Our story

Resurrection Lutheran Church was chartered as a mission church of the American Lutheran Church in February 1978. The congregation met in the Ankeny Theater and the experience of coming to worship with the smell of popcorn and the stickiness of leftover chewing gum underfoot became a part of the humble servant culture of RLC. The congregation met in the Ankeny Theater until a sanctuary and small fellowship area was built in 1979, and subsequently the north and west wings were added. Later, the land to the south of the church was acquired with an eye to future expansion. Most recently an exterior remodeling project was completed.
