Connection
to Jesus for
absolutely
anyone.

We believe in grace.

We believe that through grace Jesus is restoring all things. And that includes you! It includes every part of you. That is why we are named Restore! Regardless of the sin that has hold of you or the shame that diminishes you, Jesus has come to restore every weary and inhumane rhythm of your life into a beautiful melody.

About Us
We love togetherness.

Life is about relationships. Jesus is too. Let us help you build some fantastic ones. We sincerely want to help you find your place—a place where you can be known and loved. Grace works most beautifully when we are most connected and loved. You can learn more about our life together below.

We preach about Jesus every single week, expecting that hearing about His great love will give us great love too! We meet inside the Harriet and Joe Foster YMCA on 1234 W. 34th St. every Sunday at 10 AM.

Our supreme goal every single week is to experience the real, life-giving, soul-forming restorative presence of God and authentic, loving connection with one another. When this happens, we believe redemption can happen. We believe God is glorified. And want nothing else! For you. For Sundays. For every moment of our lives.

To be a part of Restore is to be part of a small group. These small groups have an official weekly meeting—but they’re meant to become much more than that. Our groups are where we find family we just hadn’t met yet. They’re where we dig through our issues and help each other. They’re where we delight in each other and learn to delight in God.

When small groups go right, we end up with depth and joy. We end up with lifelong relationships. We end up experiencing God’s grace and comfort, directly from God’s people.

Find Your Family

Jesus loves your kids! We do too! We are just babysitters. Our Restore Kids team works hard every single week to create a safe, meaningful space for your kids to learn about Jesus. Through love and compassion, we guide our little ones to the One that made them so special in the first place.

Our heart and our prayer is that our children would confidently and courageously grow into the next generation of world-impacting Jesus followers because they knew they were loved by their Heavenly Father.

Our staff are our servants. We are a neighborhood church. We exist for relationships. Our pastoral staff are excited and eager to get to know you, to be able to spend time with you, and to walk alongside you, day or night, through whatever you may be facing.

Our staff works daily to help you encounter Jesus’ grand love for you and this world, while dealing with the real complexities of life and faith. Let us be His loving presence in your life! We can’t wait to meet you!

We love Jesus, and your questions.

At the heart of every sermon we preach is this simple truth – “the grace of Jesus restores all things.” We strive to honestly, openly, and authentically engage with Scripture, grace, life and Jesus through our sermons. Our world is broken. We all feel it. Things are not as they should be. And yet, there is a veiled beauty at work in our world – softening our hearts, teaching us to love one another, even our enemies, restoring our lives, and forgiving our wrongs – that beauty is grace! We sincerely want to explore this grace with you.

You can catch our sermons in person inside the Harriet and Joe Foster YMCA at 1234 W. 34th St. at 10 AM or on Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, or iTunes!

#John13 #washingyourfeet

When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

Every Sunday we participate in communion together because we believe that God is love and that He longs for holy intimacy and communion with us. Join us Sundays at 10a at the Harriet and Joe Foster YMCA on 1234 W. 34th St! ...

If you are struggling with darkness or mental health, if you find yourself “short of comfort” or unsettled in your soul, consider these points today:

1. You are not a person of weak faith because you have a low spirit and are short of comfort.

2. Thinking we must do something (pray more, stop sinning, read your Bible) to receive comfort from Him is like trying to blow your own sail. It is the winds of His mercy and compassion that move your heart. Your “heart is not the compass Christ saileth by.”

3. Often faith is strongest when it is felt, or perceived by us, to be the weakest

4. Our perspectives and sensible feelings are like the weather, changeable and out of our power. They cannot be the source that validates our faith or provides reassurance of God’s goodness for you.

5. He is able to save to the uttermost and will never cast out one who comes to Him.

6. The Lord can work in the darkest places and by unlooked-for means. He knows how and where to find his lost sheep; and when they begin to seek him, they may be sure that “He has been beforehand” with them, and has sought and found them first…

Never forget, “the source of true faith is Christ, living, dying, rising, reigning, interceding for you. A sense of unworthiness and weakness, joined with a hope in the Saviour, constitutes the character of a Christian in this world.”

**Adapted from a letter written by John Newton, the composer of Amazing Grace, to a woman struggling with depression.
...

So draw near with confidence to the one who is already near to your grief, despair, and darkness. Sing praises to the one who is already singing over you (Zeph 3:17).

*Adapted from "Union with Christ" by Rankin Wilbourne
...

We feel often feel hindered by our limitations and so we try everything we can to remove them. When the frailness of our humanness threatens our worth, we desperately try to overcome it in order to matter more. But your limits are spaces to let go and trust that the goodness of God is as good as He promises us it is. Don't waste your limits by trying to remove them. Don't harbor guilt over them. Don't heap self-condemnation on yourself because of them. Embrace them. For it is in their space that you will meet the abundant provision of God. ...

Did you know most of the examples we have of prayer in the New Testament involve praying for others on their behalf? From Jesus to Paul, we see the profound purpose and beauty of prayer at work when it is offered on behalf of the ones we love to our Good Father.

Having a meaningful prayer life can feel daunting. It is easy to feel unsure or bored with prayer and just give up. Let us help! Join us on Saturday, May 7th as we learn to pray through scriptures together! Whether you pray every day or not at all, we promise it will be worth every minute of your time! DM us to RSVP!

You are a part of God’s plan to restore you to His love. That means…

His timing won’t always be your timing. But His timing will always be for your best.

He is deeply moved be your pain. He sees. He knows. He weeps.

He has command over every broken and inhuman rhythm of your life. They will not ultimately overcome you because they cannot overcome Him.

He is giving you new life in Him. It might be time to take off the “grave clothes” of shame, regret and fear that you’ve always worn.

"Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are mine." -Jesus

Not your success. Your accomplishments. Not the accolades you earn. Nor your rightness. Not the correctness of your viewpoints over everyone else's.

Your love. By this, they will know.

Restore small groups are the place we live the purpose of Jesus. Love takes practice. Being seen and known takes courage. Loving others fully takes risk. So we take the plunge together. We do it with Jesus.
...

His is Risen! Happy Easter from Restore Houston!

Live today knowing that God finds joy in you and will cross any distance that isolates you, overcome any inhumane rhythm that controls you, and defeat every enemy that threatens you, including death, to know you.

This means you can rest knowing He is bringing beauty out of your chaos, love others in ways that you never knew you could, and face the unknown knowing His purposes for you are far more beautiful than you could imagine.
...

We believe God is a friend who speaks to us through our friends (Ex 33:11; Jas 2:23; 1 Cor 12:6-7; 2 Cor 2:15-17), which means that if you want to hear from God at church, go to one where you are among friends who love you. Their love for you, empowered by the divine, self-emptying love of Christ in them (Jn 15:1, 4-5, 9-11; Lk 17:21; Col 3:3), is a catalyst for grace to restore every broken and inhumane rhythm of your life (this is why we are named Restore, btw!).

So come be among friends (or make some new ones!) this Sunday for our very first Easter service as an officially launched church! We're meeting at one of our Houston favs! Worship starts at 10:30a at Walking Stick Brewing Co.
