Engage Boston: UniteBoston’s Celebration of Worship
August 17, 2019 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a large summer worship gathering again this year on Saturday August 17th from 7:00 to 9:00pm in the Boston Common! We’re calling this year’s gathering Engage Boston: A Celebration of Worship because we want to celebrate how people are reaching across barriers and engaging one another with the love of Jesus. While many people today may have a negative view of Christianity, and Christians may often feel isolated and alone, we want to change that through coming together in a united celebration of worship. Through diverse music, song, dance, spoken word, and even painting, we can stand together for what the church is for: engaging our neighbor across barriers with unconditional love, joy, and fellowship.
In 2018, more than 1,000 people from throughout Greater Boston attended this event – Click on this link to see photos and a highlight video from last summer’s worship gathering.

An event like this requires all hands on deck! We’d love to have you involved on the church connection, event development, prayer/outreach, art, and sound/tech teams. Check out these opportunities here!
This event requires a variety of resources, including supplies, equipment rentals, and food. This year, we dream of having quality projection and a stage so everyone can see the musicians and lyrics, which costs an additional $10,000.

Prayer makes a huge difference! We appreciate your prayers for smooth logistics, for unity among team members and attendees, for financial provision, and for strong communication and advocacy among the varied organization and church networks in our city.
