Resurrection Church Info Session

June 14 from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

East Boston is a beautiful, lively, resilient neighborhood. Few people realize that it’s the 4th largest neighborhood in Boston; home to more than 7% of all Bostonians. While it’s most commonly thought of as the “neighborhood by the airport,” it really ought to be known for its vibrant immigrant communities, lovely green spaces, passionate community organizations, talented artists, and top-notch cuisine. East Boston is beautiful.

As people of faith we believe that this beauty is a gift from God. This world was made by God and belongs to God. That makes Eastie sacred space. And yet for all of its loveliness, the neighborhood experiences significant tensions. Whether its economic hardship, racism, environmental strain, illness, isolation, hopelessness, or loneliness, there is brokenness within us and around us. On top of this, the neighborhood has seen a significant decrease in religious organizations and churches over the years. As it stands, the average resident has less likelihood of encountering the hope, beauty, and purpose found in relationship with God than they do in almost any other Boston neighborhood.

That’s why we’re endeavoring to start Resurrection Church this year. We’re NOT on a mission to “resurrect” East Boston–the resurrection in our name is about the hope found in the history-defining resurrection of Jesus over death. We simply want to join in with what God is already doing here so that more people might come to live a satisfying life with God, find meaningful community, and love their neighbors well. It’s a humble vision. And it’s a huge vision.

While we won’t be holding a public worship service until September, we are forming what’s called a “Core Team” beginning in April, and then expanding to an expanded “Launch Team” in mid-July. If you want to hear more, and consider whether this new community might be for you, please join us:
