Adult Christian Education and Bible Study at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection

Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, located at 1700 Makefield Road, Yardley offers adult classes in Christian Education Sunday mornings also at 10 AM. While this class is designed for adults, inquiring Christians from any point in their personal faith journey are welcomed and encouraged to join us.

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.

Lutheran Church of the Resurrection Confirmation Ministry

This two year ministry is for youth in grades 8 & 9.  The 2019-2020 format will include Sunday morning classes at 10 AM.

Vacation Bible School at the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection.

Nearly 50 children attended our successful Vacation Bible School (VBS) in the last week in June of 2019, as we continued the approach of leveraging a Professional Organization’s successful experiences. This year we again teamed up with Bear Creek Camp for Vacation Bible School from June 24th through June 28th.  It was a day camp of games, activities, crafts and learning more about God’s love. We offered a full day VBS from 9:00-3:00 for children entering kindergarten through sixth grade in the fall.   A half day from 9:00-11:45 was offered for preschool children ages three to five years.

 

  • Registration fees: $25/child with a $60 family cap

Registration forms are available below or or can be picked up at the church narthex.
