Missionary Trip to El Salvador

Missionary Trips are not for consumers.  If you want to have a cool experience meeting where you get to feel good about helping people, eat some new foods, and come back with stories to tell your book club, then don't come.  We are going to El Salvador to make disciples who make disciples.  It will be an adventure, but it may not be fun.  The Enemy doesn't like it.  He will fight us on all fronts.  He may even attack your family while you are gone.  This is not missionary tourism, this is a war for the souls of men.  Don't go for an experience.  Go for the Kingdom of God.

First Sunday

On the First Sunday of every month, all of our house churches come together at Nordson Depot (671 Franklin Ave in Amherst) for a combined worship service at 10am.  It's not a typical worship service.  We drink coffee and fellowship for a while before we get started.  We sit at round tables together to make sure that everyone gets to connect.  We usually sing a few songs (lyrics projected on a screen).  Then pastor Dan shares a short message (15-20 minutes).  After that, we discuss the sermon at our tables.  We usually take communion after discussion and then sing another song.  We don't normally pass an offering plate, but we have a box in the back in case people want to give.  You can also give online.  After the last song, most people hang out for a while as we slowly make our way out.

Baptisms

Baptisms

Baptism is an outward proclamation of an inward decision to follow Jesus. If you have trusted Jesus, you are in.  Baptism is simply an outward proclamation of an inward decision to follow Jesus.  It doesn't save you; Jesus does.  However, it is really important.  Don't wait around to get baptized.  Have the person who led you to Christ dunk you in some water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19-20) or contact us (dan@restorationamherst.org) to set up a time to get baptized. You don't have to have everything together to get baptized.  In fact, you shouldn't wait until your life is together.  The only requirement is that you trust Jesus.  Are you in? 

We are going to meet at Lakeview Park to baptize anyone who wants to publicly proclaim their commitment to follow Jesus.  Invite your friends.  Tell the world.  The Kingdom of God has come near.

First Sunday (Monthly Combined Worship Service)

First Sunday (Monthly Combined Worship Service)

First Sunday Worship Service May 1st at 10am.  Join us for fellowship, worship, teaching, discussion, and the presence of the Holy Spirit.  

At Restoration, our primary ministry is individual disciple-making.  Every disciple makes disciples.  However, Paul reminds us in Hebrews 10:24-25 that meeting together is important for encouragement.  He says that we are to think up ways to stir one another to love and good works.  Contrary to a lot of thinking about church, we don't come together to fulfill a duty.  Also, our coming together isn't the primary means of evangelism.  We come together to encourage one another as we continue making disciples, meeting needs, and fighting the good fight of faith.  We do this primarily by meeting together in homes and other places for worship, prayer, communion, food, fellowship, etc.  

However, once a month we all of the house churches come together to be encouraged in larger numbers.   At this First Sunday gathering, we drink coffee, tell stories, and celebrate Jesus.  We sing and hear a sermon, but we also cary our tradition of ministering to one another at our tables.  It's good!  See you then!
