Help us offer a warm Resurrection welcome to our guests by serving with the Guest Connections team. We are always looking for smiling faces to serve in a variety of roles - both during worship times or during the week:
Weekend Connection Point: If you enjoy welcoming and helping others in an active environment, we need your warmth and enthusiasm at the Connection Point! It's not about knowing all the answers; it's about offering a caring smile, a sense of welcome and hospitality to those who walk through the church doors. (40 minutes before worship until 15 minutes after the service is over.)
Ushers: Serve during worship services welcoming guests into the worship space and assisting guests in finding seats.

Hurricane Ida made landfall in Southeast Louisiana on August 29th exactly sixteen years after Hurricane Katrina devastated the same area. Ida touched down as a category four storm and has left much of the region without power.
Reports say that it may be up to six weeks before power is returned. The positive news is that the floodwalls and levees seem to have held. First responders are doing their best to go door to door checking on people who weathered the storm. Please join us in prayer for families affected by Hurricane Ida.
Are you interested in updates about Church of the Resurrection’s Disaster Response efforts in Louisiana and possibly volunteering with clean up? Sign-up here.

Using Psalm 4:8 as the guiding mission, the Beds Program provides new beds to children who don’t have beds of their own in Kansas City urban and suburban communities. Our purpose is to recognize and address the physical need for sleep, thus providing a sense of comfort, rest and peace. Through this coordinated demonstration of God’s love and provision, we will bring smiles and comfort to children and families. Our focus is to serve the children referred by Resurrection's partner school districts and specific mission partners.
Volunteers are needed to load/unload mattresses, greet participants and assist them in picking up linens and pajamas. This is a great serving opportunity for the whole family-appropriate for children 7 and older when accompanied by an adult. Please note this event takes place outside-dress accordingly!
