SUMMIT, NJ—Renaissance Church has moved its Sunday services and community programs online due to restrictions necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic.
The non-denominational church is streaming its Sunday services at 8:30 a.m., 10 a.m., and 11:30 a.m. and encouraging connections in virtual ways. Prayer Meetings are taking place online on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings.
Groups are also meeting online, as well as three support groups: 'GriefShare', for those facing difficult times after the death of a loved one; 'DivorceCare', for those navigating life after a divorce or separation; and 'Rays of Hope', for families of loved ones struggling with substance abuse.
Renaissance Church is also providing resources for children and teenagers, as well as daily texts from Lead Pastor Christian Andrews.
“We are a church that invites everyone to understand and experience the love of Jesus, and at this time, our mission is more important than ever," said Andrews. "We want to provide hope by turning to God for encouragement and comfort. We’d like to be able to gather together in person as soon as possible, but in the meantime, we believe we can continue to learn and grow by worshiping together in our homes and connecting and caring for each other from a responsible social distance."
Renaissance Church is a non-denominational church normally located in the historic Summit Opera House at 2 Kent Place Boulevard. For more information, visit renchurch.com.
