Redeemer Sugar Land - Focus 2020

Foundations of Christian Civic Engagement

How do we live faithfully in a rapidly polarizing culture? 

Rev. Charles Drew and Rick Barry from the Center for Christian Civics join us at Redeemer Sugar Land to lead a workshop on the unique challenges that come with following Christ in a representative democracy. Together, we will learn how to better enjoy fellowship across party lines, demonstrate Christ's love to our neighbors and care for the city God has carried us into—without conforming to the patterns of the world or its political parties.

This is a particularly relevant topic for many families to think through during this presidential election year as we strive to center ourselves upon God.
