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.
Our Church Life
Each fall, our 9th grade Confirmation students prepare presentations on the Bible verse they have selected as their personal Confirmation verse. Trevor Haglin, freshman at Arrowhead High School and member of the 2017 Confirmation class, prepared this video about his verse, Psalm 119: 105: “You are a lamp for my feet and a light for my path.” This is just one of the many wonderful presentations created by our students. Join us on November 12 at noon as we confirm these wonderful young people and celebrate their faith journey.
“Living Voices of the Gospel” – Reformation Hymn Festival
Our Sanctuary Choir will be participating in a Hymn Festival in commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation on Oct. 22 at 4:00 p.m. at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Waukesha. The inspiration for the festival stems from Martin Luther’s belief that music is a living voice of the Gospel. Dr. Michael Burkhardt will be leading the festival, which will include several hymns in a variety of styles, along with inspirational readings. The event is free to attend and donations will be collected for the Hebron House of Waukesha. We hope you can join us!
Mission of the Month-Tanzania
The Greater Milwaukee Synod partners with the Meru Diocese (which is like a synod) in this country. Our offerings will go to the local hospital run by the Meru Diocese. It is starting a nursing program to meet two objectives: It will provide a career path for students in the health care industry, and also provide nurses to work at the hospital. The proposed program would be similar to a diploma program in the U.S.
Several members met this last Saturday to make quilts and knit hats for those in need.
Looking for our Next Pastor
We are in the process of interviewing candidates for our new pastor.
