Sign-up now Dinner Go Round

A favorite winter tradition returns to Resurrection in January!   Singles and couples are invited to participate in Dinner-Go-Round groups that will choose to either rotate dinner among the homes of those in each group or dine in a restaurant.  Each group makes their own rules and chooses their own times to meet.  Sign-up on the Narthex bulletin board and you will be placed in a group of six.  Each participant or couple will host only once.
Soaps and Lip Balms

Help support the Benedictine Convent of Perpetual Adoration as well as Resurrection by purchasing soaps and lip balms for personal use or gifts this holiday season.  Products are perfect for sensitive skin and are made with all natural ingredients with careful attention to detail. 

Monastery Scents came from very humble beginnings - a simple gift of a bar of soap.  This gift received by Benedictine Sister of Perpetual Adoration, Cathleen Marie Timberlake, inspired her to begin crafting her own handmade soap as a valuable source of income to support their community.
2018 STEWARDSHIP CAMPAIGN Journey to Generosity
Please Pledge NOW On-Line
Our annual Stewardship Campaign, Journey to Generosity,  officially finished last Sunday, but there is still plenty of time to pledge if you have forgotten to do so.
Pledging is an important component of our faith and a visible sign of support of our Church.  Without your contributions Resurrection would not be able to exist.  There would be no Episcopal church in Blue Springs.
