Life together at Restoration is shaped by this core value:
The Gospel is catalyzed by community.
Community is the means God uses to shape, refine, and press us into the image of Christ. You can listen to lots of sermons and know lots of stuff but not be changed.
When we get together and wrestle with Scripture.
When we share what’s going on at work and in our home.
When we transparently ask tough questions.
When we celebrate the gifts, redemption, and mercy that others have received.
When we sin against each other and then forgive each other.
That’s when the Gospel becomes real. That’s when our character gets refined.
Community is an agent for grace.
That’s why we invite people to get into small groups 3 times a year. We call them trimesters. They last for 10-12 weeks. Every small group starts fresh and every small group is open for the 4 week registration period. Then every small group closes so that people can get to know each other, be committed to each other, and build friendships. Being in a Restoration small group is a short-term investment in your life-long companionship with Jesus.
They are starting again.
