A deeper relationship with the Lord and deeper connections with other church-goers are waiting for you. Find the next weekends here.

What is Renewal?

Renewal is an opportunity to break away from worldly concerns and your busy life to focus on your relationship with the Lord and be a part of Spirit-filled community. Renewal has four parts:
  • The process begins with an overnight weekend retreat that helps people take the next step in their spiritual journey with a focus on their relationship with God.
  • People are then invited to serve on the next giving team—to participate in team formation, preparation, and spiritual direction. The focus is on a small group praying, working, learning and fellowshipping together. The team formation takes about six months.
  • The new giving team then leads the next Renewal weekend—a genuine experience of discipleship. The focus is on meeting, serving and ministering to small group of men or women.
  • The final part is engaging the team members in searching for the Lord's call to what is next in church life, and sending them into other ministries within the church and the community. 

Who Should Attend?

All adults, 18 or older (and out of high school), who are followers of Jesus, are invited. Teams are gender-specific, made up of people at various stages in their walk with the Lord. If you have already gone through Renewal in the past, you are invited to attend again. If you are a part of another Christian church and are in need of fellowship and renewal of your faith, you are welcome.

What Happens at Renewal?

Renewal weekends bring together men and women in a casual Christian atmosphere of sharing and dialogue about how God works in people’s lives. You will be served by the previous Renewal team in an open and warm setting and invited to participate to the extent that you are comfortable. The Renewal weekend begins Saturday morning and concludes Sunday afternoon. Renewal participants are overnight guests at UALC. The cost is $65 for the weekend which includes meals and materials.

When are the Weekends and How Do I Register?

Renewal weekends are offered at various times throughout the year.
The next Women's Weekend is April 27-28. Register here.
