Chat with a Pastor

A historic church growing a fresh imagination of life with God, in community, for the sake of others and the city of Canton.

We gather for worship to (re)center our lives in God's story, to encounter the risen Jesus, and to tend to the creative work of the Holy Spirit within and among us. 

We gather not as individuals, but as a community of disciples deeply committed to one another, to learning the ways of Jesus, and to joining in on God's mission in the world. 

Sundays, 9:30am
As a church that is actively discerning what sort of future God has in store for us, we are currently experimenting with a new structure for our times of gathered worship.

At 9:30, with coffee and snacks in hand!, we gather around tables and open the pages of Scripture together. This is a guided, but highly participatory time of conversation about  what we discover in the Bible about God, his mission in the world, and our invitation to know and follow Jesus as his disciples. 

Then, around 10:15, we transition into the sanctuary for a time of prayer, contemplation, and singing. On the first Sunday of the month we also come around the Lord's table together, remembering and giving thanks for Christ's sacrifice as a gift through which God brings about healing, forgiveness, reconciliation, and recreation! 

Our time of worship comes to a close around 11 or shortly after and all are welcome to join us for both or either portions of our worship. 

Welcome to Resurrection!

For over 200 years, First Church of the Resurrection has cultivated worship, community, and ministry in and for the city of Canton.

Today, as a church and through the newly forming work of Resurrection Collective, we are actively pursuing fresh ways of bringing together people and groups who long to see the good news of God's new creation connected to the renewal of the city. 

We are a community passionately committed to being deeply formed by the love of God, in the ways of Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit, for the sake of others.

If this sort of imagination of life with God, in community, for the sake of others and the city of Canton resonates with you, let's talk! 
Serving our city alongside

We'd love to start a conversation.
