If you have served on any team for the past year, RenBible wants to show you just how much you’re appreciated by throwing you a banquet! Well, a luncheon at least. On Sunday, November 19th immediately following the service, we would like to invite you to the Williams Room (right down the hall) so you and your family can enjoy lunch on us. (For any kiddos 5th grade and under, we will have separate child care provided and we’ll give them lunch as well so you can sit back and enjoy the celebration of you!)

Please register so we know how many of our awesome volunteers we need to plan for– and we’re hoping for each and every one!

After every baby boom comes a Baby Dedication Sunday!  If you are interested in having your little one dedication on Sunday, November 12th, please contact Pastor James at James@RenBible.org.

Ho, Ho Ho!  ONLY 60 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! (Sorry, had to get your attention.) It’s not too early to start thinking about decorating your home and purchasing gifts. RenBible is offering you an opportunity to do both and raise money for Jesus at the same time!

We are offering live wreaths, garland and centerpieces from Sherwood Forest Farms in upstate Washington.  You place your order, then 10-14 days following Thanksgiving they arrive on your doorstep ready for display in your home.  These are also wonderful gift items for out-of-state family.  

Here is the link for you to view the items for sale and place an online order:  RenBible Wreaths for Honduras.

All proceeds will benefit RenBible’s GO FUND earmarked for sending our folks on the 2018 Summer Mission Trip to Honduras to work with Children Impact Network at their Honduras Life Center. If you or a family member are contemplating going on this mission trip, you can pass this information along and the profit generated from anyone who orders from you will go into your account!  No worries, if you don’t end up going, the funds will go into the general Honduras GO FUND to help others.

Questions? Contact Denise Long @ Denise@RenBible.org. Denise will also be in the back of the gym following Sunday’s service to answer any questions and to also accept orders.

Our new “Tackling the Tough Stuff” series launches this week, Sunday, October 29th! This three-week series explores how we as the Church can navigate difficult topics in our world today in a way that honors God, stands for truth and shows love to our neighbors. Topics covered include politics and religion (October 29th), sexual ethics (November 5th) and racial reconciliation (November 12th).

We’re inviting parents of high schoolers to bring their students along with them for all three weeks of this series. Parents of middle school students are also invited to bring their students along for Week 2 (November 5th) and Week 3 (November 12th). We recognize that the topics being addressed are difficult to navigate for adults, let alone teenagers. Here at Ren, our desire is to partner with parents to prepare their teens to begin processing how to discuss these topics with their family and friends both inside and outside the Church. We want Ren to be a safe place for parents & teens alike to gather together to ask difficult questions, grow in our knowledge of God’s Word and pursue truth as we reach out to our friends and neighbors together. If you have any questions, please email info@renbible.org. We’re excited to tackle these topics with all of you!

For the next three Sundays (October 29th, November 5th & November 12th), we’re inviting our High School Students to join their parents & SGLs (small group leaders) upstairs for the “Tackling the Tough Stuff” series @ 9am. Parents, please pray about having your student join you for this crucial series that addresses how to navigate difficult topics in our world today in a God-honoring way.
