United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of The Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through UTO, men, women, and children nurture the habit of giving daily thanks to God. These prayers of thanksgiving start when we recognize and name our many daily blessings. Those who participate in UTO discover that thankfulness leads to generosity. Soon you will see boxes or envelopes showing up at the front of the church. If you would like to participate in the UTO please take one home. Bring back your offering October 15th and your Diocesan Convention Representatives will present the offering when they attend the convention, in the name of Resurrection.
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.
During the weekend of October 1st and 2nd members of Resurrection held a “Gleaning of the Apples” and managed to harvest 2,566 pounds of apples, which they delivered to Second Harvest Good Bank. Way to go Resurrection!
With so many new faces at our church, it is easy for people to miss out on important information or events taking place. And we wouldn’t want that to happen.
If you joined our church after 2014, if you address, email or phone number has changed, or if you simply feel like events are taking place that you aren’t aware of, it is probably time for you to contact the office and update your information.
Take comfort in knowing you information is not sold to outside sources, it is not stored online, and your information will not be published in our directory without your permission.
To update your information or simply make sure everything is up to date, please contact the office via… Continue reading

As you may recall, in 2014 the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection was honored at the Diocesan Convention with receiving the John Shepherd Award. Our Garden Master, Tim Lape was assigned the task of deciding how that grant would be used. Tim and his crew of hard working gardeners decided to use some of the grant to lay water pipes to all the trees in the orchard, run additional water lines in the trenches alongside the driving path, and to spray our apples trees to prevent codling moths. Tim says the grant money which remains has been set aside to build handicap accessible boxes next season.
