A Special Note
The current state of emergency throughout our nation has caused many churches to become more creative in the hope of maintaining community, biblical teaching and ministry to their family. Restoration Church is no exception. While we have been on Facebook Live or YouTube for Sunday Worship services for a while now, we are using it far more than ever before. We now have Wednesday Bible Study, Youth Service and Sunday School, as well as Children’s Ministry available for our church family. These services are broadcast live and remain available for viewing at any time after the original broadcast. The benefit is more people are receiving biblical teaching as the views continue through the week. What a blessing. Keep watching, and let us know if we can do anything to increase our impact!
On Line Giving
Since churches are not meeting, no offerings are being taken, and the financial burden on the church will increase significantly. Some Christians will withhold their financial gifts for reasons that seem justifiable to them, but there has never been an occasion in our lifetime in which faithful financial stewardship is more needed than it is right now.
You have many options to consider for practicing faithful financial stewardship at Restoration Church. You can send your gift in the mail, stop by and give in person during regular office hours, or consider a new option. We have added an online giving tab on the navigation bar of our website. We have partnered with Faithlife to give you the option to give online. The service is secure and convenient. There is a small fee for the service, and you can elect to pay the fee yourself, or just pay your normal amount and the church will cover the fee.
If you have any questions about how you can continue to be financially faithful, please feel free to contact the church, (757) 851-3625.
Elders, Deacons and Family Ministry
Since we are not meeting and will not see one-another face to face, we need to stay in contact through other means. It is my hope that we will stay in contact through our groups. Sunday School, Home Groups, Elder and Deacon Care groups, as well as just good old friendships, are the backbone of community. Find time each day to reach out to someone you know. A phone call, email, Facebook message or a few minutes on FaceTime could be a real encouragement to someone feeling isolated or lonely. We are a body and a family, let’s connect even
when it takes some creativity!
