The Restoration Growth Equation:
Pour, Restore, Do It Once More
Each day is an opportunity to pour into people and restore the broken parts of our world. The result is a growing body of believers who proudly worship and proclaim the word of God. Thus, pour and restore is ALWAYS a great thing to do more and more! Here are a few ways Restoration Church has poured into its community and experienced positive growth as a result.
Restoration Church held a site visit at City of Refuge, a non-profit organization dedicated to community development efforts that lead to the stability and sustainability of the local community. The enclosed campus provides worship, education, housing, employment, and counseling services on a daily basis. This site visit was not only informative, but inspirational. This experience poured into Restoration Team, which empowers the church with specific resources to help others.
Restoration gathered fifty volunteers to host a pancake breakfast at Safehouse, a shelter for the homeless in downtown Atlanta. The volunteers helped with every aspect of the event including preparing the food, inviting the homeless, and fellowship together. Over eighty individuals were fed as a result of these efforts. The most powerful response came from one man who said, "You guys made me feel like a real person. Thanks."
As of March 31, 2014, Restoration Church is thankful for the work being done with a total of ____ people. Stay tuned for more details as Restoration continues to grow.
Restoration volunteered at the Hapeville Recreation Center for a second time to assist with the basketball league playoffs. Fifteen volunteers worked together to referee games, operate the concession stands, assist with traffic control, and distribute free spirit gear provided by Restoration Church. It was a great opportunity to engage with the community while supporting youth as they demonstrate great talent.
