How quickly could you locate important personal information and documents if an emergency occurred?
Do your loved ones know where to find your personal and financial records if something were to happen to you?
Is it a challenge for you to find essential documents when needed because they are stored in different locations or you’ve forgotten where you put them?
This 3-session class is designed for all ages so that you can take important steps to getting your personal information organized. You’ll receive a Binder for Life and we’ll help you with a plan to compile all your critical information and documents in one place. We’ll help you determine what you need and why you need it.
Each class will cover key areas and you’ll start building your Binder For Life so you and your loved ones are prepared for unexpected events, medical emergencies and end-of-life matters. Please invite your non-Resurrection friend or family member.
$15 due at time of registration.

Flourish furnishes hope to those in need by collecting, preparing and distributing donated furnishings and home essentials, transforming the lives of program participants, donors and servants into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. We seek to offer a 'hand up' by meeting the household furnishings needs in Kansas City's urban and suburban communities through donated resources.
Resurrection's Furnishings Ministry seeks to ensure that no child or adult has to live in a home without adequate furniture, and to lead the effort in recycling usable household furnishings.
Please visit the furnishings ministry page for details about all of the available volunteer opportunities.

I’ve lived in Kansas for a little over a year, having spent most of my life in Arizona. I desperately miss the mountains and the people who shaped my ministry and my faith. Other than that, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Midwest and our little corner of Kansas. Do you have any idea that fall is incredibly gorgeous!?
I graduated from Arizona State University in 1995 with a Bachelor of Social Work degree. Upon entering college, my plan was to work for child protective services. Little did I know that God had much different plans for me. In 1994, after wrestling with God, I accepted my call to ministry, entered the ministerial candidacy process and headed off to Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University (yep… that’s where Pastor Adam attended seminary a few years before me). I graduated from Perkins with a Master of Divinity degree in 1999 and got married that same summer. My husband and I had 3 fabulous kids together.I was ordained an Elder in the United Methodist Church in 2001 and served at St. Paul’s UMC in Tucson for 14 years, then at Santa Cruz Valley United Methodist in Sahuarita, Arizona, for 4 years.
In 2013, my marriage started falling apart. I attended Leadership Institute that year as broken and shattered as I’ve ever been. In the opening session, Pastor Adam asked us to turn to our neighbors and introduce ourselves. I introduced myself to a woman whose name I don’t remember, and to a man who was, at the time, serving on the Missions staff, Jonathan Bell.
My marriage ended in divorce in 2015. The lessons I absorbed during my divorce were invaluable and shaped how I view the world today. I am an infinitely better pastor than I was 5 years ago because of the ways God made me better & not bitter (to quote Darryl Burton). Maybe you’ve had a similar experience?
In 2015, I attended Leadership Institute for the fifth time. As God would have it, I reconnected with Jonathan Bell, who until that time I had spoken to for a grand total of 2 minutes. We fell hopelessly and hopefully in love and were married at Church of the Resurrection on July 1, 2017. We have a combined 6 children and one dog. His sister lives with us full time. Our life is overwhelmingly beautiful. I didn’t know that life could be this good.
