RENEW LEADERSHIP GATHERING | OCTOBER 21ST

As a volunteer at Renew you are an essential leader that is shaping and developing the people God has entrusted to us. On October 21st we’ll be holding our first Leadershp Gathering from 9 - 11:30 AM. As we’ve grown as a church we know that we need to get even more serious about developing and training leaders to develop other leaders. We’re trying to make this as easy as possible for you and your family so we’ve structured the morning to only require you to be here for the times your ministry training is occurring and of course the allvolunteer time at 9:55 AM.

We’ve separated out the places we think there may be overlap between ministries:

9:00 - 9:50 AM: Connections & MC/Huddle Leaders
9:55 - 10:30 AM: ALL VOLUNTEERS for BIG PICTURE VISION
10: 35 - 11:25: Worship/Tech & RenewFM/Youth.

WE NEED YOU TO RSVP FOR THIS SO WE ARE PREPARED. Please RSVP here.

CONNECTIONS VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The Connections team is in need of new volunteers for each of our Sunday gatherings. If you’re interested in lobby or auditorium greeting or making coffee for Sunday mornings please mark your communiciation card or signup via the connection section on the Renew app. You can also email Bethany Solyntjes at bethany@renewcommunities.com for more info.

PRAYER AT RENEW

Prayer is a crucial way for us to connect to God and a way we can connect to each other as well. Every Sunday following our Worship Gathering there will be a team of people available to pray with you for anything that you’re working through. Just look for the folks wearing lanyards near the front of the stage. If you have any prayer requests that you’d like others to be praying for throughout the week you can email them anytime to prayer@renewcommunities.com.

RENEW MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL

Our class for middle school students takes place during the 9:30 AM service on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month! We also have a class for 9th - 12th graders that takes place during the 9:30 AM service on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month.
