Special Guest this Weekend – Immigration and Justice

Linda Hartke, President and CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services will join us for a mission moment this weekend, Sunday, February 22, at the 9:15 and 11:45 services.  She will also be doing a presentation during the Sunday School hour. The Bible calls us to love and serve our neighbors, but what does that mean in the context of immigration?  How have Lutherans engaged in acts of mercy and work for justice?  Together we will look at examples of migration, and explore what is happening today at home and around the world.  Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, celebrating 75 years of ministry with newcomers, offers us ways to learn and make a difference.  www.lirs.org

Lent Services

How many people say Lent is their favorite time of the church year?  At LCR, many do! Our faith-building Wednesday services add so much to our spiritual growth. Please join us. Each Wednesday at 7:00 pm.

Each Wednesday prior to worship we will have a simple soup and sandwich supper, beginning at 6:00 pm on February 25 and each Wednesday until Easter. There is a sign up if you wish to bring something – but there is no obligation.  Just come and enjoy a communal meal. Coming together!

By popular demand we will be returning to the beloved Holden Evening Prayer liturgy including time and space for candle lighting. Weekly messages will be offered by LCR members and be based on resources from Faith Inkubators (the provider of some of our Catechism curriculum). The messages will take a variety of forms including spoken word, bible study, faith stories, small group conversation, and perhaps a skit or drama.

LCR Contemplative Community

You might not think you would find a place to practice mindful meditation, spiritual yoga, tai-chi and contemplative worship in Anderson Township. Lutheran Church of the Resurrection offers this and more. “Many people are searching to alternate ways to deepen their relationship with the Divine or take up a spiritual practice”, offered Martha Newfield, lay leader at LCR. “We have a variety of practices to help that process.”
  • On the 3rd Saturday of each month, the Contemplative Practice and Study group meets. In addition to contemplative prayer practice, they discuss books, such as those by Richard Rohr and others that give added insight.
  • On the 2nd Tuesday of each month, LCR holds a Contemplative Candlelight Service. Held in a circular space in the church, worship includes meditation, prayer, readings, music or chanting. Each service is unique.
  • Every Wednesday from 6-7:30 pm, Sarah Pritts, M.D. leads Christian Yoga. Participants are encouraged to see yoga as a way of connecting with the spiritual. A $5 donation for charity is asked.
  • Mindfulness Meditation occurs every Thursday evening from 6:30-7:30 pm. Led by Gretchen Genung, MEd, CHES, the practice includes Tai-Chi and meditation. Free-no charge.
