Summer Connections

We will have multiple small community gatherings this summer and we are calling them Summer Connections. If you’re looking for ways to meet new people, this is a fun way to connect with each other in more informal ways. They are run by members or regular attenders of Renewal and are a great way to connect with people outside of your Community Group (CG) while CG’s take a break. Sign up for as many events as you like!

If you would like to host an event, please fill out this form

Center City Summer Connections

Did you know? Philadelphia’s Chinatown is over 150 years old! Join us for a walking tour of Chinatown to learn and see the rich history of the neighborhood where our congregation worships. Afterwards, we’ll take some time to talk about the proposed basketball arena threatening Chinatown. The walking tour should take about 1 hour. We’ll wrap up the evening with dinner and/or dessert!

Date/Time: 8/3 at 10am
Location: Southeast Asian Market at FDR Park

The Southeast Asian Market in FDR Park is a community of refugees and immigrant members who have called the Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) Park their home since the 1980’s. For 35+ years they have cultivated an open community space all their own, providing a cultural hub for social gatherings, sharing of ethnic cuisines and business opportunities through vending. Let’s support our local, immigrant community! PLEASE BRING CASH.
