We spend a lot of our lives at work. Excellence, integrity, and diligence in the workplace is an act of worship. Worship of our God is not confined to Sundays!

Does being a Christian ever feel stale or boring to you? Do you need a reboot? Core is about removing distractions from our lives for a short time and giving God our full attention. Our prayer is that we find the abundant life Jesus talks about. Jesus is offering it. Will you give him a chance? Core 2 will be Sundays, February 11-March 18 in the Columbia Room at 12:30-2:30pm. Cost is $10 for those with notebooks; $15 for new people. Registration will begin January 21 in the lobby. Questions? Contact Paulette Williams.
