Faith at Work

Christ Community’s 2022/2023 year-long theme is “Faith at Work.”  What we do Monday through Friday (whether paid or unpaid) is important to God. How we do our work is a form of worship. Our work has meaning. As part of Faith at Work, Christ Community will present three weekend teaching series as well as a limited-run podcast:
