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

On Palm Sunday, our children led us in a joyful processional.

Transition Team Update
Our Transition Team has been busy working with Interim Senior Pastor Paula Harris to look at who we are as a church and who we want to be. We hosted five Cottage Meetings in the month of February 2017 during which we met with small groups of members to have honest discussions about our church’s ministries, strengths and weaknesses. We are now using that feedback to put together a plan for our church’s continued ministry.

While we are in transition, our congregation has approved a financial stability plan that will enable us to continue supporting our ministries. Read the feedback from the Cottage Meetings and view a Q&A updated April 2017.

A Community Presence
In March 2017, Church of the Resurrection’s adult choir joined the Carroll University Chamber Singers and several other area choirs to present a cantata, “The Seven Last Words of Christ” by Theodore Dubois. In sharing the dramatic story of our Lord and Savior, the group raised more than $2,600 for the Hope Center in Waukesha.
