Welcome to Resurrection Lunch
Sundays, Noon to 1:30 PM
3 times a year guests who’ve worshiped with us are invited to come for a light lunch and discover more about Resurrection Lutheran Church and our ministries. The staff introduce themselves, share a little about RLC history, talk about what the church is doing and where God is leading us. This time also allows us to connect with each other and a chance to know a little more about you and your family. Children are welcome. Childcare is also provided after the luncheon.

Welcome to the Family Weekend
After each Discover Resurrection class a weekend is set aside for welcoming families into the RLC family. In Worship each family is received with a brief Rite of Confession and singing ‘Welcome to the Family’.
