is hosting the next training for the Northeast Convocation on Saturday, September 24, from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.  Dr. Catherine Meeks will facilitate the training. 

We will be providing a sub sandwich lunch for the group, so we would appreciate donations of chips, salad and desserts. Please contact Denise Dorsey if you have any questions.

Since 1991, General Convention has committed the Episcopal Church to address racism within our church, society and the world. We all recognize when obvious racism, discrimination or oppression occurs, but many of us are completely unaware of the subtle racism that occurs everyday all around us and how we are involved in perpetuating it. To better educate ourselves about the underlying racism in our daily lives and institutions, all lay and ordained leaders in the Episcopal Church are required to attend anti-racism training. Each and every member of the church can also be involved in the effort to end the institutional racism that exists in the church. Together we can make our church a welcoming place, devoid of racism and any form of prejudice and discrimination.

Working together for justice.
