NOTE: Family Meetings are not currently taking place. We believe these will resume in the summer of 2016.
In March of 2015, the Lord gave The Resurrection a fresh vision for restarting our church. It revolves around each of us praying daily for the Lord to give us a new team of mature leadership. (See #9 on our Prayer List.) We want a team to partner with, rallying around our calling to serve Jesus.
During this season (Spring and Summer of 2015), we are praying and waiting on the Lord to send us 10 families of reasonably mature, discipleship-minded, missionary Christians who seek to do ministry in our communities around East St. Louis. (We don't want only people who meet this description. We just need people who do, to help us reach, serve, and train those who don't!)
And the Lord is faithfully sending us new people on a weekly basis! He is sending us these 10 families of believers, and he's sending us several other folks as well.
Since the Lord is faithfully gathering new people to us, we need a chance to get to know each other, and share vision for our congregation. It takes time to begin building the daily practice of prayer into our lives, for example. We also need a chance each week to practically plan together, as we are growing.
Our Monday Family Meetings are the time when we get to know the new people God is sending us, and become both a Christian family and a team.
- Prayer List / Trusting God
- Our Calling

Whoever you are, whatever your background, you are invited to come join us!
- Every Monday night, at Kool Beanz Cafe. 6 to 8 pm.
- The meetings last 7 weeks, on a repeating cycle (called a Round), but people can begin coming on any week.
You are not making a commitment just by showing up. This is a no pressure chance to come and see what God is doing at the Resurrection.
See you there!
