Renaissance Church is not a building. It has always been and will always be the people who are working together to build the kingdom of God.
The Summit Opera House has allowed our church to meet and form relationships for years, but it is a space we’ve outgrown.
Soon, we will move into a new space, which will be a tool to help us accomplish our mission of building disciples who invite and inspire others to love and serve Jesus together.
We have signed the contract to purchase 639 Mountain Ave. in Springfield, a building owned by Holy Cross Lutheran Church. We’re in the due diligence phase of our purchase and hope to move in after all the inspections are complete and the purchase is finalized.
Initially, we’d planned to share this news while launching a capital campaign to help raise the funds to purchase and renovate this new building. But since everyone’s circumstances have changed, we are adjusting our expectations to match our reality.
We know this is a financially challenging time for many of you. We also want to use our resources in the best way to help care for those in our church community, so we are scaling back our initial plans to renovate the entire building for now.
If you are in a position to join us financially in the purchase of the new building, we’ve created a designated giving option for the Building Fund. You can give online or by text. If you need assistance, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Helping the Move
As soon as we have more timing details, we’ll create a team to help with the move. Please contact us if you’re interested and able to help.
About the Building
The building is less than four miles away from the Summit Opera House, and there is more than 30,000 square feet of space to meet. Worship can happen on the ground floor, and there is an elevator to reach other floors. There is also plenty of room for groups, programs, and connections.
