Greetings Resurrection Blue Springs,

Happy New Year! We’re looking forward to the start of a New Year with a new sermon series and new worship times. With our city coming together to celebrate the Chiefs AFC West victory and their exciting season, this seemed the perfect time to both, support our team, and search for faith lessons in the sport of football. In Lessons from Football for the Game of Life, we’ll look at teamwork, lessons from winning coaches, the power of the crowd, the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Each week there will be interviews with former players and coaches.

If you’re not a Chiefs fan, we’ll let you wear your favorite jersey and if you’re not a big football fan that’s ok too, because this series is primarily about life and faith. This Sunday in worship we'll focus on the disciplines of winning.

We’ll also be starting our new worship times.

Don’t forget that our 9 am service is moving to 9:30 and the 10:45 is moving to 11 am. Our hope is that some of our 10:45 am regulars will move to 9:30 am to create more space for our first time guests in what has traditionally been our most popular service time. It’s going to be an exciting time around Kansas City as the Chiefs make a run for the Super Bowl and an exciting time for us as a church. Invite others to worship with us by sharing the preview of this new sermon series. We'll also be sharing in Holy Communion at both worship services this Sunday.

You might also be interested to join a fun panel discussion with former Chiefs football players Trent Green and Kevin Lockett. They will be sharing how they live out their faith and the lessons they learned while playing professional football on Wednesday, January 9, in the Foundry Hall at Resurrection Leawood. Let them know you're coming by filling out this form.

I look forward to this new season with you. Have a great Friday!

Grace and Peace,


Penny Ellwood
