Join us for Work as Worship Retreat

Learn how to let your faith impact your work

Friday, February 23, 2018 - 7:30 am - 2:30 pm CST

Cost is $25 and includes lunch

 

On February 23, join thousands of business leaders across the country for a full 1-day retreat to hear from experts, be encouraged, and discuss how to connect your faith and work.

 

In order to communicate a complete and biblical picture of work and faith, we’ve defined eight tenets of the Work as Worship message.
  1. God designed work before the Fall.
  2. We are called to a mission.
  3. The Church is the people - not the building.
  4. Work impacts our perspective of God.
  5. God uses work to impact communities.
  6. All of life can be worship.
  7. We don't work to earn God's favor.
  8. Work as Worship, but don't worship work.

Tenebrae Service is a Worship Service

in Darkness & in Light

Tenebrae is a Latin word meaning “darkness” or "shadows." A service of darkness has been observed in the church of Jesus Christ since the fourth century.

Maundy is also a Latin word meaning “mandatum” or “command,” as on the night before His crucifixion Jesus shared the Last Supper with His disciples and gave them a new commandment to “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34)

As we remember these events foreshadowing our salvation, we progressively extinguish the candles. The gradual extinguishing of the candles represents Christ's increasing suffering and engagement with the effects of our sins. In the experience of darkness and silence, Christ’s eventual death is represented by the Christ Candle being temporarily removed from the sanctuary. After a few minutes, the Christ candle will be brought back as a foretaste of the resurrection that we will celebrate on Easter.

We bring ourselves to the table to accept the gift of Christ’s sacrifice through the sacrament of communion.

You may remain as long as you wish in the quiet reflection of the sanctuary. When you choose to leave, please do so silently, remembering Jesus’ death and in anticipation of the joy of His resurrection.


This is NO APRIL FOOL's joke!

 

Jesus Christ died

but

He is Risen

 

Come join us as we CELEBRATE what so many in the world don't understand. God's incredible gift of amazing love and grace for each and every one who believes on Him.

 

Sunday, April 1 @ 9:30 am. Everyone is invited.
