As we get ready to launch RESTORATION CHURCH – MONTICELLO, we are burdened to REACH into the COMMUNITY. In fact, God has laid it on our hearts that EVERYTHING we do should be COMMUNITY focused.
We want the COMMUNITY to know that they are LOVED. So, from our very beginnings as a CHURCH, we want our FINGERPRINT to show God’s LOVE in everything we do. The old saying reigns TRUE “They don’t CARE how much we KNOW until they KNOW how much we CARE”.
We want to be a CHURCH that is KNOWN for LOVING and SERVING the COMMUNITY. What this looks like practically is that no MATTER what we do, we will be serving the community. If we are raising money for a project, we will give some of the proceeds to a local community outreach. If we have a church picnic, we will collect food for a local shelter. If we have a Christmas party, we will collect unwrapped gifts for local families. If we have a building program, we will also build a community playground.
We also want to do more than just GIVE, we want to get INVOLVE and INVEST into our community. This will be the FINGERPRINT of RESTORATION CHURCH, we will be a CHURCH that is known for it’s LOVE… GOD’s LOVE.
“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples” – John 13:35 NLT
