All ladies & their high school age daughters (9th grade & up) are invited to join us for a Seder Meal on Wednesday, April 12th at 6:00 pm . This ancient meal is rooted in Jewish tradition. Together we will discover how Jesus the Messiah is symbolized in every aspect of the meal. It will be a great way to prepare our hearts for Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday!
The meal will be held at Kalina Martinez’s house (10921 Loudon Lane, Charlotte, 28262). Click Here to Register!

THE BOOK: 4-Week Series on Scripture
Every week we open the Bible to hear what God says to us, but is his word reliable? Can we trust it? At times the Bible can be confusing and if we don’t understand the story, it’s easy to get lost. Sometimes Scripture seems to give us more questions than answers. How did we even get the Bible? Who decided what books to include? Why are there so many translations and what translation is best?
This Sunday we will wrap-up our study where we will spend the 9:00am hour prior to our worship service discussing the ancient Scriptures. We hope to answer some important questions regarding God’s Word. We’d love you to come.
Childcare is provided, plus coffee & bagels!
The All-Ren Retreat is Saturday, April 29th from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.! This one-day getaway at Cedar Grove Retreat (conveniently located in Kannapolis) gives everyone of every age at Ren an opportunity to connect with Jesus & enjoy time together before the chaos of summer begins.
The cost is $15/person OR $50 for family of 4 OR $10/person for families of 5 or more. We’ll have childcare on site at the retreat center facilitating activities for children & assisting families during activities where all ages participate together.
Opportunity #1: Lifeline Missions (Overseas)
The Huffman Family (Daryl, Paula, Nick & Miranda) will soon be going on a mission trip with Lifeline Missions to Grand Goave, Haiti. They are currently collection powdered baby formula as well as infant liquid vitamins.
If you or your family would like to donate either of these items for their trip, please contact Daryl (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Paula (email@example.com) by next Thursday, April 13th. Please pray for the gospel to be advanced & for the safety of their team as they minister to that community. Thanks!
Opportunity #2: Kairos Inside Weekend (Prison Ministry)
Coming up April 20th-23rd, Wes Richardson joins a team of 40-50 volunteers going to the Evans Correctional Institute (Bennettsville, SC), a medium/maximum security prison where the team will host a 3.5 day weekend for 36 attendees designed to build a Christian Community within the prison. Many attendees are not followers of Christ, but this weekend will help them experience His love, grace & forgiveness. Many come for nothing more than the food…but they leave with a whole lot more!
Their team needs to assemble 2,000 to 4,000 dozen homemade cookies for the weekend. Wes personally needs to gather 100 dozen of these cookies which are delivered by hand to attendees plus all individuals in the prison (both inmates & guards). They’re a small token that represent God’s love & show those incarcerated that people outside the prison’s walls still love, care for & pray for them.
Game to donate cookies? If so, please email Wes (dwesrichardson
