Restore Groups are clusters of friends, family, and neighbors throughout the city in which belonging, restoration, and learning take a rhythmic shape as a way of life as we pastor each other into lives of justice, mercy, and faithfulness. We believe people typically find God when they encounter his people. The Restore Group is the life of EAST.  Below is a list of our restore groups, if you would like to check one out please contact the facilitator listed with that group.  


Water and Wine - We are an eclectic group, mostly in our 20's, trying to figure our what it means to know good news and then live good news into the lives of our friends and neighbors. Water & Wine has been meeting together for over 8 years in various forms always renewing through the love and vulnerability of its members. We strive to listen, serve, and create a space for the Spirit of God to work in our hearts together. We meet Wednesday nights from 7-9pm at avarious homes in Central Austin. We'd love to have you join us. If you are interested in the group please email Brian Boitmann -

East-Central -  We are a group of singles and young couples. We gather each Thursday night at 7pm for dinner and community. We change locations each week, but meet mostly in East or North Austin. We are at different stages in our faith journeys and welcome anyone new to the Church at East looking for community.  If you would like to know more about this group, please email Meg Garner - meg.garner@gmail.com

Second Family - We are a family friendly group seeking intentional relationships with each other and our communities. We gather at 10 am on the second and fourth Saturday every month at various locations in East and South Austin. We share a light breakfast together, pray for the big and small in our lives and those around us, and contemplate God’s Word and the movement of His Spirit. We would love for you to visit our group! Please contact Drew or Lauren Schutz if you are interested or have any questions. drewcschutz@gmail.com or laurenmarieschutz@gmail.com
