Holy Week offering: It’s our custom during Holy Week to donate all of the offerings we receive to an organization that cares for some of the world’s most vulnerable people. This year, we’re pleased to support the anti-trafficking work of International Justice Mission in Cambodia. We invite you to pray for IJM Cambodia and to give generously.
Register for a small group today. Almost everyone who worships with us on Sunday evenings is in a small group during the week. Tri2 groups begin the week of April 27 and run through the week of June 23. Register today: go to restorationarlington.org/connect.
New-to-Restoration Dinner: Are you new (or new-ish) to Restoration?

To RSVP, go to restorationarlington.org/connect.

Sat., Apr. 26: Morning: Join Steve for the Spring Fling 5k along the Potomac. Afternoon: Workshop on friendship evangelism—how do we talk about the difference Jesus makes?
