This Week At Renovation
A Jazzy Christmas Is The Best Christmas
Many things are true about Renovation Church; one of the truest is our collective love of music. Last Christmas, we decided to look at the redemptive threads and history surrounding our favorite Christmas songs. We are continuing that tradition this year with a bit of a twist. This year, we are putting a jazz spin on the Christmas songs and several other surprises that will make this a unique community experience.
Jazz Christmas begins Sunday, December 11th @ 10:00a & 11:45a
You might ask yourself, “I love that pastor, but what about Christmas Day? It’s on a Sunday.”
I hear you, and my immediate response is, “Don’t you love Jesus?” But I only respond that way because I am full of mischief.
We believe in being present with family and friends on Christmas morning. We got presents to open, French Toast to make, and parents to see. So to celebrate Christmas together, we will have corporate worship on Christmas Eve @ 6:00p.
Yes, that means that Sunday, December 25th, we will NOT have in-person corporate worship. Pastor Léonce has recorded a special family devotional that will be available on our Youtube page.
“So what about the next Sunday, Pastor? It’s New Year’s Day!”
Have you ever heard of a watch night service?
I’m just playing. We will NOT have in-person corporate worship on Sunday, January 1, 2023. In its place, Renovation Online will have a pre-recorded stream at 10:00a and be available on-demand after that on our Youtube page.

Obedience – The Hard Pill by Hope Kirkendall
A couple of weeks ago I was leaving band rehearsal and heading home down Cobb parkway. Now, let me tell you, in the two years that I have lived here, I have never known a crazier stretch of road than Cobb Parkway. People seem to think it’s the freeway, driving way over the speed limit, running lights, and I can’t count how many accidents I have seen on that road!
As I pulled onto Cobb, there was a pickup truck behind me that was apparently in a hurry to get somewhere fast, and he stayed right on my rear. He wouldn’t even try to go around but proceeded to tailgate me for a good stretch of my drive! I thought for sure I would be rear-ended.
