Preparing for Easter

Our journey through Lent began with Ash Wednesday as we began preparing our hearts and minds for the Easter celebration.

Plan Your Visit

An artist begins with a blank canvas, full of possibility. Easter is like that fresh canvas, and we are God’s work of art.

Maybe it’s been a while since you’ve been to church — that’s okay. No matter where we’ve come from or how hopeless we feel, through the resurrection we can become a new creation and experience a life filled with hope and love.

Church of the Resurrection welcomes you to celebrate Easter with us and explore the possibilities of a new life.

Easter Services

Plan now to worship with us as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Sunday, April 21, at 8, 9:30 & 11:15 am.

The Lenten Journey

Our journey through Lent begins on March 6 with Ash Wednesday, as we prepare our hearts and minds for the Easter celebration. We will experience together...

  • Daily devotions and practices
  • A Wednesday night interactive class for individuals and/or small groups from 6:30–8 pm, March 13 – April 10 (download the booklet here)

Join us as we focus on “5 Essential Practices of the Christian Life: Worship, Grow, Serve, Give and Share” as part of Vision 2030: Closing the Spiritual Gap.

Serve During Easter

At our Easter services, we will welcome many first-time guests to Resurrection Blue Springs, and we want to make sure they have an incredible, welcoming experience from the moment they pull in the parking lot. We need you to help us make this a reality. Take a look at the ways you can serve on Easter at the link below.

Easter Offering Grant

In the spirit of Easter hope, our weekend worship offering will support Church of the Resurrection’s annual Community Transformation Award. Two grants, totaling $100,000, will fund community projects to provide education, counseling, treatment, and resources aimed at suicide prevention along with other services for individuals and families dealing with loss from suicide.

An $80,000 grant will further catalyze the initiatives developed by a coalition of six school districts in Johnson County in conjunction with the Johnson County Mental Health Center. Funds will support community mobilization, student-led initiatives, training and resources aimed at prevention, anti-bullying, removing stigmas, dealing with mental health and addiction.  A second $20,000 grant will provide suicide prevention education and support resources through Resurrection’s congregational care efforts.
