Renew Communities is a missional church in Middleburg Heights, Ohio that started in the spring of 2011. We exist to see whole communities renewed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Longing For Home
There’s something comforting about coming home. You’re supposed to feel safe, loved, cared for, rested and happy at home. When we face the tough times and the hard days we have a longing to get back home. That longing is about more than a physical location or a heart full of memories, that longing was built into us by God and we’re longing to be at home with Him. In week 1 of our home for Christmas series we’ll talk about the longing for home that’s built into all of us and how we actually make our home with Him.
The way the world tells us to love ourselves is vastly different from the way God teaches us to love ourselves. In the final week of our “What Christians Do” series, we look at what God tells us is the greatest commandment and what it means to love ourselves.
Filter Through Jesus
We live in complex times which creates a need to find answers to complex questions. There is no shortage of people who are willing to direct our steps but the question is what do Christians do when we have big questions in our life? In this weeks teaching we discuss how seeking and knowing Jesus can help us filter things through his heart and teaching.
Jesus Say Relax
Have you ever thought about what the core of your worry or anxiety is? We generally can identify the symptoms but often we don't dig deep enough to find the cause which is almost always that we lack the ability to control what is happening in our world. In this week's teaching we discuss what Christians do with worry and anxiety and we learn what it means to relax in Jesus.
Render Unto Caesar & Unto God
Every four years we get the opportunity to choose who we want to lead our country. This blessing seems to have turned into a curse lately as there is more division and dissension in our nation than at any time in recent memory. In our final look at “What Christians Do” with politics we take a look at how Jesus responded when “forced to choose” politically and we’ll work to follow Him as we do the same.
Wars & Rumors of Wars
These days our world is full of rumors and rumblings about all sorts of things. When we let our hearts be captured by these rumors and rumblings we can be lead into all sorts of interesting conclusions and allegiances. Our hearts are easily captured by these theories or ideas and we can find ourselves living from a place of fear, suspicion or even anger without even knowing for certain they’re true. The question is what do Christians do in a world full of rumors and rumblings and how does following Jesus offer us hope in a world full of confusion.
