We believe Community Groups are the most effective way for developing gospel-centered disciples.  Our purpose is to provide a safe community for you to grow in relationship with GOD, to experience authentic fellowship with other believers, and to learn how to better follow JESUS on mission in everyday experiences of life.

Whether you consider yourself part of the Restoration Church family—or if you’re just checking out what it truly means to be a follower of JESUS—it is our desire that everyone would be an active member in one of these communities that bring life, healing and growth.

  • Kickoff will be the week of September 10th.
  • We are asking you to PRAYERFULLY consider which CG you believe the LORD is calling you to.
  • Once you make that decision, please CLICK HERE to utilize the online web form.  You may also contact the group leaders by phone, text, or in person to communicate your desire to join that group.  We are asking that you make a commitment to that group for the fall and spring.
  • We have a monthly format including a family meal and Bible studies using a sermon-based curriculum.
