New 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.

Wall of Faith
The collection of crosses on the wall represent the individual(s) that people are earnestly praying will soon come to know and receive Jesus. As these individuals give their lives to the Lord, a red ribbon is tied around their cross. This wall is a reminder to pray for and serve those that need Christ and to rejoice as He draws people to Himself. If you are praying for someone to come to know the Lord and would like to bring in a cross, please bring it to church office.
