Online Church Directory
Next Sunday, May 7th, we will begin the effort of creating Renovation's Instant Church Directory, an online way of connecting our Reno community. the basic information provided by each participating person and/or family can be obtained by a password given to a regular Renovation attendee or member. All information will be protected and stored on secure servers. Requested info will include: name, email, and zip code. This will allow the option of giving out any further information, if requested, by someone via email. The zip code will help identify what are of the Valley you reside. A photo will be option but helpful in making connections and building our Renovation community. Next Sunday, we will have a photo booth available at Dinner on the Grounds in the Gym. One of our three values is Community and this directory is an opportunity to aid in building on that value.
