    Sunday Services

    Join us for worship every Sunday @ 11am! You can do that in person, or via our livestream.


    For the next two Sundays (9/20 and 9/27), we will be meeting outside in the grassy lot beside the PO. Please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on! You will also want to bring your Bible, and maybe an umbrella to provide some shade. This Sunday looks like it will be a little chilly, so bring a jacket!


    Starting the first Sunday in October (10/4), we will begin meeting indoors again. We'll send more information regarding indoor services as that date gets closer.


    There is no need to register for our outdoor services, HOWEVER, if it rains this Sunday then we will meet indoors. Due to COVID-19, we have limited the number of people inside the PO to 75, and we will be arranging seats so that they are appropriately spaced out. If you are planning to attend if we meet indoors due to inclement weather, please register using the link below so we can plan accordingly.

    ReadRestore Women's Ministry

    Restore Women,


    This is a reminder of our Women's Bible Study, today, Wednesday, February 1st at 6:30 pm. The gathering will be at the Glandon's house (1451 Pingree St, Detroit, 48206, Upstairs).


    We ask that you make attending each month a priority as it will be an encouraging time together as sisters to be in God's Word, to pray together and fellowship. We see Wednesday evenings as a launching pad for all other women's ministry opportunities we will be doing in the upcoming year.


    In preparation, we will be working through the book "Disciplines of a Godly Woman" by Barbara Hughes (https://www.amazon.com/Disciplines-Godly-Redesign-Barbara-Hughes/dp/1433537915/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1H06E77NAYIVW&keywords=disciplines+of+a+godly+woman&qid=1670253543&sprefix=disciplines+of+a+godly+woma%2Caps%2C675&sr=8-1

    I also heard you can download the audio for free on Hoopla :)


    Below is the breakdown of what we will cover each month:

    January: Soul (chapter 1)

    February: Character

    March :Relationships

    April: Ministry

    May: Grace


    More details to come of opportunities to grow together, but we wanted to send the book out to you so that you can make sure to have it, and if you have time - to begin reading. If purchasing the book is at all a financial burden for you, please reach out to Sarah Bovan or Katie Haber and we will make sure you are able to get a copy. 


    Please be in prayer, we are looking forward to growing together in how to live out the calling God has on each of our lives and to grow in the disciplines laid out in this book. 


    One final request - we want to make sure our sister Julia is able to attend Wednesday nights. If anyone is interested in helping with picking her up, please contact Sarah Bovan (313-410-1509). Thank you so much!!

      Good morning Restore family!


      Just a reminder that today is the last day of early bird registration at $25 for our upcoming conference. You can register here and check out a few videos here and here. Many of you have already signed up and we are hoping everyone can make it!


      “It is today as it was in the Reformers’ days. Decision is needed. Here is the day for the man, where is the man for the day? We who have had the gospel passed to us by martyr hands dare not trifle with it, nor sit by and hear it denied by traitors, who pretend to love it, but inwardly abhor every line of it . . . Look you, sirs, there are ages yet to come. If the Lord does not speedily appear, there will come another generation, and another, and all these generations will be tainted and injured if we are not faithful to God and to His truth today. We have come to a turning-point in the road. If we turn to the right, mayhap our children and our children’s children will go that way; but if we turn to the left, generations yet unborn will curse our names for having been unfaithful to God and to His Word.” (Charles Haddon Spurgeon)


      Also, this Sunday is the first Sunday of the month which means we will be eating another delicious breakfast together at 9:30! Don't miss the opportunity to eat and greet! And we'd love to have you come a little early for our 9:00-9:20 prayer meeting.


      Grateful for you!

      Pastor Mike

            Good snowy morning Restore!


            I heard Sunday was a wonderful worship service - AMEN!


            I spent some time in my DID GOD REALLY SAY? conference kick off text this AM & man I wish I could preach this message tonight!


            With registration rising we may need to move to a venue larger than our building. If you are considering attending it would be a great help to us if you could register so we can logistically plan accordingly. Plus you have a final week to capitalize on $25 early bird registration!


            You can register HERE.


            This conference is designed to equip each believer to be Biblically faithful and truly loving in your church, workplace, classroom, neighborhood, and family.


            "But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God’s word, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ." (2 Corinthians 2:14-17)

              REMINDER OF PRAYER AND FASTING

              Brothers and Sisters, 


              As announced on Sunday, please join us today, Wednesday, as we pray and fast throughout the day from morning until we meet for our gathering at 6:30pm at the P.O.


              We will have a time of teaching, worship, and prayer and break fast together afterwards! If this is your first time fasting or haven't done so in a while, try fasting 1 meal and working up towards fasting the whole day in future months. 


              Let us refrain from food, so that we can hunger for spiritual benefit in Christ! May we ask the Lord to make our outward, physical weakness and need - stir up a greater inward recognition of our need and dependence upon God. 


              3 Practical Tips: 

              1) Every time you think of food or feel a hunger pang, pray that you will hunger for God more than food. 

              2) When you feel the flesh manifesting in irritability or anger due to not being able to eat, pray that the Lord will help you mortify the flesh and help you live by the Spirit. 

              3) Have a verse handy to chew on during the day. For example, Psalm 73:26 - My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. 


              If you are interested in providing a meal for the body in the coming months for our Prayer and Fasting Wednesdays, please see the Dahlbergs! 


              Hope to see you this Wednesday. May God bless our body in our time of seeking Him diligently.
