We worship at 10:00 on Sunday mornings, and Wednesday Vespers from 7:00-7:20.  In our time of physical distancing, both worship services are live-streamed to our public Facebook page, Resurrection Lutheran Tacoma, and to You-Tube, Resurrection Lutheran ELCA.


We worship at 10:00 on Sunday mornings, and gather for Wednesday Vespers from 7:00-7:20.  In this time of physical distancing, both worship services are live-streamed to our Public Facebook page,

and to You-Tube, Resurrection Lutheran ELCA.

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!


We grow in the grace given in Chris and his call to service through the following:

Regular Worship;

A Monday morning 11:00 Bible Study offered when we are not physically distanced;

A younger person’s Faith Conversation offered via Zoom on Thursday nights at 6:30; and in non-quarantine times;

A choir for children offered in non-quarantine time;

A choir for High Schoolers-adults offered in non-quarantine times

Events featuring speakers on a variety of topics related to Christian growth and outreach;

Energetic and Open Fellowship after non-quarantine worship and outside of the church.


In this time of physical distancing, we are collecting food for the Food Bank in a Bin located right outside the front doors of the church. Food is delivered to the Food Bank on a weekly basis.  In the quarantine, our church office is open from 10-2 on Mondays and Thursdays.  Congregationally-made masks are available to take in the Fellowship Hall, along with patterns and materials for making them.

Outside of quarantine, we provide Bags for the Homeless, Support NorthEast Tacoma Healthy Kids Coalition, Make Quilts for people around the world through ELCA World Hunger; Collect Food For the Food Bank; Support the Ministry Peace Lutheran, Tacoma, does for people who need Shelter and Food; participate in our ELCA’s “God’s Work; Our Hands” outreach once a year; and in August, offer a week long “Family Fun Camp” (or VBS) for the community.

Please all the church office at 253-927-3301 or contact Pastor Karen at pastor@resurrectionlutheranchurchtacoma.org with any questions.  All are welcome!
