We believe God has strategically and intentionally placed Resurrection Church in the Commonwealth Avenue corridor to be a lighthouse for Him. We genuinely love our neighborhood and long to be a blessing within it. The following is a list of some of our larger outreaches into the community.
Commonwealth Food Pantry - Jesus said, “I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat… I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me” (Matthew 25:35, 40).
Embodying Jesus’ heart for the poor and responding to an expressed need in our neighborhood, Resurrection Church opened the Commonwealth Food Pantry on January 1, 2010. The pantry is stocked with donations by members of our church and serves clients by referral only. Our desire is to build relationships with the families we serve as we offer them both food for their bodies and Jesus, the Bread of Life. For more information about the Commonwealth Food Pantry, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Neighborhood Kidz Clubz - Resurrection Church reaches out to boys and girls from our surrounding community (many of whom are refugees from foreign lands) through our weekly Resurrection Kidz Clubz. These clubs present the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ in a setting of fun and fellowship. You can find more information about our Clubz here.
Prayer Walking - At Resurrection Church we have experienced the truth of the adage, “Prayer changes things.” Our Prayer Walking ministry gives feet to our prayers in a literal way, as we worship and pray while we walk through our neighborhood. We pray strategically, addressing concerns presented in the news or discovered through research; and we pray prophetically, addressing those things the Lord brings to mind. For more information, please contact Marcus Barnwell at email@example.com.
Missions - While every Christian has a responsibility to respond to Jesus’ call to “go and make disciples,” we recognize that some are called to full time service in the mission field. As a result, Resurrection Church sponsors and supports missionaries from Finland to the Philippines and many places in between.
