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.

Stewardship Drive, “Rediscover Macedonia”
Each year, our congregation makes an intentional request for financial support from those who  participate in our ministries. This year’s theme for the Stewardship drive is Rediscover Macedonia. Please prayerfully reflect on what this church means to you and what this church is doing  outside these walls to better our community at large. We need all of you to achieve these goals  in the future.

Breakfast in Bethlehem is an Advent tradition at Church of the Resurrection, and an opportunity for our youngest children to experience the Christmas story.

Our service will be centered around the manger as we sing songs and listen to reflections of the Holy Family and that glorious night of Jesus’ birth. A short reception will follow the service.

Looking for Our Next Pastor

We as a church our considered in a state of “transition.” Webster’s Dictionary defines transition as follows:

1 a :passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another; b :a movement, development, or evolution from one form, stage, or style to another

We are clearly moving from one stage to another within our church family. Church leadership is confident the Holy Spirit will work through the Call Committee and provide us with a motivated and energetic pastor to continue this ministry’s growth.
