Work. For most people, it’s a necessity. For some, it’s a passion. For all of us, only one perspective on work really matters: God’s. Our new study, called Taking Care of Business,  addresses specific problem areas we’re all familiar with, from dealing with co-workers and superiors while exemplifying Christ, to balancing our work and home life. Men, please join us for this 6-part series starting Thursday April 20 or Saturday, April 22, depending on your schedule.  Please click here for more info and to register.
