What's Happening Next Month at Redeemer: August 2015

Summer is such a great time to enjoy the city, each other, and do ordinary life with gospel intentionality together through BBQ, festivals, and just being out and about. I want to encourage you to steward the summer to link up with the family at Redeemer to be in community and on mission organically and through larger, formal events in our city with friends and neighbors.

Here’s a run down of formal events this summer as we continue to follow together Jesus.

3 on 3 Youth Basketball Tournament – August 1st at 1pm at Trum Field
We’re working with a couple friends from Teen Empowerment of Somerville to host a basketball tournament for Somerville teens as a way to bless and serve them. There will be a lot of ways to help serve and connect with folks at this event so let let us know if you already think you’d want to help.

RSVP here to come or sign up to play.

Prayer Night - August 6th - 7pm at 16 Beech St. in Cambridge
As we move closer to fall, it's crucial to make intentional time to pray for each other, our church, and our vision to see the Gospel impact and change lives.

We want to see people come to faith in Jesus this fall...and see disconnected believers become connected in church community...and see seekers find Jesus...and see everyone at Redeemer grow in Christ and live with more joy, love, and passion for our Savior.

Because there is so much we want to see happen, it's easy to lapse into thinking all our activities are the main work of seeing all the aforementioned things come to fruition. But as one old writer puts it, "[p]rayer does not equip us for greater works— prayer is the greater work."

Come through on the 6th as we ask God to do what only He can do in us and through us so that we would love Jesus more and many would come to know Him for the first time.

RSVP here.

Post-Gathering Picnic and Lawn Games - August 9th at Trum Field
After our Sunday worship gathering, swing over to Trum Field for some Stone Hearth Pizza and sandwich wraps and some park games. This will be a fun and fruitful opportunity to interact with new and old friends and introduce them to the folks at Redeemer. Invite away -- everyone is welcomed!

RSVP here.
