Groups are an integral part of what we do at Restoration Church. We believe the greatest life change happens in the context of community so we put a lot of effort in to getting people into circles where they can connect with others, care for one another and be cared for and grow more into Jesus' likeness.
Each House Group consists of around 25 people who meet together weekly or bi-weekly in someone's house or at church. We believe that House Groups are great fit for you whether you are seeking God for the first time or you've been a Christian for a long time!
Half the night is spent doing large group activities such as eating, hanging out, playing games, a faith story from someone in the group, and brief recap of the previous week's message from pastor Ross (via video).
The other half of the night is spent in smaller (6-12 people) groups throughout the house. While the large group setting allows you to meet a lot of different people, the small groups allow you to get to know a few people really well.
We are becoming more and more isolated and alone in our culture every day. House Groups will help you meet great Christian friends AND help you grow in your faith!
Many people never sign up for normal church small groups because it's too intimidating to join a group of 6-10 people that you don't even know. Since House Groups have so many more people, they allow you to naturally find smaller groups of people that you can actually connect with and want to be with.
People are longing for churches where they can actually know people. Even as Restoration Church has grown, House Groups provide you with a "small church" of 25 people who you can know well, grow with, and be cared for by.

It is our hope that every person who calls Restoration Church home will choose to prioritize community in house groups. We understand, however, that there are seasons where this isn't manageable. We've therefore created additional contexts where you can connect, care for others and be cared for and grow to be more like Jesus.
