The Renewal worship service is designed to be a student-led service. Renewal exists for the sole purpose of bringing genuine worship before the throne of God. Renewal's aim is to help the congregation truly live a life of worship for the Lord by helping them to reach upwards to His throne of grace, reach around to the people sitting beside them, and reach out to the community at large. Every person, great and small, is welcomed into our church family! It is our desire to see Southern Adventist University students working together with our church family to serve the Lord and His people.
Adopt a Student: Adopt a Student was a ministry that was established at the start of the 2013 school year. The program was designed so that students, who wanted to be further connected to their church family, could fill out a card with personal information and put it in a stack to be passed out to our congregation. Over the next couple of Sabbath's those names were passed out to church members who were willing to adopt college students and make contacts with them at least 2 times each semester! This in-reach opportunity has been a success in many lights, but it is in no way perfect! If you, as a student, have been adopted, please remember that you must also be active in appreciating and adopting the family that has taken the initiative to adopt you. If you, as a church member, adopted a student, please remember to make connections with your student! If you have more questions about this ministry please contact Pastor Jim Moon by his email address listed below.
Renewal needs you! The Renewal team would like to invite more college students to participate as an official deacon of the Renewal church service. We need deacons or deaconesses who are willing to serve one Sabbath every month. These deacons would be responsible for that one Sabbath, and if one month they were unable to make it to church, they would need to find someone to fill their spot. If you would like to commit to being a permanent Renewal deacon, please contact Pastor Jim by his email listed below.
If you have concerns or suggestions for the Renewal family, or would like to learn about other ways you can be a part of this family, please contact someone listed below!
