While we encourage our Neighborhood Community Groups to organize service projects and rhythms within their neighborhoods, we also find value in joining together as a church body to serve and support several ministries and organizations throughout Atlanta.
Restore Life is a non-profit organization located in the Westside neighborhoods of Atlanta, specifically in a community known as Grove Park. Initially formed as a collective impact non-profit, we spent our first year of operation building partnerships and raising funds for our community leaders and partners. It was through this process that we discovered our greatest strength: developing and investing in leaders. Now, that's all we do. We're a group of people who are passionate about the flourishing and restoration of our Grove Park neighborhood. We live, work, and play here in Grove Park, and these neighbors are our friends.
