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!
