Holy Communion Outdoors on the Day of Pentecost
Join us this Sunday, June 13 at 9:30 am in our outdoor nave and sanctuary on the parsonage side of the church for our weekly celebration of Holy Communion.
Communion is offered in both kinds using our usual baked bread and then wine being poured from a special chalice into the container you bring from home. You may want to bring your own lawn chairs or blankets. Feel free also to stay after worship for socializing and conversation.
Garden Blessing This Sunday
This Sunday, at the conclusion of our worship outdoors, we will offer prayer seeking God’s blessing on our community garden, our garden’s caretakers, and those who will benefit from its produce. Join us!
Collection of Food Items for AFAC, Sunday, June 6
We will receive donations of food items for AFAC on Sunday, June 20 in conjunction with our outdoor worship service on the parsonage side of the church.
"Simply Giving" To Meet Current Needs
It’s been more than a year since we’ve been together for our usual indoor worship services, and it’s not surprising that our separation during the public health emergency has had an impact on the offerings received to support the church’s programs and ministries. But it’s concerning that our giving is nearly $28,000 less than it was at this time last year – and the church has already needed to draw on its reserve funds to meet basic operating expenses. Looking forward to returning to regular services, we can also expect the church’s expenses to return to their higher operating level, too.
Our Generosity at Work
We recently received letters of thanks from the following non-profit organizations whom we at Resurrection Church support financially under the guidance of our Social Ministry Committee:
- National Capital Treatment and Recovery (addiction recovery)
- Choice. Respect. Independence. (Quality of life programs for persons with special needs)

Caroline Furnace Updates
Caroline Furnace is planning to open this summer for campers of all ages. Governor Northam’s staff is working with overnight summer camps in Virginia so that they will have every opportunity to be open this summer. Traditional summer camp sessions are available for kids from those entering first grade through high school. Family Camp opportunities are available each weekend.
2020 was a rough year for all of our outdoor ministries, but Caroline Furnace has made it through and is positioned to thrive this year and beyond. Click here to see the Caroline Furnace Annual Report.
