There has been no greater event or retreat over the years that we have seen make an impact on our youth like The Great Escape. More students have given their lives to trusting Jesus and growing deeper in their faith while having an absolute blast. This conference is a must! Our middle school youth will return once again for this incredible spiritual experience and wacky recreation time to Johnstown, PA from July 22nd - July 27th
Total Cost: $500
Deposit due now: $200
(You will need to pay the remaining $300 by May 17th)

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 email@example.com and you will be added if we have enough leaders and drivers for your specific group.

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 our youth team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Generation is for instrumentalists, vocalists, and tech operators (audio and visual) of all skill levels in grades 6-12. Generation is intended to be the training ground where students of all skill levels learn to work together as a team and lead worship. 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 6:30-7:45 at the Libbys’ house (10081 Cool Spring Road, Mechanicsville, VA 23116). Rehearsals begin September 13.
A note to current Generation members: Notice that the rehearsal time is different from last year. If you were in Generation or Launch last year, you do NOT need to register again.
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).
