  • Hope: Living With Confident Expectation
    Hope: Living With Confident Expectation

    The message of Easter is hope, but where do we find hope when our world is turned upside down? What do we hold on to when we’re worried about our health, our families, our jobs? What can we count on in the face of uncertainty, isolation, fear and even death? Join Church of the Resurrection as we look for HOPE in challenging times in this 5-week sermon series.

    This resource contains the weekly sermons as well as supporting video teaching and discussion guides written for adults, students, and children for group or individual study.

  • 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.

    Incarnation

    A baby is born in a stable in the backwater town of Bethlehem. His parents gave him the name Jesus. But the prophets, the shepherds, the wise men and angels addressed him by other names - titles really. He was the Messiah, the Lord, the Savior, Emmanuel, the Word made Flesh and the Light of the World. 

    In this sermon series, which includes the 4 weeks of Advent, Candlelight Christmas Eve and the week after Christmas, Rev. Adam Hamilton will explore the meaning of these titles and what they tell us about the child whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.

    The Royal Titles: MESSIAH and LORD
    The Deliverer: SAVIOR
    The Incarnation: EMMANUEL
    The Messenger: WORD
    The Revealer: LIGHT OF THE WORLD

    Mt. Gerazim is located in the northern West Bank, approximately 30 milies north of Jerusalem. It is the site of Joseph's tomb and Jacob's well. This well has been associated with Jacob for more than 2,000 years, even though the well is not specifically mentioned in the Old Testament. This is where the Gospel of John tells of Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman.

    The Jordan River connects the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea. This resource includes footage of the river near Qasr-El-Yehud, on the western bank about 10km east of Jericho, traditionally held to be the site where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. This is also believed to be the place where the Children of Israel crossed the Jordan and entered the Promised Land after their 40 years of wandering in the desert. Elijah's ascension to heaven in a fiery chariot after he and Elisa crossed the Jordan is also attributed to this site.
