    Micro-Church Families

    Well, only 6 weeks until we go-live with Micro-Church Families in Belle Plaine, Carver, Chanhassen and Shakopee. During August and September we are doing prayer, preparation and leadership training – all so that, when we open the Micro-Churches in October, we are ready for what God is bringing. What is he bringing? Family! Some of those family we already know. God also has an extended family waiting to be reached and loved, and we look forward to seeing the harvest. 

    These past 3 weeks of leadership training have made me more excited than ever about what God is doing and the impact the MCFs will have. This past week, in addition to the training, we also did baptism.

    ** NOTE: If you are wanting to be baptized, please let me know. Another baptism is possible before Fall but I need to know. ** 

    Youth and Book study

    Youth ministry for grades 6-12 continues Wednesday evenings from 6:30PM - 8:00PM at Rez Life Waconia (9025 Airport Rd., Waconia, MN 55387.) Attendance has been great and they are having a wonderful time of fun, fellowship, word and ministry.

    For the adults dropping off their teens, the book study "Come to Papa: Encountering the Father That Jesus Knew" by Gary Wiens continues at a local cafe / coffee shop hosted by Esther Young.

    For more information, please contact Mark and Jami at

    General Notes

    I know it is hard to wait and I hope these updates help you know what is going on and the great things ahead. However, most importantly, I want you to know that we are praying for you. We are praying that the Holy Spirit guides your heart in Christ Jesus with the peace of God that passes our understanding. I can’t tell you exactly why I am so convinced this is the right path for Resurrection Life Church. But, I have no doubts that this is the right direction and we are simply following his clear direction.

    Be blessed. We love you all. If you have questions, please reach out to me at

    Well, we had another amazing Leadership Training weekend on Giving. Did you know that Giving is a lifestyle of submission to God and not just about money? Money is an area we often struggle with and yet, God is looking for us to be Givers in every area of our lives including money. When we are givers - knowing He is the one who supplies our needs and the giver of all we have - He can pour out his blessing on us. 

    Only 8 more weeks until we start Micro Church Families and I am very excited (see for locations and times). The family experience is fulfilling, refreshing …AND... we will still get together as a larger family body the first Sunday of each month beginning in November.   

    Here are a couple quick updates for you. 

    1. 15 attended the Youth Group this week and had an absolutely amazing time! It is underway Wednesdays 6:30PM to 8PM at Rez Life Waconia – for Grades 6 – 12
    2. The Book Study also started this week at Caribou, Waconia – Wednesdays 6:30PM to 8PM. Come, drop off kids at Youth Group and then come for a cup of coffee, fellowship and discussion
    3. Check out the Events calendar for timing and locations.
    4. Aimee Kyambadde, Debra Baum, Pat and Carl Huseth have begun planning for the Pastoral Care Ministries and have great ministry ahead. More to follow but I am very excited about the amazing things God is doing in this and each of the other areas of ministry. 
    5. Lastly, there will be other “extensions” as we move into October and beyond – such as Thursday night worship time and training at Rez Life Chanhassen plus more.   
    6. I would like to check if there were those who are interested in water baptism and, more specifically, have family members (or themselves) who are ready to take that important step of sharing your Faith in God through being baptized.   If this is something you have been considering or are ready to do, please contact me at

    Check the Events calendar and watch Facebook for updates and email with any questions. Remember: Come, taste and see that the Lord is good and His mercy endures forever. You will never by the same. 

    Thank you and God bless you., Pastor Lee

    Only 9 weeks until Micro-Church Families start! In the meantime, your leadership team is meeting, training and preparing to serve our families starting in October. After our first MCF Leadership Sunday (MCF Leadership only, sorry) I am super-pumped about the Micro-Churches and what God is doing. Get ready for Rez Life 2.0! Which Micro-Church will you go to? See our times and locations at  

    We are also happy to announce that Pastoral Care ministries (counseling, prayer, etc.) is in the works under the leadership of Pastor Aimee Kyambadde.  How cool is it to be able to invite the hurting and lost to a MCF to find the love of Christ, receive salvation and healing in all areas of their life!  More details on this vital ministry will follow in upcoming weeks.  

    Stay blessed and in God's word! We love you all and are praying for you and His blessings to be upon you and your family.
