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.

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.
