CHILDREN’S CHURCH

We love children here at Renew Church! Kids are a gift from God, and we value them greatly. It is our goal to include them in learning the Gospel message of Jesus, but we also understand that youngsters of various ages learn at different paces and in different ways.

Our Children’s Ministries are set up to offer age-appropriate learning for your kids that is safe, edifying, and most of all – fun! All of our nursery and children’s church volunteers are passionate about teaching the Word of God in ways that are interactive and memorable. Children are free to learn at their own pace in our Children’s Church while you attend our Sunday morning services, so we encourage you to bring them along!

CELEBRATE RECOVERY

Hurts, hang-ups and habits can get in the way of our relationships with God and others. We all have them. The good news is that we don’t have to let them define us or hinder us from having the best life possible.

Celebrate Recovery meets weekly on Monday evenings. We invite you to join us for lessons on how to navigate through the 12-steps to Recovery… God’s way. Each meeting involves small group time after the lessons that are gender-specific. In these groups, everyone is given the opportunity to share and receive support.

Community is where true healing begins. All are welcome to attend.

Learn more by visiting our Celebrate Recovery page.
