Children, ages 3-10, will enjoy upbeat songs, Bible study, games, snacks, and crafts. While adults can enjoy an opportunity to crack open the Bible and study core teachings of the Bible.
We are especially excited that this year Resurrection families have two great opportunities to invite friends, family and neighbors to join them in studying God’s Word, at:
Monroe – Saturday, July 28th, 9:00am-Noon – Register at:
Verona – Sunday-Thursday, July 29th-August 2nd, 5:30-7:30pm -
Thursday in Verona, Bible Study at 7:30pm—Ephesians
Sunday in Verona, 30 minute Sermon Study—10:30am
This morning we continue a special sermon series in connection with our recently devel-oped ministry plan. This sermon series walks through the book of Ephesians. As God gives direction and encouragement to the church in Ephesus, we take in this glorious encourage-ment for ourselves and our own congregation. With Christ as the foundation of everything we do, we look at how our congregation carries out its mission.
1. We grow in faith.
Welcome our New Vicar!One way that we like to welcome our new vicars to Resurrection is by having a Pantry Shower. Vicar Uhlhorn will be moving in on August 1, and we`d like to stock his new apartment with pantry items. Please bring non-perishable food items to church between now and July 31. You can place them in the basket near the bulletin board. If you have any questions, contact Lisa Hermanson at (608)772-7658 or email@example.com.
Elizabeth Strutz is also helping to collect other household items that Vicar needs for his apartment. You can check the bulletin board for what is needed and what has already been collected if you would like to help in that way. Thank you for making our new vicar feel at home!

Sorry for the delay. I had a funeral last week and it`s been ironically stressful for January. Happy to give a short update.
2018 marks the third year at another RLC - Redeemer Lutheran Church - in Ann Arbor, MI. Megan and I got married in June 2016 in California and continue to enjoy life with all the activity of a university city.
Ben, Molly, and Emma
We do not have all that much new to add. I am currently starting my last semester at WLS and God-willing I will be receiving my call in May. We hope to see some of you then!

Tim Rosenow (July 2012- June 2013)
Hey all! Pastor Tim, like Vicar Tim, is still single, but the count of my niblings (nieces and nephews) has now increased to 7 with an eighth arriving in February! I`m blessed to have many of them quite close so I can visit and spend plenty of time being the favorite uncle.
David and Katie
Here`s a succinct summary for RLC. To be sure, I can provide any other interesting details or members can ask, but this is probably what you`re looking for.
Regarding our family, Katie and I are blessed with Hezekiah James Sigrist, 4 years old, a creative, social little guy who is getting ready to start kindergarten this fall, and Samuel Levi Sigrist, almost 4 months old, who loves seeing new faces. We still and will always remember our daughter Hadassah Noel Sigrist who was born August 21 2016, baptized in the hospital room, and passed away the next day due to expected health conditions.
Caleb & Kristin Free
If our family was at all musically talented, our band name would be, Kristin and her July Boys. My birthday is July 13, three year old Clay`s is July 4, and brand new Aaron`s is July 15 (Kristin`s is April 14). Funny story about Aaron`s birth...he came three weeks early, and he also came on the same day I was officiating a wedding. Fortunately, I was able to see him born, quick perform the wedding, head back to the hospital to hold Aaron, all in about 2 hours. Everyone is doing well, and I can`t thank God enough for my beautiful family.

One hundred years is a long time. Think of all that has happened. The world has been at war. New countries have formed, while others collapsed. New technologies have developed. (Can you remember what it was like before the microwave oven and the air conditioner?) The synod has changed as well. We`ve grown, reaching out in countries around the world as well as throughout the United States. We`ve also used technology to spread the gospel even further, allowing the Holy Spirit to work in the hearts of more people.
The year 2014 marks a momentous occasion for the small church publication Forward in Christ. The magazine has been sharing the gospel message for one hundred years...

Notes From Pastor Strutz
Pastor Andrew Ewings grew up in DeForest Wisconsin his father is pastor Jerry Ewings who has served at Lord of Love for many years and also at Lakeside Lutheran High School.
Pastor Ewings attended Lakeside Lutheran High School in Lake Mills and Martin Luther College in New Ulm Minnesota. Pastor spent time in China with the Friends of China program where MLC students and graduates take time to teach English in a Chinese school. In their spare time students have opportunities to witness conduct Bible classes Etc.
In Andrews case he also fell in love with his now wife Ivy. Her family still lives in China and word on the street is that Ivy is a fantastic cook especially of Chinese food (the real stuff not the stuff that you get at Panda Express). They will be spending a month this summer in China before joining us in Monroe. This will be Ivy`s first time seeing her family since they have been married.
Vicar Jordan Uhlhorn grew up in Scottsdale Arizona where he attended Arizona Lutheran Academy. He he is a runner and basketball player, and yes I may have included in a prayer or two that all thing considered a runner might be nice. I promise it was not at the top of my list of qualifications though. Vicar is single.
Vicar Uhlhorn actually wore his orange RLC t-shirt under his choir gown for the Seminary graduation concert.
We at RLC can`t say enough how excited we are to welcome Pastor Ewings and Vicar Uhlhorn and every indication from call day is that the feeling is mutual.
We are working to improve communications at RLC. Part of this effort is introducing new validation processes, which will require us to set earlier deadlines for announcements. If you would like an announcement in the bulletin, it will need to be submitted one week before our earliest service. Example: An announcement for Sunday 3/18 (includes Thursday 3/15 and Mon-day 3/19) will need to be submitted by Wednesday, 3/7.
Likewise, any announcement to be included in the monthly newsletter will need to be sub-mitted one month in advance. Example: An announcement for the May newsletter will need to be sub-mitted by March 31.
Please submit all announcements to firstname.lastname@example.org with heading and text exactly as you would like it to appear. Please note that limited printing space does not allow for all announcements to be in printed format. However, all announcements will be included electronically in the RLC Notes email.
When you submit an announcement, an electronic copy (i.e. pdf file format of either bulletin or newsletter) will be emailed to you for validation. If you need to make a correction to your announcement, you will need to reply to the email with the correction within 3 days.
Thank you for your help in improving our communications here at RLC!

Ken Notes: If you miss a deadline or have an item just for RLCNotes I may be able to accommodate last minute requests (I send RLCNotes Thursday or Friday). BUT my email can be a mess (100`s per week), so a call to 608.334.2174 will help. Emails must contain the text rlcnotes or rlc in the subject or body because I search for this from emails sent to Ken@KenHarwood.com. I also except bribes in the form of cookies, cake, or personal visits (bring a hammer).
