Work + Worship: An Interactive Experience

Wednesday, Jun. 16 6:30 p.m.

Watch

Many Christians today feel an aching divide between their worshipping life on Sunday and their working life on Monday. Sunday worship is often viewed as an escape from a busy week of work in the office, the classroom, and the home. But what if that’s not the way God intended it to be? What if God designed human beings to live integrated lives–to carry the cares and concerns of our daily work into his sanctuary in an act of worship. What if we could experience the gospel in new and transformative ways by bringing our work and worship together?

If you desire a deeper connection between your work and worship, we invite you to join Denver Institute for Faith & Work and the congregations at Park Church and Greenwood Community Church for Work + Worship. Guest speaker Matthew Kaemingk (Fuller Seminary), author of Work and Worship: Reconnecting our Labor and Liturgy, will share insight from scripture and Christian tradition to unite our callings as laborers and followers of Christ in a seamless life of faith. 

At Work + Worship, attendees will:

  • Engage both their work and corporate worship through prayers, stories, and songs; 
  • Offer the challenges, triumphs, and toil of your work to Christ, where the gospel speaks to your callings through communion; and
  • Reframe our perspective of work in anticipation of a “new normal.”

Praise for Work and Worship: Reconnecting Our Labor and Liturgy

“Here, finally, is the book that will take the ‘faith and work’ conversation to new depths of intentionality. With theological clarity and real-world accountability, Kaemingk and Willson mend what we have rent asunder. Advancing scholarship in theology of culture, it is also a must-read for those who lead worship for workers–which includes, of course, everyone. This should become a standard textbook, for the sake of the church and for the sake of the world.” 

–James K.A. Smith

“This book is for bridge builders who desire to put into practice what it can mean to live a fully integrated life. There is so much truth in this book that it made my heart ache for our current reality and, at the same time, soar with hope for what could be by simply understanding that the church can provide so much more for its community of laborers.”
