Renaissance Church offers services online and plans to offer limited in-person services as soon as possible. We’ll aim at meeting together as early in 2021 as we are able. In the meantime, we will continue our online services and offer other ways to connect online.

Unfortunately, I’m writing to let you know that we have decided not to begin gathering for in-person worship on November 29th as we had planned. Our decision came after careful review of the current trends in virus transmission in our area, many conversations, and lots of prayer.
I was so excited to be together again. One of the best parts of my job is being with folks face to face. So I share this news with a heavy heart. But the elders, staff, and I all feel that this is the right step to take.
Our target of November 29th was based on the information we had at the time. Unfortunately, things have changed significantly. And we feel it’s our responsibility as followers of Christ to put the well being of others before our own desires and rights. We are convinced that the most responsible way we can play our part in decreasing the spread of the virus is to remain apart until the trends go in the other direction.
We’ll aim at meeting together as early in 2021 as we are able. In the meantime, we will continue our online services. I encourage you to do what you can to foster safe connections with folks in the church. If you haven’t already, join an online community group. If you’re in one, make sure you do what you can to build up your relationships in Christ, especially while we remain separated physically.
Lastly, let’s all commit to prayer. For the physical health of our friends and neighbors. For the effectiveness of a vaccine. For the healing of our nation. For peace. And for a new awakening to the gospel in our time.
Lead Pastor, Renaissance Church
When we are able, we will open the Auditorium to a limited capacity, and registrations, screenings, and safety procedures will take place.
