Small Groups


Small Groups at Restore Church are designed to help you rise higher in life as a follower of Jesus. These are environments where we have fun, learn together and grow in our faith. It’s in these smaller gatherings where we have opportunities to build community and experience the positive change that comes through genuine Christian friendships. (Ephesians 4:16/Acts 2:46-47).


What Small Groups are offered? There are a mix of Bible studies, classes, simple gatherings with friends and other fun outings. Our goal is to offer something for everyone at Restore Church, including married couples, families, men, women and students.

Where do Small Groups meet? Our Small Groups meet in homes, public places and at Restore Church.

When do Small Groups meet? Small Groups meet throughout the year. Our current session began the week of February 15, 2021 and will run through the spring. Our next session will begin the week of June 7, 2021.
