Worship at Home

Sunday Worship

We are delighted to share resources to help you worship at home - together with God and each other. The following Worship at Home guide has been crafted with families in mind, but it may be easily adapted for households with no children or those who live alone.
You may use these materials as-is with the members of your household, or you may join others via Zoom or Facebook Live on Sunday, March 22 at 10 a.m. Pastor Mitch will lead participants in these materials and share a reflection on the day's Gospel reading (bonus: sing along with Pastor Mitch and his guitar).
  • To join via Zoom, visit Please have everyone in the house join on the same device (this Zoom session is limited to 100 participants), and keep your connection on mute. If you would like to be visually present with others during our time together, you may turn on your camera. Learn to use Zoom
  • To join via Facebook Live, visit and continue to refresh the page until you see the live-stream video begin. Click the video to join. Anyone can participate via Facebook Live (no limit).
  • Video replay: If you prefer the experience of a full Lutheran worship service complete with congregational singing, enjoy this video replay of RLC worship from three years ago on this same Fourth Sunday in Lent.

Continued Giving

Your generosity makes it possible for Resurrection to provide opportunities for worship, learning, service, and outreach that make such an impact on so many lives. As we face new challenges, we discover new possibilities to be God’s voice and open arms in the world - to bring comfort, belonging, and hope in the midst of isolation and uncertainty.

Please remember to mail your contribution to the church office or give electronically. If you need assistance, please contact the church office.

Learning at Home

Children & Youth

Although we cannot meet for Learning Hour, learning together can still happen at home! Each week, we will provide digital materials for you to use with children and youth.

Preschool through fifth grade: Download materials from our online folder that includes a portion of the Whirl curriculum used in Learning Hour classes. These materials, grouped by week and grade, include learner leaflets, videos, and a selection of activities for each grade. The learner leaflets may be printed, or you can just view them on a device. You may also download videos for personal viewing, however, due to copyright licensing, please delete any downloaded video files after viewing. Do not share or distribute these materials online.
Youth (grades six through 12): Each week, you will receive a new link to a discussion starter from the ELCA that is also tied to the weekly lectionary. These are designed to dialog current events with Sunday's Gospel text. There are discussion questions, reflections, and activities tailored for this age group.
Zoom Session: All students in FaithBuilders and Youth Group are invited to participate in a joint Zoom session this Sunday, March 22 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. We’ll check in with each other, talk about what’s going on, and end our night together in prayer. For details on joining the Zoom meeting, contact Victoria Hoppes.

Zoom Communion Instruction: Pastor Ryan will complete communion instruction via Zoom at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays March 25 and April 1. Students in fourth grade typically participate in these classes, but older children who haven’t yet received the instruction are welcome and encouraged to participate as well. For details on joining the Zoom class, contact Victoria Hoppes.


The Wired Word on Zoom: Pastor Ryan will lead a Wired Word discussion via Zoom on Monday evenings at 7 p.m. This is one of our regular faith formation opportunities for adults that will transition to an online format very easily. We take topics from current events and connect them with faith and scripture. There is certainly plenty to discuss! For details on joining the Zoom meeting, contact Pastor Ryan.

Live-Streaming Prayer: Pastor Ryan is leading morning, noon, evening, and night prayer via Facebook Live. Some may know this as the Daily Office – a tradition that has always been available to us, but can be a real gift during this time of isolation and instability. Join Pastor Ryan on Facebook for prayer at 8 a.m., noon, 6 p.m. or 9 p.m. (all times are Eastern).
Please continue to watch your email and Resurrection's social media accounts, especially Facebook, and for updates. And seek out opportunities to keep in touch with one another in non-physical ways.

May Christ himself, who loves us, comfort our hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word.
