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.

Women’s Bible Study –Begins Tuesday Oct. 21st
Stuck by Jennie Allen is an eight week study, beginning Tuesday, October 21st and meeting from 7:00 – 8:30 in the Fireside room at church. This Bible Study will focus on the places we get stuck in life & the God who sets us free. These “stuck” places often go unattended inside of us and they are shaping our lives more than we would like to think. God has a plan for these spaces inside of us, but we have to go to Him. Stuck is a journey to take an honest look at the fight going on inside, and leading us to the God who has a plan to restore us. The cost of the study guide is $10.00. Please sign up on the signup sheet at the back of the church.
