Ellen SoeHngen - children's ministry

Ellen coordinates our nursery at Restoration Church. She has been serving the littlest members of our church family for almost 30 years. In fact, she taught some of the parents of current nursery children! Her love of God and delight in His word has been inspiring our children to love the Bible. Each Sunday, she reminds them that Jesus loves them with joy in her voice and a smile on her face. In this virtual season, you can find her every Sunday on our Children's Ministry Facebook page leading a sweet nursery story time. She is a woman of many gifts and talents (including raising geese!), and we are so grateful for all she does for our church. 


eric walter - tech team

Eric Walter leads our Tech Team and is highly invested in Restoration Church. He is a focused and calming presence. As a fount of technical wisdom, he selflessly goes above and beyond his "volunteer position" of Lead Tech through also helping to oversee our Production & Media needs. He has stepped up to help us transition our worship services online and made numerous improvements each week. With the time he spends working in this position, you would never guess his real full time job is as a TAM (Technical Account Manager) for Microsoft. He is husband to Denise and dad to Hayden, Karlie and Addison. He handles all of this with energy, humor and grace. He also has a deep love for Wawa and he generously shares coffee, breakfast sandwiches (sizzlies) and other baked items from there with the Tech Team and more. Eric is a gift to our church family!
