What are groups?

Small gatherings of Christ followers meeting on their own, facilitated by a leader are not a new phenomenon. In fact, in the first few hundred years of the church, these kinds of groups were pretty much the only way to experience church. Luke describes this type of group in Acts 2:42-47, and throughout years of church history, the value of these groups hasn’t changed. At Restoration, we want to experience the same healthy, independently functioning, leader-facilitated small groups of people that Luke was describing 2,000 years ago.

At Restoration, we simply call them Groups. Our groups exist for three reasons: to connect, grow, and serve. We like to say the weekends at RCC are a big celebration but Groups during the week are where discipleship happens. Simply stated, our strategy for making disciples is through small groups.

You will find a combination of three elements present in any healthy Restoration Group:

  • Connection – Connecting to God and one another relationally. Participants naturally develop ways to care and support one another
  • Growth – Taking steps towards transformation into Christ’s likeness. Becoming more like Christ. All individuals grow….to be more of who God made them to be
  • Service – This means we are walking in practical obedience to the “one another” commands in Scripture. Love one another, forgive one another, submit to one another, carry one another’s burdens. Whether in the context of a group or within a broader scope of the community, service is an important part of Groups growth
