and the hungry soul He fills with good things. Psalm 107:9 ESV
What a beautiful verse full of promise!
What do you think of when you think of the word “feast?” It's such a wonderful word that brings so many visions to our minds and imaginations. You probably think of a huge, delicious spread of food to savor and enjoy! The Scriptures are full of feasting for God’s people.
But there is more to the word "feast" when you dig a little deeper. The seven Levitical feasts of the Old Testament were designed to point us to Jesus and the redemptive work of God’s Son. At the heart of all the feasts is Jesus.
When we think of the word feast, we think of abundance.
Let’s see how Webster defines the word;
a : an elaborate and usually abundant meal often accompanied by a ceremony or entertainment
b : something that gives unusual or abundant enjoyment
This year in Restore Ministries we are planning something different.
Beginning in September, we will gather women from across the body of Christ on one Friday night each month to come together for a feast. A literal feast of food, but also a feasting on the living Word, Jesus Christ.
We are calling this new endeavor...
Come to the Feast and savor God’s Word as we listen to the stories of Jesus
when He lived and walked among us. Each month we will gather at His Table
for study, worship, communion, prayer, and feasting as we
celebrate God's abundance in community.

Maybe you're thinking, "What about the Restore Retreat? I was planning to attend one this year." We had a spring retreat in March and we are sorry you missed it. It is our desire to continue to retreat with you; however, our plans for the fall have shifted. Restore retreats are the heart of this ministry! And although we are not planning one, we would love to bring a Restore Retreat to your group or church! Go to the "Book Us" section found on the website menu
to see all of the different retreat themes that are available and contact us. We would love to hear from you!
More details and dates will follow in the coming months about our Feast for Your Soul Bible Study...and we are cooking up some surprises, too! So keep looking for Restore posts!
Feasting on Jesus,
Kathy and Sherry
