Outdoor Worship and AFAC Food Collection on Sunday, February 28
Weather permitting, join us outdoors (with facial covering and maintaining strict physical distance) on February 28 at 12:15 on the Potomac Street side of the church for a brief service of worship in conjunction of the food collection for AFAC. This service includes an order for confession and forgiveness, a reading and reflection, prayers of intercession, the Lord’s Prayer and a blessing.
Midweek Lenten Series
Join us via Zoom at 7:00 pm on the Wednesday evenings during Lent for a brief worship service followed by presentations by RELC members on how their faith informs their life’s work. Additionally, each week in Lent will also feature written reflections by members on the same topic which seeks to feature the vitality of lay ministry and leadership in our congregation. This series begins on Wednesday, February 24. Look for links to the written reflections, the Zoom invitations and the service bulletins in each Tuesday’s Midweek Message.
Social Ministry Update
During Lent we will be collecting items for Personal Care Kits for Lutheran World Relief. Each kit needs the following items:
- one dark color light-weight bath-size towel (between 20"×40" & 52"×27")
- 2-3 bath-size (3-4 oz. for a total of 8-9 oz.) bars of soap, any brand in original wrapping
- one adult-size toothbrush in its original packaging
- one sturdy comb
- metal nail clippers.
You can either donate individual items or bring assembled kits. Wrap items in the towel and tie together with yarn or string. See a how-to assemble a Personal Care Kit video here OR here. Bring the items or assembled kits to Resurrection on a collection date before Sunday, April 18. We will accept your donations at any AFAC collection or outdoor service before April 18.
Any loose undesignated offerings received at in person outdoor services during Lent will be sent to A-SPAN.

Opportunity for Bible Study, Lectio Divina, and Supportive Conversation
Join us for about an hour every other Thursday morning at 11:00 am on Zoom for Bible Study, lectio divina and conversation about the upcoming Sunday’s Gospel reading.

On the alternating Thursdays, this group gathers for fellowship, checking in and supporting each other, as well as spending time discussing the reflection questions from the previous Sunday sermon.
Provided is a Home Faith Formation Calendar, updated each week with the following week’s recorded content. For those who couldn’t tune in live, see those resources available to you now. Check out too suggestive home activities, lectionary readings, and resources for racial justice for all ages.
