Church in Summer
DEAR FRIEND,

WELCOME TO OUR WEB SITE

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

Sunday worship has resumed with some restrictions. Based on State of Maine guidelines and for the safety of all, we strive to maintain social distancing and the wearing of masks are required. Currently, services are being held on Sundays at 8:30am. and 10:30am. Please call the church office to confirm your attendance.

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.

    Thank you Rev. Nielsen for your audio sermons. I live in Rapid City SD and since the churches have closed down due to the coronavirus I have searched the internet for sermons to listen to. Please continue God’s work. God bless.

    Pastor Nielson,

    Thank you for these opportunities to cross state lines and enjoy these sermons and the most recent bible study on the fruit of the spirit. As I think of God’s voice guiding me and comforting me, it is so clear, you are God’s called servant providing a loving and engaging example, calm, consistent and called for such a time as this. In my quiet time, I read and study with less distractions and less business of the day. When I think of that nurturing and human voice, representative of God’s gracious love, I thank him for you! If I talk to you in person or by electronic means, your voice comforts me and I can hear a Jesus and understand the wealth of understanding I seek. Thank you for being that loving conduit and reminder of how God loves us through your gentleness and kindness and guiding verbal comfort as you point me to our Lord, our savior, and towards a deeper connection in such a masterful wording of God’s word as well as the delivery of love through a sermon, bible study or just a simple conversation across state lines. The empty church is indeed a hard reality, a constant reminder for all of us in what we are missing. However, even though you are seeing empty pews in a way you never imagined, I want you to know, I (we) are sitting right there along side the many we have previously in our community of faith. It is in the consistency of the message you are faithful to present, to a seemingly empty pew, and with a beautiful reminder of a shepherds voice, that you are reaching across, in and with your congregation and I suspect a few more grateful guests. We love you, we are hear listening and pursuing God’s Will and God’s Grace in such a time as this! Thank you for your faithfulness and your loving reminder of God’s compassion through the airwaves, you are calling your congregation, they hear you, and I thank you for your faithfulness. God’s blessings. Jo-Marie
