 ISSUES AND ANSWERS SERIES:  15 January – 11 June

This series for adults will cover a wide-ranging list of issues and answers relevant to the Christian’s life. We will approach current events, social/political controversies as well as theological issues which the Christian faces.  The Bible does not always provide elementary black and white answers but instead, offers principles of good, better and best. These are principles which the Christian must ultimately apply him/herself in their unique contexts or within a worldview and a developed personal theology. This series is substantially structured as one emphasizing class discussion and evaluation. It primarily will be facilitated by Thom Rake.  (Class Notes)

Race, Ethnicity and Christ’s Church

 ECCLESIASTES – A Life Well Lived :  18 June – 3 September

The book of Ecclesiastes captures the essence of life from man’s point of view but more importantly, God’s. It confronts us with the meaning of life and more specifically with tremendously practical issues such as the purpose of money, living righteously in a chaotic world and staying poised in our faith toward God when doing the right thing isn’t rewarded by the world and how to live without constant regrets. You are invited to join the Adult Fellowship Hall class as Sean Kyzar leads us through this DVD study from Tommy Nelson ministries.


Pastor Hank is offering an Adult Inquiry Class for those wishing to become members of Resurrection Lutheran Church.  New families are given priority to this class, but all are welcome!  This class is designed to cover basic Christian concepts.  The class is held in Room 133.  Please contact Pastor Hank or the Church Office for more information.
