Renaissance is a collection of diverse communities launching in and around Waltham, MA (and Auburndale/West Newton). For us, this is all about stripping away religious complexities to empower people to bring Jesus to the everyday places they live, work and play.
The Gospel of John says that God put on flesh and moved into the neighborhood (John 1:14, MSG). There is no divide between the sacred, secular, messy, and ordinary. God connects all things and people. We seek to be a church that lives this reality out by doing justice, loving mercy and walking humbly in everyday life - in homes, coffee shops, workplaces, schools, the outdoors, the streets, and in our neighborhoods. So, we're a church starting simple - with smaller initiatives and communities of people who commit to live out this mission and our values together where they live, work and play.
Want to be part of one of these as they get going in 2018-19? We'd love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org! Also - join our Meetup group and look at the upcoming events!
