Faith & Work

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord…”
-Colossians 3:23

The workplace is where we spend most of our waking hours, yet it is often where we feel least equipped to truly live the gospel message. The vision of the Faith & Work Ministry at Community Church is to equip and encourage Christians to live out our Christian calling at work–so that we can be part of “making disciples of all nations” and the transformation of society within our workplaces.

 

To fulfill this vision we offer a variety of courses interspersed with guest speakers, panel discussions and prayer gatherings.  Courses we have offered in the past include “God at Work”, “Lead like Jesus”, “Everyone Communicates but few Connect”, “Decisive” and most recently “ReFrame”.  Our courses and other gatherings are open to all, and usually have a strong ecumenical mix.
