Vivid Description

Resurrection is continually discovering and acting on God's purpose. Recognizing our gifts, our mission is to be a spirit-filled congregation, actively spreading the Gospel, and serving God through service to our community. What that means is that we are a responsive and joyful church where Jesus is Lord. We share our resources in the community, with the community, and with each other. We strive to be a church that is so meaningful and so relevant that each generation finds itself constantly recharged, and desires to serve and share their talents. We celebrate what has been achieved, and know that the future is even more exciting!
