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.

Our New Pastor’s Installation
Sunday, Feb. 25, 9 am

We are incredibly excited to announce that the Rev. Kimberly Jordan is our new pastor! She has bachelor of arts degrees in dramatic arts and elementary education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a master of divinity degree from Luther Seminary in St Paul, Minnesota. She will be installed in our church on Sunday, Feb. 25 during a single service at 9 am. A brunch will follow the service. Join us as we celebrate the start of this new chapter in our church life!

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.

SOPHIA Movie Night
Monday, Feb. 26, 6:30 pm

Join SOPHIA, Church of the Resurrection’s social justice group, as we see and talk about the movie “Halfway.” “Halfway” is the fictional story of a recently released convict (played by Quinton Aaron, best known for his role in “The Blind Side”) who faces the prospect of enduring ties with his old gang world. At the same time, he is struggling to adapt to a life on probation as the only black man in a rural white Wisconsin farm town. The film’s subject, Byron, finds himself halfway between childhood and assuming the full responsibilities of adult life, just as he is halfway between prison and freedom and, perhaps, only halfway to being considered a full human being.

Beer & Hymns
Sunday, March 4, 4 p.m.
Church of the Resurrection in Pewaukee and Christ the King Lutheran Church in Delafield present Beer & Hymns, which is designed to bring together people who like the idea of singing old-school hymns in a casual environment while enjoying a beer, soda or bite to eat. Beer & Hymns isn’t a church service and won’t include preaching or proselytizing. Instead, it’s just a good old-fashioned singalong in an all-inclusive space for people from all walks of life. All are welcome, including families. Beer Snobs Ale & Eats is located at 122 Cottonwood Ave in Hartland. Advance registration for Beer and Hymns is not required.
