Restoration, we got a lot going on tonight at the church. Hope to see a lot of you here!
Weekly Prayer on Tuesdays [W-POT TM pending]
Each Tuesday at 7:30, we have an opportunity to pray with other people. Each week has a different theme. Tonight we focus on our worship of Jesus and the places we need healing– physically, emotionally, spiritually. The prayer time is informal but guided by the lovely Liz Gray and Matt Hoppe. If you want to learn to pray… if you want to worship with others… if you are hurting… this is a great opportunity for you.
Confirmation Small Group
Our 3 week confirmation small group begins tonight at 7:30 at the church. Wondering what confirmation is? This will help. In our tradition, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to stand before their community and confirm the vows that were made on their behalf at baptism. If you were baptized as a baby, this is your chance to do that. We also believe that everyone is called to use their gifts to strengthen the Body of Christ and build the Kingdom of God. When our bishop prays for you during the confirmation service and asks God to fill you with His Spirit, he is praying for you to use your gifts in the venues to which you have been called. This is your chance to do that.
This little small group will meet on March 6, 13, and 27. It is necessary to attend in order to be confirmed on April 22. I’d love to have you. There is always room for another…
On Sundays, we have about 50 volunteers who serve at our three services. Everything from reading the Scriptures, to ushering, to greeting, to serving the Eucharistic elements. We would love for everyone who calls Restoration home to have the opportunity to serve our community as a Sunday Liturgical Volunteer [SLV– TM pending]. Tonight at 7:30 is another chance to receive simple instruction in how to serve. It is a necessary prior step to being a SLV. Erin, liturgical guru, will be training you this month.
So lots of people will be wandering the green carpet tonight at 7:30. We’ll have snacks, singing, good Bible study, helpful training, heartfelt prayers. There is something for everyone.
