In conjunction with the 5th grader graduation, the Renovation Students want to invite parents of 6-8th graders to a parent night May 22. There will be games, worship, and relational activities aw we welcome in new students and give a peek at what happens in the middle school student ministry!
Calling all of Renovation Church! Mark your calendars for the next town hall meeting in June. At this meeting, we will discuss updates to Project 2019 and the multi-site plan, as well as the nominating of our new Leadership Team members, which will be done by those in covenantal membership.
In the busyness of our family lives, time to slow down and connect can become strained and even non-existent. Remember Monopoly? The game that took two hours, where you always seemed to be paying someone or sitting in “jail”? The game where your sister or brother always “happened” to be the banker and their money pile seemed to grow constantly? Did you have your special token piece, like the iron or the scotty dog? Those memories are times of connection and relaxation, even thought a fight broke out, there is a pleasure and joy found in games.
Here at Renovation we see the value in families coming together to enjoy games in community. Come connect with your family and others; compete, play, and relax.
Sign up today!

On the journey of Lent, this day is an important time to draw into the final moments of the passion of Jesus. As in the past, we will have the stations of the cross set up as an interactive, hands-on, come and go experience for every age. Each station points to a moment of the final days of Jesus before His crucifixion and paints a powerful picture of the passion of our Lord. The walk-through will take about 30 minutes.
We are seeking to bless and serve the Colonial Acres community this Spring Break through food! If you want to serve, we are looking for people to help provide food for bag lunches on Tuesday and to help pack those bags at 11:45am that day.
Not available Tuesday? Come help with the big pancake lunch on Friday at noon!
Please sign up ahead of time to serve!

As we enter the forty-day season of Lent, we begin with Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday is a Christian holy day of prayer, fasting, and repentance that has been observed for centuries. It is an introspective time focused on your life in Christ and ends with an optional cross made from ashes on your forehead, to remind us that we were made from dust and to dust we will return. At Renovation Church, we are holding a come and go service in the morning so you can stop by on your way to work, school, the store, or wherever your morning takes you. All are welcome!

"I wonder what presents I'll receive for Christmas...?!" With all the decorations and bright lights, the scrumptious candies and cookies, and the fun days with no school, this is the burning question most kids have in the days leading up to Christmas. And it's the same question that Bradley, one of the narrators in For the Glory of the King, is dealing with. Join Abigail, Emily and Alex as they help remind him of the real meaning of Christmas and why we worship the Christ-child today!
In December, the students of Renovation Kids will bring this narrative to life as they perform, For the Glory of the King. Kids ages 2 years through fifth grade can register to perform in this year's musical at:https://pfmchurch.breezechms.com/form/fd79cc
