Fellowship Denver Church Denver, CO

Annual Celebration 2018: The Sounds of Work

Saturday, May. 19 6:00 p.m.




Our shared calling as Christians is to honor Christ as Lord with our lips and lives, in every endeavor we undertake. Every aspect of daily life can become worship, but what if the experiences we most often associate with worship—songs, Scripture readings, and prayer—could inform and inspire our daily work?

Join Denver Institute on Saturday, May 19 at Fellowship Denver Church for an extraordinary evening with singer-songwriter Sandra McCracken. Sandra will perform selected works from the Porter’s GateWork Songs” album, as part of a liturgy exploring work and calling. DIFW staff and supporters will also share stories celebrating God’s work through the Institute.

Festivities begin at 6 p.m. with hors-d’oeuvres and drinks, followed by a worship celebration at 7 p.m.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience God in new ways through your work!
