be rich

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant or to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.  Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 1 Timothy 6:17-18


It's really that simple.  We're called to trust in the God who provides us richly with all we need and as a practical application of that trust, do good, be generous and share what we've been given.  "Be Rich" is our regular opportunity to do that in fun, creative and practical ways.  


We hope that 100% of the Restoration Church family will partner with us through GIVING, Donating, Serving or any combination of those!  

 

  • free diaper give away!

    If you are in need of diapers, we have an opportunity for you this weekend!  Over the course of November, Restoration has been collecting 20K diapers as part of their Be Rich initiative and THIS Saturday, December 5th, 2020 from 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. (or until we run out of diapers) they will be hosting the 2nd annual Diaper Give to bless local families in a tangible way!  


    You can take advantage of receiving FREE diapers in a touchless, drive-thru Diaper Give Away.  Here's what you'll need to know: 


    Drive up alongside our building on Lakeside Drive.  We recommend taking Pinewood Drive around Walt Disney Elementary School and coming down Lakeside Drive.  Once in line, as you approach our property, you will be greeted by a friendly volunteer who will gather your information, including what size diapers you are requesting.  Have your phone ready because we will have a QR code to scan with your phone's camera which will lead you to our simple form.  If you don't have a phone handy, don't worry - we'll have paper forms available.  Once you've filled out the form and you are in the driveway in front of our building, pop your trunk or unlock your car door and another one of our volunteers will place your diapers (and wipes!) into your car and you are free to go!  


    For everyone's safety and benefit, all Restoration volunteers will be wearing masks and regularly sanitizing.  We look forward to serving our community in this way on Saturday!  #Godlovesyouandsodowe

  • footwear and clothes

    Gather up your oft-unused footwear and clothing and bring them to Restoration by December 6th.  One of our partner ministries, Good Stuff Thrift is in need of these items.  They'll sell them at a reasonable and fair price and provide several local ministries, including TreeHouse here at Restoration, with funds and resources they need to thrive! 

  • the giving tree

    The Giving Tree is our annual opportunity to bless those in our community who might have a hard time providing a happy Christmas to their family.  The "cost" of taking a card is roughly $75, give or take.  Simply take a lettered card off of the tree (when it's up in early November), indicate which card you took and wait for further instruction!   

  • homeless blessing bags

    We love serving our homeless community.  One of the ways we can do that is by providing bags of practical items to those who come to our shared meal each month.  It's also nice to keep a bag or two in your car for when you see someone in need on a corner.  Making the bags are easy: simply get a gallon sized ziplock bag and fill it with packaged snacks (crackers, chips, cookies, tuna snack pack, apple sauce, granola bards, hard candy, etc.), a bottle of water, a pair of warm socks, wet wipes, chapstick, a pack of tissues and a pack of Hot Hands or gloves).  You can of course add other things.  All of these items can be found at the $1 store.  If you'd like to participate, we ask that you make 6-8 bags and drop them off in the shopping cart in the sanctuary.  We'll add a few additional items and hand them out to our homeless community.
