WHY CHOOSE RENEW YOUTH?

  1. Radical Welcome: We believe that everyone has a place at God’s table, and the same is true at reNEW Youth. No matter your background, identity, or beliefs, you are welcome here.
  2. Holistic Faith Formation: Our approach goes beyond traditional Bible study. We explore God’s Story through the lens of current events and real-world issues. We also spend time in spiritual practices, artistic projects, and thinking about how God is sending us to serve our neighbors in response to what we learn.
  3. Community Impact: We're not just about talking; we're about doing. Our youth are actively involved in community service projects, making a tangible difference in the lives of others.

As students grow and mature, we believe faith should grow and deepen with them. ReNEW Youth is designed to offer holistic faith formation for students in 6th-12th grade that connects our individual stories with God’s Story that is still unfolding. We study the Bible, learn spiritual practices, and respond through creative expression and intentional mission with our neighbors in Williamsburg and beyond.  

Weekly Gatherings: Join us every Sunday from 12:30-2:00pm in the Youth Room for an exciting blend of faith, fun, and fellowship. We start by playing games and sharing a meal together before exploring a Bible story through study, creativity, prayer, and wondering how God is calling us to love our neighbors.
