A Welcome To The Site

Church in Summer


We are the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, located in Waterville, Maine at 36 Cool St.

Our hope is that this we might introduce ourselves to you through the page and posts you'll find here. By way of introduction, we are a member congregation of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. We believe, teach and confess that Jesus is the Son of God who has purchased and won forgiveness of sins, life and salvation by His precious blood shed for all mankind on the cross. God the Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ into the world for precisely this purpose. The Holy Spirit enlightens us by the hearing of the Word as recorded in the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Scriptures and brings us to faith through the hearing of the Word. We believe that salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and by faith alone – not by works. We grow in faith through the hearing of the Word and the reception of the Word in the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.

Please feel free to browse the SERMONS which are available in print, streaming audio and MP3 formats.

    I love your sermon on the Athanasian Creed (Trinity Sunday)! I plan on playing the mp3 for a group of Christian university students here in Chico, CA.

    I wish we had more doctrinal sermons like this presented within our Christian churches.

  2. Rev Robert Heathwood says:

    Thanks for your sermons on the Lord's Prayer. I plan to use some of your thoughts when I preach. Very inspirational.

    Pastor Nielsen,
    I really enjoyed reading your comments in a funeral sermon from John 14:1-7. I am a lay person and was asked to speak for my wife's family at the funeral of her sister. I was struggling with my words and started researching some thoughts and was led to this particular sermon. Some of your comments went straight to my heart as you seem to be talking about my sister in law.
    I plan to include some of your comments into my talk and I seek your permission.
    Thank you!

    Does your church have a choir? I will be in Maine the 2nd Sunday in June and will try to attend
    I was just curious.

    • Pastor says:

      Yes and no. We have 'singers' who help lead congregational singing. Looking forward to meeting you in June.
      Pastor Nielsen

    Dear Pastor Nielsen,
    Joy in Jesus from new Maine residents. Daria and I will be driving up to worship with you this Sunday as I have the day off for our 45th Anniversary. I believe your congregation is also celebrating an anniversary; congratulations!
    Peace, and looking forward to being with you,
    Ingo Dutzmann
