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. Occasionally, we offer summer Bible study opportunities. 


Adult Christian Education

The Poet Speaks With God

People of faith have expressed themselves to God through poetry for many centuries. We have all enjoyed and have found both comfort and inspiration in the psalms of David. This study will examine poems by four men who were deeply devout followers of Christ and will trace the connections that each poem has with Scripture. Edward Taylor, John Donne, John Milton, and Gerard Manley Hopkins are regarded today as four truly outstanding poets.

Come join us on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am in the Fellowship Hall from July 10-August 28 as we explore beautiful poems in which, like King David, these men express the concerns, joys, fears, frustrations, and hopes they experienced in their walk with God.

Questions? Contact Larry Cameron or the church office (919-851-7248,  ).

Tuesday Morning Bible Study and Fellowship

Dates: Ongoing, September-May
Time:
 10:30-11:30 am

Place: Fellowship Hall and Via Zoom
Leader: Pastor Jonathan Blanke, Pastor Zach Sarrault

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!
