Fall Retreat 2020

We have four events for you during this special fall weekend. The deadline to register is Wednesday, October 7.


Praying Like Jesus by Praying the Psalms — Friday, October 9 at 7:30 pm

David Taylor, Associate Professor of Theology and Culture at Fuller Theological Seminary, will lead us through “Praying Like Jesus by Praying the Psalms.” In this seminar, we’ll learn how the psalms teach us to pray like Jesus prayed.

From David Taylor,

“In light of the duress that all of us have experienced over the past half-year and in view of the stresses that will only increase as we head to the end of the year, I think many of us are struggling in our prayer life, resorting to perfunctory habits or succumbing to despair or praying only survivalist prayers. The psalms can help.”

You can see a brief welcome from David Taylor on our YouTube channel.

We hope you’ll join us for this time of teaching, Q&A with David Taylor, and small group breakout sessions, from the comfort of your home. Registering for the seminar helps us plan how many small group leaders we need.


Bonfires around the DMV — Saturday, October 10 at 6:30/7:30/8:30pm

Craving a s’more? We thought so. We have over fifteen bonfire sites for you to choose from on Saturday evening. Kids are welcome at many of the sites so this can be a family affair! Each host has carefully thought about how many people they can have socially distanced in their yard; all those details can be found on our Sign Up Genius.


YouTube Live + Sunday Worship — Sunday, October 11 at 10 am

David Taylor will be with us again, preaching from Matthew, continuing our sermon series this fall. Sign up to attend in-person or log on to YouTube Live.


Picnic at Oak Grove Park — Sunday, October 11 at 12 pm

Bring your own everything and gather with your Restoration friends after the worship service for a socially distanced picnic lunch in the park.


Ready to register? We thought so. The deadline to register is Wednesday, October 7.

You can sign up for everything (except to attend Restoration on Sunday morning, which can be done here) using this Sign Up Genius.
