We planted Restoration City Church around three main ideas:
- Live Through Jesus
- Live In Community
- Live For Restoration
Those three statements are going to anchor our journey for a really long time and I want to encourage you to lean into them as much as possible if you’re part of the Restoration City family. In all fairness, they’re biblical values, so I think you should lean into them even if you aren’t a part of Restoration City!
One of the highlights of this past week for me was sitting on the floor in my living room on Tuesday evening for our Community Group’s weekly meeting. By the way, I was on the floor because there weren’t any more seats available; the room was packed! And I loved every minute of it. There is literally no one, other than Laura, in our Community Group who I knew this time last year. It’s amazing to me how God has taken a group of strangers and turned us into a family. I love that the family keeps growing – we had two new people join us this week. I love walking through life with these people, opening God’s Word together, praying together and encouraging one another. I love that our interaction isn’t limited to Tuesday evenings – the encouraging emails during the week, random dinners, coffees, hangouts and concerts are some of the sweetest benefits of living in community.
This past week, 70 people attended one of our five Community Groups. That’s pretty awesome! But it also means we have room for another 20-25 people to join a Community Group. It also means we need more leaders to step up and plant new Community Groups so we can keep inviting others to join us in community.

You were not made to live life alone. Community might seem risky but it’s what you were made to enjoy.
