We thank you, Father, for the water of Baptism. In it we are buried with Christ in his death. By it we share in his resurrection. Through it we are reborn by the Holy Spirit. Therefore in joyful obedience to your Son, we bring into his fellowship those who come to him in faith, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
~ Book of Common Prayer 306
All are welcome at Resurrection. We are a people rooted in worship, branching out into the world. If you are visiting with us today, please complete a visitor’s card so that we might better welcome you. Fellowship time follows both services in the Gathering Space. All baptized persons are invited to receive Communion; others are invited to the altar rail for a blessing.
We are honored today to have Rev. Donald S. McPhail as our guest celebrant and preacher. Father Stephen and Rev. Peggy are visiting their newborn grandson in Florida.
Following the worship service today, please make your way to Emmaus Hall for a Patriotic Breakfast courtesy of Domer Ridings and other talented Resurrection chefs.

> We need artists!The VBS program invites children to imagine themselves as characters in several whimsical Dr. Seuss stories.We’d like to create a Seussical wonderland in the gathering area, which requires colorful backdrops and other props. If you are the artistic sort, please consider drawing or painting some items for the setting.Elizabeth Floyd will give you the details.
