Current Sermon Series: Your Work for God’s Glory
Nothing seems to define us more today than our work – what we do for a living. Yet, my guess is very few of us have ever stopped to consider that our work might be important to God. We have failed to understand that our work has intrinsic value and purpose far beyond personal fulfillment and a paycheck. This fall we will be developing a theology of work; (God’s perspective on our work) and examining some of the practical applications of these truths.
