Membership

At Restoration, our community is full of all kinds of folks from the curious to the convinced, those who’ve followed Jesus for years and others who are just beginning to explore what this church thing is all about. We love this diversity and think it’s one of the marks of a healthy church.

We also believe that for those who are committed to following Jesus, being committed to a church community is a crucial part of discipleship. That’s why we invite people to become members of Restoration.

What do members commit to and believe?

Restoration members make commitments to each other in order to create an environment in which people can experience love, practice forgiveness, and be challenged to grow deeper in their dependence on God.

We believe and are committed to the good news of the Gospel – that Jesus, in his life, death, and resurrection, offers us a fully reconciled relationship with God. We have been baptized with water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and believe that our rescue and deliverance from death and sin is found only through the unique, finished work of Jesus’ death and resurrection. The Gospel shapes everything we do as it is proclaimed in Word and Sacrament and lived out in community.

We intentionally give our time, talent, and treasure to the building of God’s Kingdom through Restoration and regularly participate in Restoration small groups.

If you’d like to be a member, here’s what you need to do:

  • Attend a Living God’s Story at Restoration dinner. We have these three to four times a year and host them in the fellowship hall. We’ll eat a delicious meal together, introduce you to other newcomers, and give you a chance to learn about who we are. And yes, even if you’re no longer new, you still need to come to the dinner if you want to be a member. Please RSVP.
  • Complete our membership form.
  • Meet with a clergy or staff member. This is a great way for us to get to know you.
  • Sign The Big Green Book. There’s something powerful about signing your name. Writing it down. This book holds all of our members’ names as well as all baptisms and weddings that have taken place.
