Less than a week after a merger with Hope Church, Renaissance Church in Jamestown is once again reaching out to other area churches to come together to benefit the underprivileged residents of the Triad.
On Saturday, Jan 15, Renaissance Church will host representatives from 50 churches throughout the Triad to establish a network that will distribute free food and household items to those in need. Pastor Paula Bost, Renaissance Church’s executive director will oversee the operations of this new association.
According to Bost, “We’re very excited about bringing together all sorts of churches from the area with a common goal and vision of showing love to our neighbors.”
Under this plan, Renaissance Church will serve as a warehouse hub where associated churches – called pods – can come to receive food and household items to take back to their churches and distribute to their community. Each member church will be encouraged to distribute items as they see fit.
The distribution hub will use local food donations as well as household goods provided by CityServe, a national network that provides bulk goods from Amazon, Costco, Walmart and other sources with the intention of empowering local churches to serve their communities.
At launch, churches will come to gather items from a small warehouse that is part of the Renaissance Church building on Harvey Road in Jamestown, but it is the goal of Bost and other organizers to find a larger warehouse off-site as soon as possible. Bost is reaching out to owners of vacant retail and warehouse spaces in the area to donate space. Anyone interested in donating space can reach out to Pastor Paula Bost at PaulaBost@RENtriad.church
Renaissance Church was founded in High Point in 2008 by lead pastor Jason Goins and moved to Jamestown in 2015. Community outreach and assisting those in need has always been a priority for Renaissance Church which has operated a weekly Food Pantry since 2010. The Renaissance Food Bank distributes food every Saturday beginning at 9a.m. from the church at 5114 Harvey Road in Jamestown. On January 9, 2022, Hope Church in High Point merged with Renaissance Church with Hope’s lead pastor Randall Reece taking a Teaching Pastor role at Renaissance Church as well as joining the board. Renaissance Church meets every Sunday at 10a.m. More information about Renaissance Church can be found at www.RENtriad.church.
