Resurrection Life, a non-denominational church “Preparing You for Success in Life,” has recently welcomed speakers including former Buffalo Bills quarterback Frank Reich; Dove Award-winning singer Michael English; motivational coach Mike Connaway; and Mark Cahill, best-selling author of “One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven.” In April, it staged “Glory and the Fire,” a drama the late Pastor John Osteen called the most powerful evangelism tool he had seen in 50 years of ministry.

The venue is comprised of four parts: a main auditorium; a KidZone, where preschool and elementary school children are taught; Vertical Reality, a spiritual hub for teen-agers, located in an adjoining building; and a food pantry that feeds more than 1,450 Western New Yorkers each month. Services are held on Sunday at 10 a.m., and on Wednesday at 7 p.m. The Rev. John F. Tonelli is senior pastor.
