Preparing for our move back! Volunteer Training Sept 6. If you are presently a liturgical volunteer or desire to become one (greeting, setting the altar, serving communion, reading, etc.), you need to come to one of the trainings on Saturday, Sept. 6 at either 9:30 am or 1:30 pm at 1815 North Quincy St, Arlington, VA. This is a simple, fun, and flexible way to plug in and serve the community of Restoration. Have questions? Contact Matt by going to restorationarlington.org/contact and selecting “Volunteer.”
Desiring to build relationships? Join a Small Group: If you ask many people what their favorite thing about Restoration is, they will say “Small Groups.” We each commit to a small group for 10 weeks and anticipate God’s movement in our lives. Sign up for one today, restorationarlington.org/connect/small-groups/small-group-locations/.
Impossible things: Ever said yes to something you thought would be impossible and been blown away by God’s grace? Thats what it’s like to be a kids’ small group leader. C’mon! Talk with Louise about joining a team of folks who get a front row seat to the work that God is doing in and through them and others. Go to restorationarlington.org/contact select “Children’s Ministry.”
