Thirty-four years ago, a group of Christians gathered to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. The date was Easter Sunday, April 3, 1983, and it marked the founding of a new WELS congregation in Maumee, Ohio ... Resurrection Evangelical Lutheran Church.
During the past 34 years, God has allowed our membership to grow and our facilities to expand. Most importantly, for 34 years the Holy Spirit has been at work in the hearts of God's people through the Means of Grace. Resurrection is a place where God's Word is preached, where precious souls are brought into God's family through baptism, where Jesus assures us of forgiveness with his own body and blood.
Resurrection is a place where we've shared our greatest joys and our deepest sorrows. It's a place where God's people come together to encourage each other all the way to heaven. As we look back over the past 34 years, we thank God for his grace to us here at Resurrection and pray that he would continue to guide and bless our future.
