In care for one another, we are following protocols and mandates on masking, physical distancing, and reopening. We do not yet have a set date for physically reopening the church building. However, the church is always active, as God is always among us. Check out this webpage, and contact us with any questions.
All are invited to our online Family Fun Camp (VBS) the week of August 31st . Our theme is “Jesus Makes me a Happy Camper!” Links to song, Bible thought, stories, crafts, environmental activities, and making family meals, and treats will be provided 3 times during the week for viewing at any time. Register here at https://familyfuncamp.app.rsvpify.com/.
Family Fun Camp staff will be at church from 10:00-6:00 Saturday August 29th and Sunday August 30 socially distanced and masked, to get greet you and give out supplies. First 24 who registrants get a backpack full of fun camping things.
Family Fun Camp is free to all
We worship at 10:00 on Sunday mornings, and Wednesday Vespers from 7:00-7:20. Morning prayer service is also available. To join livestream Sunday and Wednesday worship join in one of two ways. Facebook-Resurrection Lutheran Tacoma; Youtube Resurrection Lutheran ELCA.
Click the online worship tap above for links to all our past worship services at any time. A link to live-stream worship will be coming soon. Keep checking back for details.
Our worship services are liturgically relaxed. We follow the church year as a way of immersing ourselves in the ways and teachings of Christ and sing music from across time and across the globe. Our dedicated and energetic Worship Team leads us in song. We joyfully baptize infants, children, and adults into the faith, and celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion on a weekly basis.
We are a Reconciling in Christ Congregation. As such, we uphold the words of the Apostle Paul: “In Christ, there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female.” (Galatians 3:28) Christ has made us all one. We believe that this oneness extends to all persons regardless of gender identity, race, color, creed, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identities, or religious, economic, or political affiliation.
All are Welcome!
