10-11-30 Resurrection Online Update

I am looking forward to the next few weeks at Resurrection Online. In two weeks we are going to be launching a refresh of the Resurrection Online web and mobile page at www.rezonline.org. This will allow you to register your attendance and give without opening a new window. It will also position us to begin development of additional opportunities to build community online that will launch in the first part of 2011.

My wife, Nicole, and I are expecting our first child next month. I am preparing to transition my week to week responsibilities to another staff person while I am on paternity leave. I will be away for 5 weeks after the birth of our child. Here are a few other events coming up in the month ahead at Resurrection Online.

Advent at Resurrection – December 5, 12 and 19 at www.rezonline.org

This Advent, hear the Christmas story as you’ve never heard it before! We will retrace the journey of Mary and Joseph from Nazareth to Bethlehem.

Christmas at Resurrection – December 12 at 7:30 PM at www.rezonline.org

“Christmas at Resurrection”, Kansas City’s MUST SEE Christmas musical event, is now in its 7th year.  This delightful evening of music, drama, dance and pageantry features over 300 voices of children’s, youth, and adult choirs accompanied by our own 50 piece orchestra. This performance will leave you in the Christmas spirit like no other event in the area.

Candlelight Christmas Eve – December 23 at 8:00 PM; December 24 at 5:00 and 7:00 PM at www.rezonline.org

Candlelight Christmas Eve is one of my favorite worship services of the year. I hope that you will be able to join us in person or online.

Candlelight Christmas Eve

Last night, I went to one of the Christmas Eve Eve services with the Vibe worship team in preparation for services today. The candlelighting sequence is beautiful every time. I love it. The depth of the darkness and the brightness of thousands of candles is a moving contrast.

Today I will be helping lead the Vibe Christmas Eve services at 3:00, 5:00 and 7:00 PM in the student center. I hope that you are able to join us for one of the services at Resurrection.

If you are helping lead worship today or are unable to physically be present, I invite you to join us at http://live.cor.org for the opportunity to worship with us at Resurrection. Our Candlelight Christmas Eve services will be live streamed at http://live.cor.org today at 7 PM, 9 PM, or 11 pm CST.

Christmas Eve Eve

Christmas Eve kicks off at Resurrection today. We invite members of the church to attend one of the services on December 23 so that more room will be available for guests on December 24. Services are at 4:00, 6:00 and 8:00 PM. Here is the promo for the Advent series that has been leading up to the celebration of Jesus birth at Christmas
