2013 Summer Dinner Series

Summer brings a host of welcome changes. With schedules that are more flexible, many of us can afford to spend more time outdoors, and doing things that we enjoy with friends, family, and neighbors. So it is only natural that our rhythm as the church changes as well. To capitalize on this, we are bringing back the Summer Dinner Series. Join us Wednesday nights, July 10 to August 14, as we EAT, GROW, and CONNECT around God’s grace.


Jesus was no stranger to a good meal, whether it was with the faithful, or not-so-faithful. He showed us that meals together demonstrate the grace that God extends to us! During our Summer Dinner Series at The 400, you will be able to enjoy the convenience of a catered dinner, and the flexibility of attending one of the multiple learning tracks we are offering. Let’s take this opportunity to enjoy and introduce others to the community of God’s people.


May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. – 2 Peter 1:2

Grace comes to us through learning about God and his ways. This summer, we will have five unique tracks to help us grow in grace.

Track 1
Our Family | The Context of Grace
How does grace come to us through the family? With live teaching, we’ll explore the bible’s wisdom for grace-driven leadership in the family, and talk through some timely issues; including, but not limited to: marriage, finances, and parenting. This track is for ANYONE! Those considering marriage, and those with established and growing families: all can hope to benefit from the experience of others, with plenty of time during the class for questions and answers.

Track 2
Our Redemption | The Doctrines of Grace
As Christians, we are predestined, called, justified, and glorified by God’s grace. So how do these wonderful doctrines work together to help us understand the riches of the gospel? In concert with our current sermon series on The Drama of Redemption, we’ll explore Romans 8:29-30, as well as use R. C. Sproul’s What is Reformed Theology? Understanding the Basics as our guide. There will be live teaching, some video, and plenty of time for questions and answers.

Track 3
Our Finances | The Stewardship of Grace
Jesus said, “Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required” (Luke 12:48). As Christians, we have been given money and possessions by God’s grace. So what are we to do with them? Together we’ll explore both a theological understanding of finances and stewardship, as well as look at best practices on creating a budget, eliminating debt, saving, giving, and a host of other related topics. There will be live teaching, and plenty of time for questions and answers.


Track 4
Student Community
Middle and High School Students will be gathering together to look at our true identity in Christ. With the help of Mark Driscoll’s Who Do You Think You Are? Finding Your True Identity in Christ, we’ll explore what Ephesians has to say about who we are. Ideas like: I am a Saint, I am New, I am Forgiven, and I am Loved. With games, videos, and live teaching, we hope to see our students grow and connect with new friends.

Track 5
Summer Beta Community
What does it mean to be a gospel community on mission? Join folks new to Redemption Hill Church for our next Beta Community. During these six weeks, you’ll be able to “field-test” the way the gospel shapes our community as we focus on the big ideas we hope to embody: gospel-centered, grace-driven, and mission-minded. The hope is that that after the Beta experience, everyone involved will become part of a new or existing Community.

I get off work (Stony Point office park, near the fashion park) at 6pm, so will not arrive for dinner till around 6:30. Can I still have dinner? I checked yes for dinner…
Let me know if that is too late, so I can arrange to bring a snack.

    Good question Julia! We’ll be looking to transition from dinner into the various tracks around 6:45ish each night, so you should still have time to eat.

Will you have gluten free options for dinner?

I am so sorry for registering and not showing up last night! I had an appointment at 4:30 that I thought surely would be over by 6, but didn’t end up getting out til 6:45. I look forward to being there next week, though.

We, the three of us, plan on attending each Summer Dinner Series Wednesday through out the entire season. We will be in the Student Community.
I will RSVP each week in addition to this post.

So sorry that my schedule didn’t accommodate attending the summer series this year. I was blessed by last year’s teaching and fellowship and I look forward to future connection points for growth in grace 🙂
