Fearless: A Documentary on the Holy Spirit and Evangelization
Beginning the weekend of April 22-23, this powerful documentary will be available for online viewing. We will be scheduling a viewing at our parish, in Mercy Hall, in coming weeks. For now, I encourage you to watch the trailers below. I'm confident that you'll be encouraged by what you see. God is at work. In Power! Visit their website for more details and to get access to view the entire documentary when it releases next week.
Prayerfully, in response to the Bishop's call for the Witness to Hope Capital Campaign, the Church of the Resurrection has embarked on a “combined campaign” to raise funds to invest in the ministry of our parish as well as supporting the ministry of the Diocese of Lansing. With gratitude for the generous support of the people of our parish, we are prayerfully seeking to raise $2,100,000. Of this amount, $1,569,488 will remain in our parish to fund parish projects, and the balance will support the wider Church efforts, as outlined in the general Witness to Hope campaign material. Together with the Parish Pastoral Council, Finance Council, and other lay leadership, we have determined that the following projects are of highest priority and comprise our Campaign Case for Support:
- Accessibility and enhanced safety for our two school buildings, which includes constructing a secure connection between the 2 buildings and ADA compliant access and egress: $1,200,000
- Beautification of the church sanctuary: $750,000
We are grateful for what God has been doing at the Church of the Resurrection for nearly 100 years, and are excited to see what He has in store for us as we near our Centenary as a parish. Please pray for the success of our efforts and those of the entire diocese. Thank you!
During the summer, Fr. Steve preached about the importance of reading scriptures every day. For those who would like a bit of help in taking a bit of time each day, he developed a simple "30 Day Bible Challenge" with the Letter of St. James. Since then, he also developed one for 1 Thessalonians. Click the links below for more information about how the challenges work.
