All of us come from a family that’s just a little crazy. We want our families to look like a Norman Rockwell painting, but there is a lot of dysfunction around our picture-perfect tables. Sadly, the church family is no different. We come to the table with grand expectations but quickly find just as many quirks. We face frustrations and deal with disappointment. Despite the many challenges, our church family doesn’t have to be marked by awkward family meals and uncomfortable conversations. Sure, we may be a crazy family, but we can be a good kind of crazy.  Find out how as we look at three characters in every crazy family. The fun starts Sunday, August 13th @ 9am.

August 13th: Crazy Uncle Harry

August 20th: Grace filled Grandpa Dean

August 27th: Tell It Like It Is Tom

Coffee will be provided and Renegade will meet during the same time. Childcare is also provided, so bring the whole family!  So we’re able to make sure we brew enough coffee and can plan a great experience for the kiddos, please sign up for My Crazy Family here: https://renbible.churchcenteronline.com/registrations/events/76905

If you have any questions, please email Info@RenBible.org.

IT’S PROMOTION SUNDAY IN THE VILLAGE!

This Sunday, August 13th, our Village kids will be moving up a grade!  If you’re not sure what this means for your kiddos, just ask Jodi when checking them into the Village.

We will also be moving our Large Group classroom for Elementary to our downstairs classroom in the Sullivan Room. When your children arrive, plan to check your children in at the check-in table and then drop them off in the Sullivan Room for large group worship and teaching. When our classes split into small groups, our scholars will move upstairs. You will still pick your children up from the same small group classrooms that you currently do.

Join us this Sunday as we welcome our incoming 6th graders & launch the school year this Sunday, August 13th @ 9am!

The Gathering Launches August 13th!

We’re excited for The Gathering to launch on Sunday, August 13th (9:00-10:00 am)! We’ll be offering groups for adults to connect with fellow Ren folks and study topics of interest.  Renegade Student Ministries for middle and high schoolers will continue to meet at this time. And there’s more!  Childcare will also be provided during this time for kids of all ages! And we promise the coffee will be hot!

See the My Crazy Family small group study info registration link above.  See you there!

The RenMen’s kickoff event will be on Sunday, August 27th from 5:00 – 8:30 p.m.  We’ll meet at PDQ (Concord Mills) at 5:00 pm to grab dinner and hear an opening word from our guest speaker before heading over to K1 Speed for some intense gokart racing.  Each guy gets three races to battle it out with his fellow RenMen on the track.  Cost is $30 per person and registration will go live soon on RenBible.org!  Men, please register your high school and college-age sons and bring your friends!
