Women’s Ministry is an opportunity to touch the lives of women by the power of Jesus Christ. To support women in their relationship with God so that through spiritual friendships, mentoring, modeling, and teaching one another, we might experience the freedom to become all that God intends us to be. This exciting ministry touches the lives of women in varied and creative ways. It is our goal to reach beyond comfort zones to embrace women of all ages, race, professions and social standings to build an environment for women to connect with women and feel God’s love in a very real way.

Resurrection Life Group Ministry
Living Life Together!
We invite you to join a Life Group!
Individuals and couples from Resurrection Life Church and the community meet once a week in homes around the area.
The groups are designed to promote:
- Personal Encouragement
- Relational Connection
- Mentoring and Getting Biblical Answers To Real Life Questions
Resurrection Life Group Ministry exists to help people develop meaningful, long-lasting relationships that facilitate personal growth in living the life they are born to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
Resurrection Life Group ministry is one of the most important ways to begin growth and continue growing as a Christian. These groups provide a place for people to have fellowship, develop close relationships and to learn and grow. They also help non-Christians learn more about what it means to be a Christian.
Becoming a part of a Life Group is critical in the process of discipleship because it’s a foundational place where we can share Christian love with one another in practical ways and learn about the Bible. It’s also a place that offers an ideal environment to develop deeper friendships.

6. What will we study?
7. What does it cost?
When you join a Life Group, you're promising to attend each week. It's this commitment that makes Life Groups work. We realize it's a big commitment, but it only lasts for 9 - 11 weeks. At the end of each quarter, you have the choice of recommitting for another quarter, trying a new group, or taking a break from Life Groups altogether.

Resurrection Life Church is a house of prayer. Prayer is centric between God and man. A specialized team of prayer warriors is in place to intercede for real life situations and needs.
The Prayer team of Resurrection Life Church is made up of highly trained believers, ready and willing to stand in the prayer of agreement with anyone in need. Following Sunday morning church services the Alter Prayer team is stationed at the front of the Sanctuary. The Alter Prayer team is often called on by Pastor Lopez to pray for individuals and families during alter calls and emergency prayer hotline calls.
Another extension of the Prayer team is handling all prayer requests made via prayer request cards and calls to the church office. This team of intercessors partner together in faith to see God do miracles.
Prayer is not only necessary for the survival of individual believers, it is essential for the church as well. Prayer is the heartbeat that keeps the blood flowing through the church system.
Every church is made up of people for various walks of life, and every good church does its part to care for the flock. As a church family we do our best to clothe, shelter, and grow together, but it is impossible for individuals to keep track of who is sick or who has missed church services. This is where the Flock Care Ministry comes in with very specialized teams to trained to fulfill various duties to care for the flock.
The Flock Care Ministry is a great asset to our Pastor, keeping him informed of the condition of church family members. Without Flock Care Ministry people could easily fall through the cracks and feel abandon by their church. The Flock Care Ministry is the welcoming hand to new comers to the church. The Door Keepers team and the Greeters team are the First people guests come in contact with when entering the church. The Friendship team is actively seeking out new comers to help them in any way needed and provide information about the church.
The Flock Care Ministry is also active outside the church, reaching out in convalescent home ministry and prison ministry. A group from the Flock Care team will regularly visit a convalescent home in Gratiot County and minister to the residents there with praise and worship, Biblical encouragements, the gospel and prayer.
Ugly Truck Community Mud Bog. September 23rd.
Ugly Truck is a free community mud bog for everyone. The event takes place right behind the church. We have fun activities for kids including inflatables, pony rides, a mud run, face painting, a live kids show and much more! Our mud bog is head to head and also new this year we will be having a UTV competition course and a Mini Jeep Crawl! Admission is FREE for this event. We will have concessions available for purchase at the event!
Resurrection Life Church is known in the community for special events like Christmas Tea and the Ugly Truck mud bog. These events are designed specially to be an evangelistic outreach to un-churched people in Mid Michigan.
The Community events team is a group of people who plan, organize, recruit and prepare for special events. From fundraising to purchasing equipment, the Events Team eats, sleeps and breaths events, always looking forward to the next opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost.
Well executed community events require a large work force, but before recruitment can begin there must be a well laid out plan (vision) to follow. The Events Team uses inspiration from the Holy Spirit, creativity, God-given talents, and sheer willpower to plan and see these event become reality.
