Introducing Small Group #13

Madrecki

As our Small Groups Sign-Up’s get started this winter, we wanted to tell you about a few of the options. Here are a few words from Tom & Priya Madrecki about the small group they are hosting this winter (Small Group #13)

We’re a sermon-based small group with a snack and story-sharing approach. We’ll meet weekly at our cozy Capitol Hill row-home on Wed PM at 7 PM to share stories and break bread together.

Expect to “keep it real” and occasionally supplement sermon discussion with some really short readings. Note: we have a rather playful husky (Ava), who is likely to make appearances / greet you.
Thanks!
Tom

Introducing Small Group #1

Eberhardt

As our Small Groups Sign-Up’s get started this winter, we wanted to tell you about a few of the options. Here are a few words from Lorene Eberhardt about a small group she is helping to host this winter (Small Group #1)

Small group on Sundays?!
Community is important.  And as parents of young-ish kids, we crave it.  We admit sometimes it’s just so we can have a two minute conversation that doesn’t involve telling your son not to take his sister’s tiara, or warning them to stay off the back of the couch.  There’s a place and a need in our lives for kid-free spaces, but we’ve found that trying to make small group one of those places means we end up with less adults than we’d like to see.  Weeknights can be a challenge for families with working parents, between arrangements for childcare, feedings, and bedtimes, and the general hassle that can come with getting back into your car after coming home and changing out of those stifling work clothes.
Don’t get us wrong – this effort is TOTALLY worth it, and a model that most Restoration small groups follow for GREAT reason.  We have done it ourselves, and look forward to the days when we can do it again.
For now, though, our circumstances dictate that we try something new.  We’re planning to meet on Sundays after the 9 am, so something starting around 11:30 am, give or take a few minutes depending on how many donuts are available for snack in the fellowship hall, AND kids of all ages will be welcome! We’ll wrap up before 1:30 pm so any littles can get home for naps.
A few key details you should know about if you are interested in signing up:
  1. Childcare will be provided, for babies up through whatever age you think they still need watching.
  2. FOOD (i.e. brunch!) will also be provided.  It won’t always or even usually be fancy, but we’ll get the kids fed first then send them off to play while the grownups eat, discuss the sermon we just heard, and pray together. Maybe I should have led with that.
  3. We’re hoping to rotate hosting locations.  Main options will be at the Mohrs’ (Arlington) or Eberhardts’ (McLean), but we’d be grateful for others who are willing to let us crash for a couple hours in your living and play areas.
  4. You are WELCOME to sign up to join us even if you don’t have kids.  Please just be aware there will be at least 5 little ones (between the Mohrs & Eberhardts) around.  This is meant to a group where folks of all life stages who love food and Jesus can come together.
Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or want more details!
Thanks,
Lorene

Sanctus (Holy and Hosanna)

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross – we will play the first chorus of “God I Look to You” after this

Praying for you as 2019 begins

Dear Restoration,

Happy New Year!!

Each year, in January, I take a few days to pray for Restoration and to plan our year of preaching.  I look forward to this time to connect with God about you and what He is doing in our church.  This year it will happen from Jan 8-11.

I would be honored to pray for the needs and concerns that are most pressing to you.   Would you share them with me, here?  Thank you so much.  Your confidentiality is important and I will be the only one who sees these requests.  You have a choice to share them anonymously, but I prefer to pray for you by name.

This is the link where you can share your prayer request.

The form will close on January 8, 2019.  Please take a moment to respond, soon!

“I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was give you in Christ Jesus…”  1 Corinthians 1:4

See you on Sunday,
-David
