The church is not a place to go, but a people who go. In these words, Harvie Conn reminds us that the church is not a repository of truth, a guardian of righteousness, or a people segregated from the rest of the world. Our convictions, disciplines and communal life propel the church into service.
While the congregations of Resurrection Brooklyn have specific ministries partners in their neighborhoods we join together when we serve our city and our world. There are lots of opportunities to serve and use your gifts, time and talents. We’d love to have you share them.
