Serve the World
Resurrection is a congregation that values our partnership and connection with ministries that reach far beyond our immediate neighborhoods into communities across the country and across the world. RLC disciples have participated in Katrina recovery and repaired homes in Trinidad and Puerto Rico, and funded a block of new homes in Haiti. Our youth have experienced mission service trips to Native American reservations and inner-city Chicago. We are strong partners with the global ministries of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, embracing the mission of both the church at large and every individual disciple of Jesus to be an agent of healing, reconciliation and redemption in the world. The examples below and the accompanying links describe just a few of the examples of Resurrection’s faith in action in the world:
