At Renovation Church, we believe that an important spiritual formative in the life of each believer is serving God and others. Our GO ministry provides opportunities for believers of all ages to extend a hand in the name of Jesus HERE in our local church, NEAR in the surrounding communities, and FAR around the globe.
Helping Hands Men’s Ministry
Helping Hands serves those in need who are associated with Renovation Church, particularly widows, widowers, seniors, and others, by addressing tangible needs at their places of residence and encouraging intentional, long-term friendships between care givers and care receivers. The men meet once a month on a Saturday morning for snacks, devotions, and job assignments before going out to serve their care receivers.
Snack Pack Ministry at Woodland Elementary School
We partner with Woodland Elementary school to provide needy kids with a weekly backpack full of nutritionally balanced, kid-friendly, supplemental food to take home for the weekend. Those serving in our Snack Pack ministry may volunteer to purchase food, pack the Snack Packs, deliver and/or pick them up at the school each week during the school year.
Colonial Acres Mobile Home Park
Together with a team of 4 churches our goal is to love the residents of Colonial Acres, a local, disadvantaged, mobile home park, into a relationship with Jesus. We focus on the needs of different groups of residents in various ways through on-site ministries, workdays, seasonal gatherings, and camps.
Jesus Loves Kalamazoo (JLK)
Through various training, outreach, and evangelism efforts, Jesus Loves Kalamazoo is making a unified effort to bring the love and forgiveness of Jesus to our neighbors in the greater Kalamazoo area. Over 50 local churches and para-church organizations are involved in JLK. Renovation Church takes an active part in planning and hosting a grill site in Colonial Acres and participates in various other sites each summer.
Renovation Church supports other local ministries whose mission is consistent with our own to serve the thirsty, enslaved, hungry, and marginalized by meeting physical and spiritual needs through sharing the gospel of Jesus.
• Kalamazoo Gospel Mission
• Youth for Christ Kalamazoo
• Wings of God
Globally, the needs are endless so we concentrate our efforts in the country of Haiti and more specifically the city of Dessalines and surrounding area.
Living Water International
We send various teams through Living Water International to drill clean water wells and teach hygiene in the country of Haiti. Renovation Church also often raises the funds needed for the installation of the wells also.
Haiti Missions Trips
We send teams to work alongside a FM Superintendent and Haitian nationals in Dessalines, Haiti. We teach VBS in schools, participate in street ministry, share our testimonies, and some preach in churches. Adults are welcome to join us on one of our mission trips. It is an opportunity not to miss and almost inevitably it will impact your life.
