Church of the Resurrection

Serving Lutherans in the Lake Country area

Church of the Resurrection, a Lutheran church in Pewaukee near Hartland, is a congregation in the tradition of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We invite all to worship with us. Many of our members come from Hartland, Pewaukee, Delafield, Waukesha and other communities in the Lake Country area. Our mission:

  • Welcoming all people to share God’s love
  • Experiencing what it means to follow Christ
  • Empowering each other to serve our neighbors near and far.

We share God’s love through our worship, music and fellowship with one another. We learn what it means to follow Christ through Sunday school, confirmation and youth ministry for children, and Bible study for adults. And we serve our community through outreach programs, service projects and support for missions both local and international.

Join us for Holy Week!

Lenten Worship, Wednesdays, 7 pm

We know that Christ’s death and resurrection ultimately reconcile us to God, restoring our relationship to the one God longs to have with his people. But God has also provided us with a set of rules for life meant to guard and protect these important relationships, so that they may be enjoyed as God intends.

We know these life rules as the Ten Commandments. Please join us at Lenten worship on Wednesdays. Each week, we’ll explore two of the Commandments. We’ll discover that the Commandments are not rules intended to spoil our fun or cramp our styles. Rather, they’re instructions from the One who created us and knows us best—instructions for living in right relationship with God and with each other—instructions that will lead us to the life God created us for.

Christian Education Scholarships 

Thank you to the many members who have supported our efforts for providing scholarship assistance to our youth. This year, we were able to sell 310 kringles in our annual Christmas kringle sale, which resulted in more than $1,200 for the scholarship fund. This money will benefit youth in our church who are interested in attending Christian-based colleges.
