1 John 3:18 says, “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” This is the secret to living an incredible life.

Why Love Does?

We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus and to bring His love to the world. How do we do that? 1 John 3:18 says we do in “actions and in truth”. Love Does is about challenging us to bring God’s love to a world starving for it. What if each of us showed kindness, brought hope, or gave support to someone around us? How much of a difference could we make? How incredible could life be?

Each week there will be an opportunity to put love into action. See below for what’s happening each week at Restoration for the Love Does series!

Week 1

The Kindness Project

For one month, chose a person that you will pray for, do something kind for, say something kind to, and speak kindly of, daily.

We will be handing out Kind Bars as a jumpstart for a Kindness Project, and EVERYONE is getting one, even our Kidz, so get the whole family involved!

Week 2

Love the Little Ones

Gather school supplies for McKinley Thatcher Elementary school, and bring them back the next week. There are families that cannot afford to buy school supplies, so by donating items to the school, these families don’t have to worry. Download the list here. Please drop off school supplies at Restoration
by July 28th.

Week 3

See the Unseen

Sponsor a child in India. Our friends Shaji and Beena are traveling to Denver from India to tell a little more of their story, and how we can impact of world, by helping children go to school who wouldn’t be able to otherwise.


Week 4

Be Before Do

One of Restoration’s church plants is Naya Life, a church that is reaching the refugees living in Denver. They run a store selling clothing to support the church and their pastors. Help keep the store going by donating gently used clothing and shoes. Please bring donated items to Restoration by August 11th.

Week 5

Listen to Someone Different

The Love Does book by Bob Goff is full of encouraging stories about love in action. This is an opportunity to give that book away to a friend that may be in need of encouragement. Another challenge is to get coffee or dinner with someone you might not typically, and to listen to them.
