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.
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
A new adult Christian education class led by Pastor Jonathan will be starting on Sunday, April 18 at 9:30 am via Zoom.
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.
Race and the Gospel
Ephesians 2:11–16 carries a unique importance regarding an issue that has plagued American churches since the conception of America itself—racism. The doubt and frustration surrounding current conversations about race and ethnicity provoke questions like, “Why do we keep bringing racism up?” “Isn’t race just a social construct?” and “Isn’t there just one race—the human race?” However, our nation has come to a turning point where many Christians can no longer ignore racial tensions or use simplistic responses to deflect from the complexity of our country’s racial problem. As those who follow Jesus, Christians have the unique opportunity to enter into—rather than shy away from—conversations about race and reconciliation in light of the hope of the gospel.
In this five-part series, pastors Bryan Loritts and Matt Chandler use Paul’s words in Ephesians to address race, racism, and injustice. Through teaching and honest dialogues, Bryan and Matt will unpack the hard truths about America’s racial past and present and suggest a pathway forward of healing, justice, and hope for multiethnic harmony in the church.
They are also available in the church office.

This year, Confirmation is designed for families of 7th-8th grade students. Young people at this stage learn, develop, and take ownership the professions of their faith. It is also the opportunity to be commissioned into full participation in congregational life. Confirmation promotes the lifestyle of following Jesus.

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!
This is the Church
Pastor Jonathan is offering an introduction/review of the main doctrines of the Christian faith, starting on Wednesday, February 10 at 7:30 pm, entitled "This Is the Church." The focus of the class will be on the core doctrines of the Christian faith (including the Ten Commandments, Apostles' Creed, Lord's Prayer, Holy Baptism, Confession, and the Lord's Supper), understanding how/why they occur in our worship life and what makes Christianity different from all other world religions.
Textbooks will be the Bible and Luther's Small Catechism. Be prepared for a class that will go no longer than one hour and will be accessible via Zoom. Both newcomers and veterans of the faith are welcome to take part! To sign up, contact Pastor Jonathan at
The Book of Ephesians
Has it ever “dawned on you” that nothing has ever dawned on God? He knew before the world began that His people would face hardship, so He gave us His Word. The Book of Ephesians is a survival manual — it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. Paul the Apostle writes to encourage believers to live well — we've been lifted from the graveyard of sin and called to shout the gospel into the darkened world.
We will gather after our mid-week Lenten services from 7:30-8:30 pm for 10 Wednesday evenings starting with February 24 and ending on April 28. This class will be led by Mindy Stephani via Zoom. There is no cost and free study guides are available. To register for the class or to request study guides, contact the church office at
