The Gospel and Work

Join the men of Refuge on a series through The Gospel and Work.

For a brief summary of what this book is about, we've included the synopsis from the book's website:

"You are not what you do. So often, in America, we define who we are by what we do. We introduce ourselves by our job titles. We ask, “What do you do?” to be polite in small talk. We define others by their occupation. But there are good reasons to connect what you do with your time, whether that is 9-to-5 work, or managing a household full of children. God created us to work, not as judgment, but in cooperation with a mandate given to humanity long before the fall. Your work isn’t who you are, but it is central to why you are here. When we get that confused, our work can be the most frustrating aspect of our lives."

The new series began on Monday, February 5 at 7:00pm at Refuge Christian Fellowship, 791 Lombardi Ct., Santa Rosa, CA 95407. They will continue to meet every other Monday night at the same time + place. For a full schedule, click here
