OUR MISSIONS PROGRAMS
"Go into all the world and preach
the gospel to every creature..."
~ Mark 16:15 NIV
Evangelism is a priority at Restoration. Our mission program is rooted in three key principles (1) love, (2) passion, (3) action.
We work to reach across the table to family and friends, across the street to neighbors, across the community to colleagues and across the world to those who have never heard the Gospel. ...All with the goal of sharing the Lord's will for salvation as stated in the Great Commission (Matthew 28: 18-20).
Fall 2019 Missions
We continue to collect items for Blessing Bags to support missions work in the North Side of Pittsburgh where many of our neighbors suffering with poverty, abuse and addiction. Help us fill bags with basic necessities, especially as the weather conditions turn cold and damp and holidays serve as a reminder of loss. As we deliver these bags to the homeless in partnership with Light of Life missions, we satisfy spiritual nurturing and introduce people to the compassion of Jesus.
You're invited to pick up a brush for art therapy. Join us at every Thursday at 6:00 p.m. for rock-painting. We leave the colorful rocks in different spots throughout the community where our neighbors can find them, and find encouragement.
We are building Kitchen Baskets to help encourage and support newly homed women who complete Bethlehem Haven's programs. Bethlehem Haven provides shelter and a range of supportive services to thousands of homeless women, encouraging them to take an active approach in their plan of action to achieve a successful and rewarding outcome.
We sponsor Ryan Franklin and Team Expansion through a Food & Fuel Fundraiser. Bless Ryan with gift cards to Walmart, Kroger, Shell and Pivot, as well as monetary donations.
Edgar Rodriguez, leader of Restoration's Spanish ministry is traveling the United States to share the message of Jesus. His travels will take him to multiple states, multiple congregations and multiple heritages. Please pray for Edgar as he meets new people with the message of salvation.
In September, we welcomed Jim Wallace of Christian Appalachian Project, taking up a love offering to meet the needs of our neighbors in Appalachia. Click here to learn more about CAP.
Our Missions team selects a new mission to sponsor every month. The money earned supports the efforts of missionaries at home and abroad. Please pray for the men and women who are leading Restoration's mission work, and for those in the mission field making sacrifices in order to reach the masses with the Lord's message.
