We hope you’ll join us this fall for our series, Picture of God (Parables to Practice). At Renaissance, we have a desire and a goal to grow in understanding of who God is and what his love looks like for us in this community. We want to be a church that’s shaped by God, and our hope is that the teaching from this series will help us become the kind of people Jesus said we should be. Jesus did this through the parables he told, demonstrating the characteristics of God that we’re meant to imitate. In each of these parables, we see snapshots of his true nature—welcoming, merciful, forgiving, generous, compassionate, and hardworking. As we grow together in our understanding of God’s love, we hope you’ll invite a friend.
