Pray For Me Program

We're excited to offer a new way to partner with your student in their faith journey. We have assigned adult prayer partners for all interested middle school and high school students at Restoration Church. The prayer partners commit to praying regularly for the student and making 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 contact Jen Williams at jwilliams@restorationrva.org

Winter 2018 meetings dates will be Jan 10, Jan 24, Feb 7, Feb 28, Mar 14 and Mar 28 and will focus on dating/relationships and the power of words. Contact Jen Williams at jwilliams@restorationrva.org if you’d like your child to participate.

 

Youth Small Groups meet in the community during the week before school. We have been blessed with so many students that our small groups are currently filled to capacity. If you would like to join a group, email youth@restorationrva.org and you will be added if we have enough leaders and drivers for your specific group.

YOUTH WORSHIP TEAM
Restoration Confirmation Cohorts

Confirmation Cohorts are open to 8th and 9th graders who attend Restoration Church. Cohorts consist of 4-6 students and 2 adult leaders. They are 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 are held at Oak Knoll Middle School from 9:00-9:50 am on Sunday mornings, and will continue January through March. Contact Jen Williams at jwilliams@restorationrva.org for more information.

STUDENT LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE

Student Leadership Conference

Granger, IN

July 7-12th

Rising 9th-12th graders

Cost: $395

 

Student Application and $100 deposit due March 15th, balance due by May 1st

 

Student Leadership Conference (SLC) is a conference for committed rising 9th through current 12th graders who want to go where God is leading NOW, as students, and to lead others where He leads. Through hands-on leadership experiences, inspirational speakers, impactful worship and peer discussion, students are empowered to dream and plan for immediate leadership impact in their churches, schools, communities, and beyond. SLC is not a summer camp. It is designed for students who are serious about ministry and want to make an impact for Christ in their world.

 

Please be prayerful and intentional in completing your application. An interview and reference checks will be part of the selection process. A completed application does not guarantee acceptance. In some cases, an interview may be necessary. Priority will be given to applications returned by the deadline! Please complete the online application and forward the reference link to your references.

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).
