    Our buildings and grounds

    The campus at Resurrection is a huge parcel of land, part of St. Johns Bluff, at the north end of Monument Road, extending from the:

    A - The West area  where there is an extended grassy parking area that is also used for The Easter Egg Hunt.

    B - The main area which consists of paved parking places, and 3 buildings:

    1. The first is the Sanctuary, which seats over 200, with its high beamed ceiling, Episcopal RED doors which welcome all to the carpeted greeting and seating area, followed by a large altar area with hardwood floors.

    The hand crafted altar, the kneeling area, and the wood walls are in front of the area for Acolytes, Priests, the Bishop's Chair, and the choir area.  Two podiums are on the left and right.  On the north end of this building are the classrooms, on the south end is the Nursery and restrooms.

    2. The second is The Dearing Chapel, named for Father Dearing who was instrumental in starting a church on this location in the 1960s.  This open space houses the Choir Room, a room for the Boy Scouts, Restrooms, and a large meeting place which is used for many things including AA meetings, Wedding Receptions, Garage and Craft Sales and the Clergy Robing area for various functions.

    Behind this building is our Memorial Garden, which is lovingly tended.  Situated below the stained glass window of the Dearing Chapel, it is a quiet spot for meditation with a garden & seat.

    3. The third building  houses the Church Office and Rev. Carrie English's Office.

    On the lower level are The Parish Hall, and Kitchen, closets and restrooms. This busy place is where we hold most of our functions with larger numbers of people.  This is where the Baby and Wedding Showers are held, the Refreshments after Services, the Vestry Meeting, the ECW Meeting, Funeral and Wedding Receptions.

    Behind this area on the north side is a large deck, provided by the Pepper family, built around and looking over the huge Oak Trees, and Magnolias. This area is where the BBQ and Fish grilling takes place, where picnic tables are used to sit, chat and eat when overflow seating is needed.  It is also a favorite place for taking pictures, swinging on the porch swing, or lounging on the wrought iron chairs taking in the wonder of nature in a quiet space away from the hub-bub of the world.  Our campus is on a bluff high above the St. John's River which makes Jacksonville the unique city it is.

    Behind this building on the west side is the playground just across from the classroom.

    This area is a favorite spot for children and parents alike.

                                    Playground

    C - the East area in addition to many parking spaces has a private clearing down a gentle slope into the forest canopy where there is an Altar in the Woods crafted of native stone with a huge wooden cross. The cross was repurposed from a sunken log in Louisiana.  This has been the special place for early Easter services, and private prayer and meditation.

     

    We are blessed to have this wonderful campus of natural beauty for our use and care.  We have taken on agricultural floral areas and habitats to nurture.  A former Senior Warden made signs showing the caretakers names and using many bags of cedar mulch, there are pretty flowers, butterflies, bird bath, bird feeder and other plantings which add to the charm of our campus.

     

    The Jr. Warden coordinates the Clean-Up days, where the heavy equipment comes out and the teens along with Boy Scout Troop #279 arrive to help.  The adults bring gloves, tools, work at clearing, cleaning, polishing, mulching, and accomplishing much in the 3 hour time frame.  We are then rewarded with cold drinks, hot dogs grilled on the deck, homemade salads and desserts, and fellowship of the best kind.

     

    If this is an area of expertise in which you excel and enjoy working outside on our beautiful grounds, we sure could use your help. Many hands make light work is shown as we stewards all pitch in to beautify our surroundings that have been entrusted to our care.
