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 Church Life

We had a fabulous week at Mighty Fortress Vacation Bible School in June! Here, the children are singing “I Will Sing of the Mercies,” arranged by Robby Robinson.

SOPHIA Discussion

June 26, 7 p.m., Beer Snobs, 122 Cottonwood Avenue in Hartland

Join SOPHIA, Church of the Resurrection’s social justice group, for a discussion of Matthew Desmond’s book “Evicted: City Poverty and Profit in the American City.”

The 2017 Pulitzer Prize-winning book written by Harvard sociologist Matthew Desmond takes readers into the poorest neighbor hoods of Milwaukee, where families spend most of their income on housing and where eviction has become routine. The book follows eight families as they struggle to keep a roof over their heads, showing how a lack of stable shelter traps families in poverty and destroys lives meant for better things. Based on years of embedded fieldwork and painstakingly gathered data, “Evicted” transforms our understanding of extreme poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving a devastating, uniquely American problem.

Books are available in the church office. If you don’t have time to read the book but are interested, please come and join the discussion anyway.

Listening Session

Join us as we talk with Bishop Paul Erickson about our questions and concerns about the transition our congregation is currently undergoing.

Church of the Resurrection Playdate
Friday, June 30, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
Come enjoy the summer with some of the young families at Church of the Resurrection! We’ve started meeting for a monthly, informal playdates at parks or members’ homes. This month, depending upon weather, we will either be meeting at a park or at Kayla Larson’s house in Oconomowoc. Text Kayla at (612) 296-1083 or e-mail her at to confirm the location. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other Christian parents … and to give our children a chance to get to know each other!

Transition Team Update
Our Transition Team has been busy working with Interim Senior Pastor Paula Harris to gather the information we need to complete our Ministry Site Profile. In the first half of the summer, we are tackling several projects that help us determine how we fit into each other’s lives and into our community. We hope to form a call committee by the end of summer 2017 that will begin the search for a new senior pastor. View a Q&A updated May 25, 2017 and view the congregational questions which are being distributed in church at the end of June.
