Grace is a cornerstone of our Lutheran faith, as outlined in Ephesians 2:8-9: "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God—not the result of works, so that no one may boast."
Grace means that we don't have to earn the love of an angry or judgmental God. No performing, no pretense. God loves everyone, shortcomings and all. That's grace. And we respond to God's grace through faithful good works, loving others as we've been loved by God.
Unique to Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, each year we sign a member-written covenant, promising to love and care for each other and the community as Christ teaches.
We follow the beliefs and structure of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), a church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person—questions, complexities and all.
Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.
We welcome all people created in the image of God, Creator of the universe inclusive of: race, culture, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression; relationship or social status; abilities or disabilities; outcast or stranger; typical or atypical skills; how the world describes you or you describe yourself.
We invite those sure in who they are, those still seeking and those looking for a church that believes in a loving, non-judgmental, safe, inclusive, grace-filled God and a beloved community that reflects those values.
Because God loves us unconditionally, we share our Christian love through acceptance, inclusion, and understanding.
We welcome you to share yourself, your time and talents with Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, a part of God’s universal Church. God made each of us unique and we share our diversity here.
