The scriptures tell us that the Church is the Body of Christ, and like our physical bodies, it has lots of different parts (read: people) that do different things to uniquely meet the Body’s many needs. God has created each of us to occupy a unique place in his Church. Part of what that means is that he has a very special place carved out for you — not just in the big-picture Church, but in a local congregation, too.
In other words, there’s a place for you at Restoration. And we’d love to help you find it.
We recognize that in a church as big as ours, it can be hard to figure out just where you fit. You may not see the same people Sunday to Sunday. The social free-for-all of snack time after church may make you break out in hives (I call it “middle school lunch room syndrome”). You may simply just not know who to talk to ask your question or share a great idea you’ve had.
We may not be able to take care of all of the challenges, but we’d like to do what we can. One of the ways we’re doing that is with a little event we’re planning after the service tomorrow night (Sept. 15). Instead of the usual cheese-and-crackers outside, we’ll head down to the Friendship Hall for some dessert. (Yes, dessert before dinner. Kids, you’re welcome; parents, we apologize. Kind of.)
You’ll have a chance to learn who on staff is responsible for what. You’ll hear a couple of people share about how they found their place at Restoration, and what difference it has made in their life and their faith. Most of all, you’ll have a chance to chat with people who are involved in different aspects of Restoration life (small groups, prayer, kids’ ministry, etc.) and who are eager to talk with you and answer your questions.
So no matter how long you’ve been coming to Restoration, if you’ve ever wondered where you fit in, please join us tomorrow evening. We’d love to help you find your place here.
