It’s that time of year again for all football lovers, where you must choose to graciously accept the fact that your team did not make it to the Super Bowl and then choose whether or not you will root on one of the participating teams.
On Sunday, February 4th, there will be two baskets in the Parish Hall. Bring your coins or bills and put them in the basket of the team you want to win the Super Bowl. All proceeds will be donated to the Spokane Valley Meals on Wheels. The winner of the Resurrection Souper Bowl will be announced in the Feb 8th Review and on Facebook.
Thank you to everyone at Resurrection who generously took an ornament off our Tree of Sharing and brought back a gift. We were able to help bring joy to 4 adults and 6 children this holiday season. You are truly a blessing to our church!
Did you ever wonder why we do all the things we do during Sunday liturgy? Ever asked: “What’s with all these candles and plates and linens?” Or: “What’s up with all these prescribed movements and prayers? And why do we say them in such a specific order?” Well, if you have, be sure to be here for Sunday worship on November 12th, when we will do an “instructed Eucharist.” During this “instructed Eucharist,” will take short breaks to give brief explanations of the rich history and theology behind all the various parts of the service. You won’t want to miss it!
Can you touch a prayer? Can you pull it close and feel its comfort? You can if it’s part of a prayer quilt. The idea behind these quilts is simple, yet powerful. A heavy thread is used to take stitches through the quilt layers, and the end s are left free to be tied with a square knot. As each knot is tied, a silent prayer if offered for someone is special need- someone who has asked us to pray for them. The quilt is then given to that person. What makes each quilt so special is not the pattern, color, or workmanship, but the fact that prayer is symbolically tied into each one.
These comforters are a statement of faith, and a testimony to… Continue reading

Would you like to host a coffee hour, but aren’t sure how complicated it is? Good news…..It’s simple! Coffee Hour hosts have a variety of options. 1. Bring in some (peanut free) goodies and leave them in the fridge for others to use for coffee hour. 2. Bring in goodies and help make coffee and setup and cleanup. You don’t even have to sign up just bring a little something (nut free) any Sunday and it doesn’t have to be big or fancy. The most important thing is to have goodies to feed those hungry Episcopalians after worship. So what are you waiting for “Feed an Episcopalian”
Our little project of used books for sale – bookshelves on wheels with a coffee can to collect the donations -has again turned those used books into gold. This past week we mailed a cashier’s check for $900.00 to Saint Matthew’s Anglican school in the little village of Pomona, Belize. Our parish has been involved in the Books for Belize project for eleven years, and we have sent a grand total of $10,819 to Anglican schools in Belize. This is a combination of money from Sunday sales, the church garage sale, a grant from our diocese, and individual contributions. The school will use it for basic needs for teaching their students and for their feeding program for 40 of their neediest students. Thank you for… Continue reading
Just a reminder, in order to keep costs down the Daughters of the King need the flower vases to be returned to the church once the flowers have passed on.
