  • Lemm Elementry

    In 2017, our local elementary students/teachers were displaced for a year. Hurricane Harvey had flooded and displaced the community. Today, we are overjoyed to partner with our Lemm Lions in many ways including: Lunch Buddies, Mentoring, Teacher appreciation, encouragement and more!

  • Kingdom Dog Ministries

    Seeing the Word of God through the eyes of a dog transforms lives, seriously! All of God’s creation can be used to glorify His name. KDM teaches powerful Gospel messages through the simple Word and astonishing relationship of a dog and Master. Those connected and not yet connected to Christ have experienced the reality that truth has no boundaries whether in a youth group, in a hunting club, mother’s group, or even high security prison.

  • Moblity. Dignity. Gospel. 

    Living with a disability in the third-world is an incredible challenge for families; it is also an incredible opportunity for Jesus’ wholistic healing. For almost two decades, Resurrection has collected wheelchairs from Houston area facilities and individuals. Our partners Joni and Friends, Hope Haven, and World Access Project rejuvenate these for families. And then, we join them in distributing these during our Mobility Mission Trips. You can help on the Calling Team, Pick Up Team, and/or Mission Team. If you have a mobility device to donate, call the church office to arrange a pick up or drop off.

  • Homeless Mats

    An extension of serving as a church that CARES in the wider Houston area is our Homeless Mat making project. The mats are made with reused grocery bags and then distributed to area individuals who are homeless.

  • Heart for Texas

    Help, hope, and healing after the storm! We live along the gulf coast and that means hurricanes and other disasters. Resurrection has been actively involved after Hurricane Ike, Harvey, etc. Serving alongside others makes a significant impact. To see examples, visit https://www.facebook.com/heartfortexas.

  • Externships

    Experience the heart and mission of God through discipleship, neighboring, and missional leadership development.  As a Sending church, investing and multiplying leaders for the Lord's Harvest (Luke 10:2) is a passion of Resurrection.  Externships typically occur during the summer months, but vary in length and specific emphasis.  They can bless those looking at 'full-time ministry' in the future or young (or not so young) leaders looking to live-out the life Jesus has for them in whatever vocation and season God is leading.  If you would like to learn more or begin the application process, please email Pastor Steve or Ted (firstname@churchthatcares.org)
