Three powerful words. Words that, together, share a powerful message to our community about who we are and what we're for. At Renovation Church, we champion that statement because we believe every man, woman, and child has a place where they can call home. Here’s why:
You It reflects the uniqueness of how God purposefully hand crafted you and I in his image. He has given us gifts, talents, dreams and ambitions. Those immeasurable gifts allow us to become a great student, leader, parent, and employees. Such gifts allow us to provide for our families, our community, and the local church.
And there is a greater story unfolding. It’s a collection of individual stories. The greatest news of all—God wants every person to enter into a relationship with Him; to discover the true fulfillment and meaning of life. He has a perfect plan in how to use you to do things beyond your wildest dreams, beyond what you are capable of accomplishing alone.
+ Belong That universal desire of every person—to experience a sense of belonging. It's a place where we are loved and accepted no matter what our background, race, ethnicity, or what the pocketbook says. It’s the feeling that makes you say, “I can be real and authentic. I’m with family.” It brings comfort and safety through the storms of life and celebrations of life's journey, all while being shared together. To belong means to have authentic community and accountability. Belong simply says, we need each other.
+ Here This is the place where stories collide. It’s the community we love and belong to. It’s the place where we work, play, and raise our families. It’s the moments that make up the dash in our life; from the day we were born to the day we die. Here is significant because it brings about the personal expressions of God’s mission in our lives. And Hampstead is at the epicenter of where God wants that impact.
Here is where God has us today. We belong in this community. God has prepared it for the wonderfully, talented, unique you!
= You Belong Here
“Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourself with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. “ Colossians 3:12-15
