Ministries

Like its Biblical namesakes, the Anna and Simeon Ministry, serves as an outreach ministry for elders of the church to evangelize and spread the good news of the Messiah to residents in nursing homes/rehabilitation centers around the Bronx and NYC.  Members of this ministry go to the Grand Concourse Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center every month, and to Split Rock Nursing Home every other month to minister to residents.

They also go to hospitals to pray for and minister to the sick when called upon to do so.

You do not have to be an elder to join this ministry – everyone is invited to come along whenever they go out to minister.

The House Fellowship centers of Chapel of Restoration are smaller units of the Church where immediate needs of members are easily identified and met in a timely and respectable manner.

House fellowship centers create and promote an avenue for networking and a sense of belonging in a nuclear family like setting; which enhances growth and foster relationships.

The house fellowship centers are nondenominational which makes it open for non redeemed members to participate. We are promoting Christ in our immediate community by bringing Jesus Christ to our various communities with different community outreach programs.

House fellowship centers meet every second and fourth Sundays of each Month at various centers and at a time convenient for all members at the center.

The Search the Scriptures classes every Sunday at Chapel of Restoration have been a fascinating gathering through which the Word of God are taught by seasoned teachers.

The topics from the Search the Scriptures are tailored to build and transform lives in Christ Jesus.

I admonish everyone to attend the Search the Scriptures classes every Sunday to find the truth about our Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV).

The Usher Ministry occupy a strategic office in the life, image and embodiment of the gracious spirit of the church. Ushers present ourselves as instruments who introduce individuals to every practical expression of the church’s mission and to the presence of the Almighty.

Ushers help to maintain order and decorum during the service. They also help to collect the offering for the day.

The Welcome Team is responsible for meeting the guests after Sunday services/special programs and for welcoming them officially on behalf of the Pastor.

Guests are given a gift pack each and are encouraged to complete the Guest Card for follow-up purposes. Guests are followed-up by courtesy phone calls from members of the Welcome Team to check on their well-being and to pray with them, if they so desire. Emails are also sent to the guests by the Church Administrator to thank them for fellowshipping with us and to inform them of the schedules of the weekly and monthly meetings of the church.

On a quarterly basis, the Welcome Team organizes a formal church-sponsored luncheon, tagged ‘Meet the Pastor’, for new members of the church to meet the Pastor and the ministers of the church, to know more about the doctrines of the church and to ask questions.

As and when we identify members of the church who appear to be absent from the church for a significant period of time, members of the department would follow-up with such members by phone calls and, if necessary, inform the Pastor.
