Being Resurrection for Our Community

Lutheran Christians understand the church as a dynamic organism rather than a static place. Resurrection gathers together at the corner of Stop 11 and Meridian School Roads in order to be released back into the world, to be salt, light, and leaven. Many Resurrection disciples contribute their time and talents to countless organizations, public service agencies and ministries on the south side and greater Indianapolis community.

Our recent decision to remain in this location has re-affirmed our intention to be a beacon of vitality and transformation in our surrounding community. Blessed to be a blessing, we will utilize our expanded ministry facilities as a center and launching pad to serve others in the name of Christ. The following are just a few examples of some of the opportunities for service in the community that many of us are involved with at Resurrection.
