New Beginnings Theme...
From Sept 12 through the end of Nov, we will be focusing on the theme “New Beginnings. We will begin with a Sunday of repentance, confession and forgiveness on September 12.
We will continue by exploring what it means to have a new mind regarding God, ourselves and our neighbors, a new heart toward God, ourselves and our neighbors, a new intimacy with the Holy Spirit bringing us closer to God, more aware of ourselves and more impactful in the lives of our neighbors, and finally to look at the new trajectory of life God has for people who have been given a new mind, new heart, new Spirit and new purpose.
Monthly Giving, July 31, 2021 Update
Sit, Stand, Walk on Bible Study on Wed Nights at 6:30pm
Through the summer, we have been gathering together for fellowship, prayer and Bible study as we have gone through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.
As we move past the book of Ephesians, we will continue meeting for the purpose of helping each other stay seated in our identity and boldly keep walking out our purpose and standing against the Enemy. Join us for fellowship, prayer and Bible study each week.

CW West Memorial
The RLC Council has voted to purchase an electronic sign for the church in honor of CW West, who gave so much of his time, talents and heart to our church. The project he talked about often in the last year of his life was this sign. There will be a name plate on the sign in recognition of his contributions.
If you would like to contribute to his memorial, there is a separate category on our online giving form. You can also send a check with "CW Memoria"l in the notation line.
10:15 am Sunday Worship is Both In-person and Online
We are worshiping in the church on Sundays and streaming worship services at 10:15am via Facebook Live.
Next Steps from Pastor Mark
We have been starting to move into more live music, coming up front for communion and having times of food fellowship. We are prayerfully moving forward into this time of fuller ministry, but continue to need prayer and discernment for what needs to come next.
New Ways to Connect in Bible Study and Worship
Bible Study: We have had a wonderful Wednesday night Bible study this summer, and want to keep it going throughout the year. As of now, we will be meeting at 6:30 for Bible Study each week.
We will be making the Bible study accessible electronically, and will be letting you know when that has been set up.
We hope to be making access to Wednesday evening Bible studies online soon.
Worship: We are looking at creating a simple worship service with Holy Communion on Wednesday nights for those who are not able to come on Sunday. This time of worship will include prayer, a message from Pastor Mark and Holy Communion.
Need Sponsors for "Sing for Joy"
Several ELCA churches in the OKC area have been sponsoring a program called “Sing for Joy” each Sunday. Resurrection has been one of those churches. “Sing for Joy” is on KUCO (FM 90.1) at 8:30 AM on Sundays, and is streamed at kucofm.com. It is from St Olaf College in Northfield, MN (one of our Lutheran Colleges) and includes wonderful music and devotional material.
Would you be able to sponsor a Sunday ($40) or maybe more than one Sunday? The goal for RLC is to provide sponsorship for 8 weeks (total of $320). Talk to Pastor Mark if you have questions, or label your donation to the church “Sing for Joy.”
Here is a link to this past Sunday’s program: https://www.stolaf.edu/singforjoy/listen/2021-08-29
