Life Groups/Spiritual Formation
Life Groups are Restoration’s way to help more people live a new life in Christ, through the filling and empowerment of the Holy Spirit. This is the true community Jesus talked about and happens best when we create places where we can be honest, open and share life together. When this place is created we can laugh, cry, celebrate our accomplishments, support each other through our struggles, pray, learn and so much more together.
Our spiritual formation is not a segmented program, but woven in the fabric of all we do: worship gatherings, life groups, and our involvement in restoring what’s broken in the world (compassion, mercy and justice). The hope is that one day we will become people who’s very character reflects the heart and character of the one true God; that we would be shaped in such a way as to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with Him (Micah 6:8).
Leaders are being sought out and group members wanted to build many close-knit groups to live together in community. Email Eric Langmaack at EricLangmaack@restorationcov.org to learn more, discuss the possibility of leading a group or to be connected with a group.
