Village Classroom Switcheroo!
In case you hadn’t noticed, last week classrooms for the Village were a little different! We are excited about this change and hope that it serves our families and kids well as we make a BIG deal about God together!
Our Jr. Explorers, ages 6 weeks through 2 years are now located in the Playhouse room with our Nursery located in the back area of that room that is set up for babies and our Toddlers playing in the open area of that room.
Our Explorers, 3 and 4-year-olds, are now located in the room right next to the Playhouse. They will have an awesome time with free play activities, and a Preschool Gospel Project lesson geared with games and activities for their age group!
Our Kindergarten through Fifth Grade kids will still begin each morning upstairs. When they break into small groups, the Navigators (K and 1st Grade) will meet in the Sullivan Room, the Builders (2nd and 3rd grade) will meet in the Williams Room and the Scholars will continue to meet upstairs.
Please join us for our last week to study the book of Exodus on Wednesday nights at Jennifer Moore’s house (607 Gatsby Place NW, Concord 28027) OR onThursday mornings at Metrolina Church (9450 Moss Plantation Avenue NW, Concord 28027).

All ladies and their high school age daughters (9th grade and up) are invited to join us for a Seder Meal on Wednesday, April 12th at 6:00 pm . This ancient meal is rooted in Jewish tradition. Together we will discover how Jesus the Messiah is symbolized in every aspect of the meal. It will be a great way to prepare our hearts for Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday!
The meal will be held at Kalina Martinez’s house, 10921 Loudon Lane, Charlotte, 28262. Click Here to Register!
THE BOOK: A 4-Week Series on Scripture
Every week we open the Bible to hear what God says to us, but is his word reliable? Can we trust it? At times the Bible can be confusing and if we don’t understand the story, it’s easy to get lost. Sometimes Scripture seems to give us more questions than answers. How did we even get the Bible? Who decided what books to include? Why are there so many translations and what translation is best?
This Sunday we will wrap-up our study where we will spend the 9:00 hour prior to our worship service discussing the ancient Scriptures. We hope to answer some important questions regarding God’s Word. We’d love you to come.
Childcare is provided for those who need it. We just need to know you need it. Please sign up and let us know you’re coming so we can have plenty of coffee and bagels! Click Here to Register Now!
The All-Ren Retreat is Saturday, April 29th from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.! This one-day getaway at Cedar Grove Retreat (conveniently located in Kannapolis) gives everyone of every age at Ren an opportunity to connect with Jesus & enjoy time together before the chaos of summer begins.
The cost is $15/person OR $50 for family of 4 OR $10/person for families of 5 or more. We’ll have childcare onsite at the retreat center facilitating activities for children as well as assisting families during activities where all ages are participating together.
