The Q Conference is coming April 26-28 in Nashville, TN. Are you asking the right Questions? Are you getting the right answers? Are you putting this knowledge to good use? The Q Conference will challenge you, equip you and encourage you. This year, several of your friends at Restoration Life will be making their way to Nashville. If you would like to join us, let us know. We'd love to help get you there.
We did an amazing job stepping up and serving for the Winter Sanctuary Kick-off. Because there was a cancellation, we carried three nights before, during and after Thanksgiving.
Coming in January, we will serve three more nights during our normally scheduled time. Please choose one night you are willing to serve dinner and connect with our homeless guests. This is a great way to start the new year and serve with friends and family alike.

After all the Christmas joy there's still more joy ahead. One of the best Sunday Services of the Year, our 12th annual New Year's Brunch should not be missed. We'll have great food, a beautiful banquet hall, worship and inspiring stories of God's faithfulness to His people.
Have you seen the new Golden One Center in Downtown Sacramento? It's very exciting to see our beautiful new world-class arena in the heart of the City. On Tuesday, December 20th, you can join your friends at Restoration Life and E49, together with many other area churches, as we support housing for those in need in partnership with the Kings. A portion of the proceeds of all tickets we sell will go towards the E49 Housing Initiative. Have fun while supporting a good cause.

Get those angel wings dusted-off and prepare your best Christmas caroling voice. The Children's Ministry at Restoration Life is at it again and it's sure to inspire Christmas joy. Parents, please plan on a dress rehearsal on Saturday, December 17th. Everyone else, plan on enjoying the show. If you would like to volunteer your time to prepare the children or decorate the stage, contact Michelle Prescott this Sunday.
Save the Date. Each December Restoration Life partners with Love In the Name of Christ to deliver household goods to people in need. Our night this year is on Thursday, December 8th. We need people of all kinds to carry both light and heavy loads, drive a trailer and talk to people as we work. Thousands of people in our City don't have basic furniture. Some sleep on the floor and many eat there as well. Your heart will be moved with compassion as you serve. Bring the family or come alone. We'll gather at the Love INC service center and head out together from there. More details to come.
Our partnership with E49 and Winter Sanctuary means we are on the front lines when it comes to providing a place for the homeless to find immediate shelter. Nicolette Romig and the team are in need of an emergency team to serve dinner for 100 guests at Restoration Life on Wednesday, November 23rd, Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) the 24th and Friday, the 25th in the evening. If you are willing to help or lead, please contact Nicolette at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Men were made for adventure. From fishing poles to four-wheel-drive, we have designed a weekend of man fun just for you. Join us in the high desert of Nevada. Just a 2 hour drive from Sacramento you will find the Wild West is untouched and unmatched for it's beautiful wide open spaces and panoramic views. The air is a bit more fresh, the evening skies are peppered with stars and men sit around the camp fire telling stories big and small. It's a weekend away you simply cannot afford to miss.
1. How much does it cost?
Nothing! You are responsible for your own transportation and food. We can help with carpooling and you are encouraged to share meals with others.
2. What do I need to bring?
The high desert gets cold at night and warm in the daytime. Bring a warm jacket and gloves and a warm sleeping bag. We camp in tents or in our trucks. If you don't have a tent or camping gear, we have extra and you can share. You'll need a chair for around the fire and are welcome to bring your fishing pole and guns [GUNS ARE NOT ALLOWED OUT EXCEPT DURING THE OPEN RANGE TIME ON SATURDAY WHERE THERE WILL BE STRICT RANGE RULES FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL]. Bring whatever FOOD and NON-ALCOHOLIC beverages you prefer.
3. Where will we meet?
Pastor Marc will give you the directions when you let him know you are coming. The campground is off-road but easily navigated in a two-wheel drive vehicle.
4. Can I bring others?
Yes, this is open to friends, family and co-workers. Bring as many as you like the open desert has plenty of room for all. If you choose to bring your kids, you are welcome at your own discretion.
5. When will we be back?
Camp closes after church services on Sunday morning. If you head straight home, it should be no later than 2pm.
Not able to commit to a regular time at Tahoe Elementary each month but still want to support the ongoing mission of Restoration Life to bring hope and healing to kids in need? You can help us serve hot dogs at the annual Fall Festival, Thursday, November 3rd. Set-up time is between 2:30-4:00 and the Festival runs from 4:00-6:00. If you are able to sign-up for either or both of these times, it will allow you to be on campus, meeting and serving the families that go to the school.

Drop off the kids and go have some fun. There's nothing easy about being a parent but we want to make it just a little bit easier to be married. Go on a date, stay home and enjoy the quiet or get some errands done. We don't care how you spend the time, but we want you to have time. We'll take good care of your little ones. Drop-off is for infants to 6th grade, $10 for the first child, $5 for additional children. For more information go to: https://www.facebook.com/Restoration-Life-Church-Sacramento-300811880048524/
Some of the most exciting moments in my Christian life came during Seminary. Learning biblical truth has transformed my life and it can do the same for you. Join us this Sunday and every Sunday after the service and I guarantee your life will change for the better. Our time is relational and the curriculum is designed to deliver seminary level truth into your hands and heart.
Foundations of the Faith
Learn about how you fit into God's story through the pages of the bible, about church history, why we do baptism and communion, racism, addiction, and victorious living.

We will offer haircuts, family portraits, a kid zone, free groceries and clothing as well as a prayer tent. Restlife will be running the grocery give-away portion of this event which is sponsored our very own E49 Corp.
Summer is almost over, but the fun times are still rolling. We've planned an evening of relaxation, good food and plenty of fun for all our friends.
