COVID-19 Fund

We have established a relief fund to assist families in our church and community during this time of economic uncertainty using funds from our Christmas Eve offering. Restoration is partnering with local agencies to identify people and families in the community who most need financial assistance. These ministry partners have established vetting processes and expertise. We want to work alongside them to provide this much-needed support. We will also help families in our church who may need assistance.

If you would like to donate to the relief fund, you can contribute online. Select “COVID-19 Relief Fund” in the drop-down menu. You may also mail a check to the church with “COVID-19 Relief Fund” on the memo line.


Cornerstones – one of Restoration Church’s local community partners – is currently collecting school supplies and vital PPE. Items like masks, face shields and gloves will equip families in our community, who are in need of safety and success but need your help.

They are accepting donations at the Reston National Golf Course every Saturday through the end of August.
