Our Congregation

Faith Formation/Sunday School 9:30 AM

Children will begin in worship every week. They will be dismissed after the children’s message to Fellowship Hall for interactive Christian Education, including crafts, story time, music, games, and service projects.

One Sunday of each month (typically the third Sunday) will be designated as Children’s Workshop when our children will remain in the 9:30 AM worship service as leaders.

Adult Christian Education and Bible Study at LCR

Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, located at 1700 Makefield Road, Yardley offers classes in Christian Education Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM

While this class is designed for adults, inquiring Christians at any point on their personal faith journey are welcomed and encouraged to join us.

We are following a program called E-100 that explores the 100 essential stories for the Bible. Last year we completed our exploration of the Old Testament and now have moved forward with readings from the New Testament. The sessions are facilitated by Deacon Clyde Beury and encourages participants to bring their Bible and their questions.

If you have the feeling that the values you learned in earlier years no longer have a place in the modern world; if you have difficulty explaining what your faith means to you; if friends or coworkers ask why you still attend church; if you feel that there is something missing from your life, but can’t quite put your finger on it? Then this may be a helpful place to begin your search for answers. We may not have all the answers, but we can share some helpful questions in your search to your most fundamental questions.

DIAKONIA as Faith Formation

Diakonia emphasizes the baptismal vocation of all Christians to serve as did our Lord Jesus. Participants want to deepen their life of faith and ground their baptismal commitment to serve in the scriptural, theological, liturgical and historical traditions of the church. They are committed to serve through the church in a variety of ways: teaching, liturgical leadership, action for social justice, evangelism, visitation, homebound, community organization, youth work and ministry and the like. In every way they seek and are helped by Diakonia, to grow closer to the image and example of Christ the servant.

The Diakonia program occurs:

  • By a thorough grounding in the classic seminary disciplines of practical, systematic, historical and Biblical theology;
  • By identifying and encouraging particular skills in ministry;
  • By providing spiritual growth through worship, retreats, and a supportive community of fellow students and instructors.

These are the tools Diakonia uses to help equip God’s people for discipleship service in congregations and neighborhood ministries. See a Congregational Deacon to discuss the program.
