Renew Women’s Getaway (May 19th–21st)

We are so excited to invite you to the Renew Women’s Getaway, Friday evening through Sunday morning (May 19th—21st, 2017) in Lincoln City. Most meals are provided, and your main cost is lodging. We’ll be staying at the Castle at Road’s End (see photos below), a spacious 3,500 SF home with six bedrooms, a spa, sauna and open floor plan. Sign-up!

Build the Altar this Snow Day

Our Sunday worship gathering is canceled due to inclement weather; while the snowy roads are passable for some, the likely onset of freezing rain, atop of existing snow, and coupled with a winter storm advisory asking people locally to not travel unnecessarily, means we are wise to not gather as a whole church family today.

While we won’t be gathering at 813 7th Street together this morning, to serve one another and worship the risen Christ, we do get to do well in our homes this snow day.

Christmas Eve & Day

The Renew Church family shall meet on Saturday, Christmas Eve at 7pm and again on Sunday, Christmas Day at 11am. Both family gatherings are planned for an hour together, and each will have a distinct focus. “Light” on Christmas Eve, and “God with Us” on Christmas morning. (We also gather every other Sunday morning at 10 AM. Be our guest!)

Why gather on Sunday, Christmas Day?

Why not just take the day off?

Extreme Weather Updates: when & how we shall make weather-related decisions about Sunday gatherings

Weather Updates: With #SNOWPDX upon us, and weather-related concerns, we recognize communication will be helpful before Sunday morning arrives. We have three simple axioms connected to making decisions on gatherings in the event of extreme weather, and a few ways to communicate with all. These are SAFETY, WISDOM & SHARING. Communicating well helps us not invest needless time thinking solely about ourselves and our plans.

Looking outside and noticing a bit of snow! Have you been able to enjoy it as much as endure it? #RenewReCreate

As much fun as it can be, often the weather leads us to be fun, fearful or foolish.

Since a few have asked, I’ll revisit a weather policy drafted on the fly a couple winters ago, reworded for a new season. As we live in a mostly under-prepared locale, let’s be SAFE, WISE, and SHARE …

Global 6K for Water

About every minute a child under age five dies as a result of diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. Let’s change that. Join the Renew family & others in the neighborhood (& around the globe) as we run, walk or shuffle 6K for Water. Saturday, March 19th.
