Sunday Morning Offering

Write a check to “ReNew Community” and drop it in the offering at the worship service on Sunday. Cash works, too, but if you want credit for tax purposes, make sure it’s in an envelope with your name on it.


If you prefer, you can also send a check (written by you or your bank) to our office. Mail checks to:
