• Foreword
    Foreword
    FOREWORD is a four-week introductory study, created especially for use at Church of the Resurrection, meant to help new small groups get to know each other and to lay the groundwork for the group’s future. Each lesson is structured in a way that has worked well for many small groups. While this resource was created for use at a particular church, it is easily changed to apply to your specific situation.

  • Freed-2-Lead
    Freed-2-Lead

    The church needs leaders rooted in Christ, who have a vision for changing the world. Today’s young people have fearless hearts, vibrant ideas and a passion for ministry. Their talents should be nurtured to shape the church’s path into the future. The church must invite young people – including women and people of color the world over – into ministry, equip them to be effective leaders and be open to where they want to lead us. We also must strengthen lay persons, who are ministering at every level of the church.

  • Gospel of the Nobodies
    Gospel of the Nobodies

    Most of us have at some point felt like a nobody – insignificant, invisible, worthless. The Gospel of Luke is a first century portrait of Jesus with a particular focus on his ministry with those who were considered nobodies. For Lent, join us as we read through the Gospel of Luke together. Each week, we’ll turn our attention to specific stories that illustrate Jesus’ concern for those who were marginalized by society, and as we do, we’ll hear his word for our lives today. You will find here all the series resources that were produced, along with the weekly sermons. Use these resources to share “The Gospel of the Nobodies.”

  • Half Truths
    Half Truths

    They are simple phrases. They sound Christian – like something you might even find in the Bible:

    • Everything happens for a reason
    • God helps those who help themselves
    • God won’t give you more than you can handle
    • Love the sinner, hate the sin
    • God said it, I believe it, that settles it

    We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth – yet they also miss the point in very important ways. This five week sermon series breaks down these half-truths. You will find here all the series resources that were produced, along with the weekly sermons.

  • How Will You Measure Your Life
    How Will You Measure Your Life

    In the final class of each semester, Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christenson asks his
    students how they will apply the theories of business and organizations to their own lives to
    ensure that:

    • they are happy and successful in their careers
    • their relationships are an enduring source of happiness
    • they live lives of integrity

    Those discussions led to his best-selling book, “How Will You Measure Your Life?” This sermon
    series from Church of the Resurrection explores this same question. Drawing from scriptural teaching, it looks
    at how what we choose and value has far greater impact on our lives than what we achieve and
    acquire. You will find here all the series resources that were produced, along with the weekly sermons.
