It’s all part of our goal as a church to be renewed by the gospel, developing ourselves and others as Jesus-loving, mission-pursuing disciples.

Step Into Renewal

What is a Renew Group?

Renew Groups provide a gospel-renewal experience that encourage and equip us to love God, love people, and love Annapolis. It’s the best place to get connected to other people seeking after Christ, and is a safe place to study Scripture together; grow in your experience of God’s grace; and increase your passion for making disciples beyond the walls of our church.

Join a Group

Hosting Renew has been a great opportunity for us to fellowship with other believers and get to know our church family better. The curriculum is also encouraging and equipping to delve deeper in your faith.

Sarah DriftmierChurch Member

One of the greatest gifts of Renew is that kids from outside of the church came in and we just saw the Lord use this study to grow them deeper in their faith. It was such a great tool to disciple brand new believers.

Megan EricksonAssistant Director of High School Ministry

I’ve just seen God’s joy exuded from the fellowship and all of the different brothers and sisters in Christ to me and to each other. And it’s been a phenomenally encouraging and uplifting experience.

High School Student

It’s been marvelous, and especially for our age group that kind of gets settled in whatever way we get settled. It shakes you up and gets you going again. I was ministered to by people I taught in Sunday school. I have seen a freshness and awakening and interest in each other.

Ruth McClainChurch Member

The level of transparency and sharing and love for one another has been very motivating. The questions in the Renew curriculum are the best questions I have ever seen—deep and thought provoking.

John CavallaroDirector of High School Ministry
