    Our theme, Jesus & Me, was based on the books Wonder, Auggie & Me and 365 Days of Wonder written by R.J. Palacio.  If you haven’t had a chance to read them, we encourage you to do so!  She has also written a book for younger readers titled We’re All Wonders.  These books inspired a move to Choose Kind, teaching empathy, compassion and acceptance.  In the story, the children learn from a favorite teacher about precepts (rules for very important things, mottos, famous quotes and things to help motivate and guide us).  We decided to take the week of VBC to teach our kids three precepts:
        
    Precept 1:
    You should treat people in the same way that you want people to treat you.  Matthew 7:12

    Precept 2:
    “I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”  Psalm 139:14

    Precept 3:
    Do all the good you can,
    By all the means you can,
    In all the ways you can,
    In all the places you can,
    At all the times you can,
    To all the people you can,
    As long as you ever can.
        -Commonly known as John Wesley’s Rule

  • Visitor Connection and Follow Up
    Visitor Connection and Follow Up

    Helping visitors feel welcomed and cared for is a high value at Church of the Resurrection. We are committed to making our follow-up processes as light and non-invasive as possible (while still being committed to following up).  We recognize the courage it takes for someone to come to church for the first time, and so we try to be sensitive, walking that fine line between following-up and something that feels more like stalking.  In this resource you will find the processes we use to follow up as well as the "why" behind them.

  • Volunteer Management Practices
    Volunteer Management Practices

    The Volunteer Management Practices (VMP) Resource presents a framework of four practices critical for those who desire to lead/manage volunteers successfully. Intentional focus on these four practices – invite, connect, equip, and sustain – will prepare volunteers to have maximum impact in their service role in an engaging and fulfilling way. The VMP resources include a full-color chart that defines and provides examples of each of the four essential practices for leading volunteers in a healthy and sustainable manner, and four videos – one for each of the practices, in which ministry leaders at Church of the Resurrection describe real-life examples of how they live into that particular practice. These resources are excellent for use in training new leaders of volunteers, as skill refreshers for more experienced leaders, or as a reference for leaders who need a brush-up in a particular area.
