Outdoor Worship and Social Time in the Parsonage and Church Yards

On Sunday, May 9, food will be collected for AFAC between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm. Outdoor Worship begins at 12:15. Join us on the Potomac Street side of the church.

Congregational Conversation for Input: Vision Statements for Mission

At the annual congregational meeting in January, Pastor Linman presented his proposed statements of vision to guide ministry and mission at Resurrection Lutheran Church. Subsequently, the Congregation Council at its annual retreat engaged the vision statements and suggested editorial revisions such that the statements begin to articulate a shared vision for mission and ministry. Now the membership of the congregation beyond its elected leaders is invited to offer their input into these statements to nurture a still wider embrace of shared vision. Toward that end, members are invited to two occasions for conversation about these vision statements. The first occasion will take place in person, outdoors after worship (about 12:30) on Sunday, May 16. We will gather on the parsonage deck and patio for this conversation for up to an hour so that those gathered have a chance to offer their thoughts. A second occasion will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, May 19 at 7:00 pm. Watch for a link to the current vision statements document in coming announcements, along with a link for the Zoom for the May 19 session.

Ascension Day Evening Prayer via Zoom

Join us via Zoom on Thursday, May 13 at 6:30 pm for a service of Evening Prayer for the Ascension of Our Lord. A link for Zoom participation as well as a link to the bulletin for the liturgy will be included in next week’s Midweek Message – please watch for that and plan to attend on May 13.

Worship on the Vigil of Pentecost and Baptism of Axel Hedberg

Join us at the parsonage deck and patio at 5:00 pm on Saturday, May 22 for worship on the Vigil of Pentecost which will include the baptism of Axel Hedberg, infant son of Lars and Angel Hedberg.

Holy Communion Outdoors on the Day of Pentecost

Thanks be to God. After a hiatus of over a year, we will return to the celebration of Holy Communion again commencing on the Day of Pentecost, May 23, 2021 at a liturgy which will feature all of the lectionary readings and more communal singing. The starting time for this service will soon be determined and will appear in subsequent announcements. Taking place on the parsonage side of the church, the parsonage deck will serve as a chancel, the fence separating the parsonage and church yards will function as an altar rail. The church yard surrounding our garden will be the nave, the place of assembly. Communion will be offered in both kinds employing our usual baked bread and then wine being poured from a special chalice into receptacles which you will need to bring from home for Covid safety purposes. Watch for further instructions about our more complete outdoor worship services and instructions about receiving Holy Communion in a coming Midweek Message from Pastor Linman. But please plan to attend on Pentecost Sunday for this joyous return to the fullness of Christ’s presence in both Word and Sacrament.

Simply Giving Month

Resurrection usually designates each May as “Simply Giving Month” as a reminder to continue to support the church’s ministries and operations while they’re away on summer vacations. Those plans look a little different this May, of course – but it’s still critically important to continue our offerings to sustain Resurrection’s activities and outreach as we deal with the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Our congregation continues to be generous in its financial support for the church, but our giving is about $20,000 less than it was at this point last year – and the need for us to continue to help the church provide assistance to our neighbors in need has never been greater.

Even though we aren’t yet able to resume our indoor worshiping together on Sundays, we can continue to make our offerings using the “Donate” button on the Resurrection website. And we can still sign up for the “Simply Giving” automatic funds transfer program and designate an ongoing specific amount to be automatically contributed on a weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly basis. Either option allows us to designate how much we want to give to support the congregation’s general fund for salaries and expenses, for benevolences to community charities, or for maintaining the church’s facilities.

A New Worship Supplement – All Creation Sings

Our church engages in ministry and mission in a rapidly changing world. Our principal book of worship, Evangelical Lutheran Worship, was published in 2006. Both church and world have changed quite a lot in the past fifteen years. The church’s liturgical and musical resources are ever evolving. A single worship book is something like a snapshot of a point in time. Thus, there is always need for additional resources to reflect the church’s current context and theological commitments. All Creation Sings, purchased by Resurrection Church with memorial funds and a generous anonymous gift, is a new book of worship published by our church which serves to accompany and complement Evangelical Lutheran Worship. All Creation Sings includes two additional settings of Holy Communion, a Service of Word and Prayer, other prayers, thanksgivings and laments, and nearly 200 additional songs and hymns for the assembly. Members of the Worship and Music Committee are familiarizing themselves with the materials in this new supplemental book and will be planning ways to introduce its contents to the congregation in coming weeks and months.

We also encourage you to purchase your own copy of All Creation Sings along with Evangelical Lutheran Worship to assist your worship and devotion at home. Every member does well to have our church’s books of worship at home, alongside your Bibles. Resurrection Church also purchased a few extra copies of All Creation Sings beyond what we need for worship in the church. If you are interested in purchasing one of these extra copies, kindly reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Also, should you wish to experience some of the new music in All Creation Sings, Trinity Lutheran Church in Worcester, MA recently hosted a hymn festival featuring some of the hymns and songs in All Creation Sings.

People may gather for socializing anytime beginning at 11:00 am and on until we have our brief worship service at 12:15. The parsonage deck, new patio and surrounding yards will be available for persons to congregate. Claim this opportunity to connect with each other and to worship!

Reopening Planning Group Updates

The Reopening Planning Group is meeting on a monthly basis to assess where we are as a congregation with the question of worshiping and meeting again in person in doors, and all of this in relation to the varied twists and turns of the pandemic. The broad parameters of plans and protocols are in place for us to again gather indoors. What is missing at this point is the determination of the date gradually to begin again to use our building indoors. In the meantime, focus will be on expanding opportunities to gather outdoors for worship and other occasions, especially now that the weather is moderating. Watch weekly announcements for updates.

Transforming Generosity Through Your Storytelling
Thursday, April 22, 2021 from 7:00 - 8:30 PM

Stories, no matter how polished or who authored the words, transform our actions and lives. Yet we overlook or forget the power of sharing stories the moment giving or financial statements are a topic of discussion. We tend to focus on giving as a transaction rather than how stories inspire generosity, deepen faith and transform lives.

The Stewardship and Missions Table of the Metro D.C. Synod invite all rostered ministers, council members, lay leaders and stewardship chairs to a 90-minute Leadership Academy session, led by Andrew Steele, VP of Development & Outreach at LIRS and Rev. Lucille “CeCee” Mills, Associate DEM of the North Carolina Synod, during which you will:

  • Learn why sharing our stories is important and impactful
  • Practice sharing a story in a small group guided by proven methods from our speakers
  • Shift your mindset from transactional giving to the transformational joy of generosity

Social Ministry Update

  • one adult-size toothbrush in its original packaging
  • one sturdy comb

Our Benevolent Generosity at Work

We recently received letters of thanks from the following organizations which we financially support via the recommendations of our Social Ministry Committee:

  • Doorways (addressing homelessness, domestic violence and sexual assault)
  • N Street Village (housing and other support and recovery for women)

March Financial Update

The below chart is a summary of RELC’s finances for the year to date as of February 28, 2021. The columns titled “(a) YTD Giving,” “(b) YTD Expenses” and “(c) Giving minus Expenses” provide key data for our three primary financial funds.

This data shows that our general fund is currently running below our actual expenses for the year and below our giving levels for this time last year. We continue to see the negative impact of the cancellation of Sunday services on our giving.

Please continue to send in your weekly contributions which can be made through Simply Giving, by using the “Donate Now” button on RELC’s website or by sending your contribution check to the church office in the US Mail. Please also consider completing your 2021 pledge form if you haven’t already.
