Pray For Me Program

We're excited to offer a new way to partner with your student in their faith journey. We'll be establishing prayer partners for all interested middle school and high school students at Restoration Church. The prayer partners will commit to praying regularly for the student and will make monthly contact with the students via mail or text to encourage them and seek prayer requests. If you would like your student to participate, please sign up using the enclosed link. Please register by August 23rd so we can assign prayer partners.


 Thank you so much for your interest in our Youth Small Groups!  We have been blessed with so many students that we are filled to capacity right now.  We have an URGENT need of new small group leaders and drivers.  This will allow us to break our current groups into smaller sizes and reopen registration.  If you are interested in being a small group leader or a driver, please email


If your child did not get to register and would like to be placed on our small group waiting list, please register below.  You will be notified if more space becomes available.  Thank you for your patience!

CrossWalk is an updated approach to confirmation for middle schoolers, utilizing the insights of Just a Phase project researchers.


What will the CrossWalk gatherings look like this fall?

Other meeting dates are Sept 27, Oct 11, Oct 25, Nov 8, Nov 29, Jan 10, Jan 24, Feb 7, Feb 28, Mar 14 and Mar 28.


Fall meetings (Sept - Nov) will focus on social media and friendships.

Restoration Confirmation Cohorts

Confirmation Cohorts are open to 8th and 9th graders who attend Restoration Church. Cohorts will consist of 4-6 students and 2 adult leaders. They will be given the opportunity to learn about our church, grow in their faith and make faith decisions of their own. At the end of the cohort, each student will be able to attend the Discover Restoration class in the spring and join the church if they are ready. Cohorts will be held at Oak Knoll Middle School from 9:00-9:50 am on Sunday mornings, beginning on September 10th. They will run from September through November and then January through March. If you choose to register your child for this cohort, please note that they will be required to attend regularly. Students will be expected to arrive each week prepared and ready to participate. We will be using the book "Clear" by Chris Folmsbee in order to dive into their faith questions. The cost of the book is $10 and will be charged during registration.

Launch (grades 6-12; introduction band for all new youth musicians):  Launch is the perfect band for beginning musicians and tech specialists, and it is the starting point for all new musicians and tech members, no matter the skill level, before they are placed on a more advanced team. This team is adult led, but Launch students are also mentored by student leaders from the Generation worship team. All brand new members to Restoration’s youth worship teams start at Launch, where students learn musical and technical skills in a safe, encouraging environment. Sixth-grade youth worship team students are asked to spend at least one year in Launch before moving on to another team. Students who attend Launch and show advanced skills will be given the opportunity to move to another team that will better challenge them and help them grow. Students on the other youth worship teams who want extra training or want to try a new instrument or skill are welcome to attend Launch. Launch meets each Wednesday evening during the school year from 6:00-7:00 at the Libbys’ house (10081 Cool Spring Rd., Mechanicsville, VA 23116).


Generation (grades 7-12; intermediate and advanced skill levels):  Generation is intended to be the training ground where students with intermediate to advanced skills learn to work together as a team and lead worship. It is open to all student musicians and technicians in grades 7-12. Generation students get regular opportunities to put their skills to use at church and outreach events. Rehearsals are held during the school year each Thursday evening from 6:00-7:15 at the Libbys’ house (10081 Cool Spring Road, Mechanicsville, VA  23116).


Limitless (advanced skill levels):  Limitless operates on an invitation-only membership. All members from the previous year are invited to participate during the current year.  Other members will be added as positions become available and the need arises.  This team is for students who have had time to develop skills and are largely self-sufficient in the use of their musical or technical talents.  This advanced team is student led under adult supervision.  The goal of Limitless is to build a repertoire so that they are always ready to go into the community and bring worship music to places where it would not otherwise be available.  Rehearsals are the first and third Wednesday of every month during the school year from 7:15-8:30 at the Libbys’ house (10081 Cool Spring Road, Mechanicsville, VA  23116).


We believe in the God of restoration – a gracious God who loves us and calls us to share His life-restoring love and grace with others. With love, we embrace life together as we multiply deeper relationships in Christ.


Join us Sunday mornings for coffee and fellowship at 9:30. Worship at 10:00.
