Call or text 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
At Restoration, we want you to know that our church strives to be a place where God’s hope and healing can be experienced firsthand. For that reason, we have a Care Team that is ready to help guide you through transitions, to pray with you and to connect you with helpful resources. Through life experiences or formal education (or both), the Care Team is ready to be messengers of hope and healing even in the most difficult of circumstances. Give us a call or text at (612) 656-9320 and we will do everything we can to make sure you are cared for 24/7. Team members take turns answering messages and we prayerfully connect you with the person who would be a good match based on gender, life experience, schedule and other factors. If you would like to connect with a specific person, please let us know.
