Resurrection Lutheran Church (RLC) offers a broad array of Christian education opportunities to grow in grace, including Sunday morning education classes for adults and children, confirmation classes, mid-week Bible studies, and Vacation Bible School held in the summer.

 

Sunday Morning

RLC values Christian education, for adults and children, and considers it to be an essential part of a healthy equipping ministry. This Winter, we offer Sunday School opportunities virtually for adults and children.

Adult Christian Education

For Winter/Spring 2021, one adult Christian education class is being held via Zoom on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. This 12-week class started January 10 with the last class to be held on March 28.

This class is team led and Zoom invitations will be sent on Sunday mornings prior to class through your RCB email, after you have registered.

To register, contact the church office at  or 919-851-7248.

A Man Named Martin - Part 1: The Man

In A Man Named Martin - Part 1: The Man viewers encounter a 15th-century religious reformer from Germany who broke ranks with the Catholic Church. This Bible study is the first of a three-part series devoted to Martin Luther -- a monk whose Spirit-inspired grasp of God's justification of sinners through faith in the Savior was the cornerstone of the Protestant Reformation.

In this five-session Bible study, Luther's life and times are examined through the lens of history, religion and theology. Expanding on commentary from Rev. Gregory Seltz, Speaker for The Lutheran Hour, numerous scholars add their expertise and perspective to render an illuminating portrait of the life of this extraordinary human being.

The influence and impact of Luther's life is the stuff of serious study. As a forlorn sinner feeling lost and desperate before a stern and exacting Judge, Luther desponded of all hope for eternity. But as one who came to cling to the Spirit-delivered truths of justification by faith and the liberty believers experience by God's grace, he rebounded to become a triumphant ambassador for the Gospel.

The details of Luther's life -- his childhood with his parents Hans and Margaret, his university pursuits, his decision to become a monk, his protestation of Catholic practices, his voluminous and erudite scholastic output, his life in hiding, and his roles as husband and father -- are all considered in this study. A Man Named Martin is a fresh and explorative look at an individual who, down through the centuries, has increased in importance and vitality to the Christian church.

To this day, Luther's staunch faith and the extent of his outreach, remain a standard for Christ-centered living to believers in the 21st-century.

For Children up to 4th Grade:

We are still working through the curriculum, Simply Loved, from Group.

In the first unit, Joseph’s Story, we learn God is good no matter what… even when life’s unfair. We meet our Bible buddy, Mack the Rhino, as he shares fun facts and teaches us our memory verse, Nahum 1:7.

"The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes."

The video containing the lesson, songs, and message from our Bible buddy is available online on Sunday mornings. It will be available for a few weeks, so you can watch at home at a time that is convenient for your family and have a chance to catch up if you miss a week.




For Children, 5th-8th Grade:

We are still working through the curriculum, Connect, by Sparkhouse.

Join us as we learn about God’s big story with Becky, Todd, and friends as they explore and retell stories from the Bible. Each week, we’ll dive into the Bible to see and explore Biblical themes through animated videos and hands-on activities.

Ms. Sandy will be back on Sunday, January 17!

Join us every Sunday morning at 9:30 am via Zoom with Ms. Sandy!
An email will be sent with login instructions.

The video will be available for a few weeks, so you have a chance to catch up if you miss a week.

Come join us for Sunday School fun!
Please contact Ms. Lea at with any questions.

It is also the opportunity to be commissioned into full participation in congregational life. Confirmation promotes the lifestyle of following Jesus.

The Gospel of Mark chronicles Jesus’s journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. Along the way, the Messiah gathers a ragged band of disciples. As crowds grow and dwindle on the road to Jerusalem, only a few stick by the Suffering Savior on the road of discipleship.

God gives His Word to instruct, guide, and bless our lives. The Scripture lessons in worship offer a menu every Sunday to build up the people of God in faith and hope. We will study the lessons for the following Sunday, and as we do, we expect that this Word will enrich and edify our community prayer, faith, and servant life in Christ.

We will study the coming Sunday Scripture lessons, confident that the Spirit will be:

  • Enhancing and enriching our Sunday worship life!
  • Letting God's Word edify daily and Sunday faith life!
  • Connecting the themes of the four lessons into a tapestry!
  • Listening to the Spirit of God at work in Word and one another!
  • Building our community life together!
