The Core Values of Resurrection Lutheran Church & School are …

Bible Centered Preaching and Teaching

God speaks to all people through His living Word, so Resurrection stresses constant contact with that Word as essential for growth and maturity in our faith-lives and the lives of others, facilitating our transformation toward “Christ-likeness”

Generosity of Time, Talents and Money

By His Spirit, God’s people are moved to respond to His love in Christ by offering our lives, and in particular our time, abilities and financial resources, to the expansion of the Kingdom.

Financial Responsibility

Through God’s Word we understand that we own nothing – all we are and have is a gift of His loving care.  God makes people His stewards  (managers) of His gifts and world – and thus we are to use all His gifts a responsible, God-pleasing manner.

Strong Families

The family is a foundational unit of both the Church and society – and strong families make for strong churches and a more just society.  Resurrection seeks to help families be reflectors of God’s love, mercy and grace.

 Child and Youth Ministry

Children and youth are not only the Church of tomorrow, but also an integral part of the Church today.  Thus a primary ministry at Resurrection is aimed to help children and youth grow and mature in their Christian faith and fellowship, so that they are comfor-table living and sharing their faith in Christ.


RLCS’ Vision:

Our Vision is to be an inclusive gathering of God’s people, and a growing reflection of Jesus Christ, equipping disciples in a mission of intentionally impacting our community by a ministry of sharing Jesus and loving service, supporting the spiritual growth of all.
