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. We offer Sunday School opportunities for adults and children from 9:30-10:30 am, September through May.


Adult Christian Education

Path To The Cross

Thy Kingdom Come. Thy Will Be Done. God's story continues in this Faith Lessons with Ray Vander Laan with the intense devotion of his people. Discover how their passionate faith prepares the way for Jesus and his ultimate act of obedience and sacrifice at the cross. Then, be challenged in your own life to live as they did — by every word that comes from the mouth of God.

Join us beginning March 20 from 10:45-11:45 am in the Fellowship Hall, led by Mindy Stephani!


Nurturing Your Faith

What has God called you to do? Well, we’ve been called by God to live out our faith in this world. But what does that look like? This is a question all Christians struggle with throughout our faith lives. How does my faith grow? How do I live out my faith?

In this upcoming Bible study, we will take a deeper look at how God continues to work in our lives and encourages us to participate with Him in His gifts. As we have been called by God to live in a relationship with Him, we also follow His guidance in how to live out that faith through forgiveness and prayer, two actions that we see Jesus take part in throughout His ministry.

Join us beginning March 27 from 9:30-10:30 am in the Fellowship Hall, for this fun and strengthening study team led by Pastors Jonathan, Zach, and Alan!

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!

Confirmation

Youth Confirmation at RLC is a 2-year program that traditionally begins ("Confirmation 1") at Grade 7 and finishes at the end of Grade 8 ("Confirmation 2").  After a pandemic year, we recognize that some flexibility in grade levels as young people enter this structured faith formation process is warranted - thus our rebranding each class "Confirmation 1" and "2."

If you are interested in Confirmation, please reach out to Pastor Jonathan at  .
