My battery died yesterday. I was finally able to get it to start, but now everytime I shift the car it dies. What is causing this? Do I just need a new battery?

Recent repairs that I have had done are front hub bearings replace about 2 weeks ago, and driver side window motor replaced. Its been a while since last tune up, I was gonna take it in in a couple weeks. When I jump the car it takes a minute, but then starts right up.
