Just because we're labeled "Adult" doesn't mean we've stopped growing. In fact, these years can be some of the most fruitful and transformational. We've therefore created a number of environments that will help you in whatever stage of adulting you're in. Groups, fellowship, studies and learning communities are an integral part of what we do. Getting into a "circle" will help you connect and grow.
Christian growth isn't natural. If left to ourselves we would become more self-centered, not more loving. Discipleship, or becoming like Jesus, is something that needs to be learned and practiced. All our groups, in some way, help you do just that.
Christian discipleship, simply put, is learning to become like Jesus. It's ultimately what we're driving everyone towards. Everyone begins somewhere, but getting in a smaller circle (as opposed to rows) where you can engage others and learn in community is essential to growth. As you become more like Christ, it is our hope that you'll begin again, now as a leader, and take others along on the journey.
Becoming like Jesus takes intention, it takes knowledge, commitment, discipline, community and practice. It is our hope that everyone, at some point, joins a 24 week (three, eight-week sessions), curriculum based growth group and be so inspired that by the end they'll start again while taking a group of friends through it too. Each trimester Starting Point, which focuses on the basics of the Christian faith, The Way, which helps us understand what following Jesus means, and The Practice, which brings it all down to earth and daily living, will be offered.
Groups of 6-12 that meet regularly to connect, care for one another and cultivate their relationship with God.
Women/mens groups that gather to learn and discuss a portion or book of scripture.
One of the best ways for you to connect is to begin serving. You'll not only serve the mission of Restoration but you'll also make great friends and have a lot of fun while doing it. Check out all the ways to help Restoration function from Sunday morning to helping to plan and implement great events to serving our community!
