March 6 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am PST
Cedarbrook Lodge, 18525 36th Ave S
Seattle, WA 98188 United States

Hear from Matthew Kaemingk (Fuller Theological Seminary) regarding the connection between our gathered worship in the sanctuary and our scattered work throughout the city. We will dive into:

How can the church help its people bridge this divide between worship and work, liturgy and labor?

How can we practice the presence of God in the workplace?

How can we bring our work to God as a sacrifice of praise in the sanctuary?

Join us for this discussion and enjoy a hearty, warm breakfast together. The event is free and is insightful for worship leaders, pastors, and any lay ministers serving in the church.

Andy Crouch – Culture Making (Silicon Valley)

Presenter: Andy Crouch
March 28 @ 11:30 am - 3:15 pm PDT
Central Peninsula Church, 1005 Shell Boulevard
Foster City, CA 94404 United States

Andy Crouch believes that the Church is missing our cultural responsibility and opportunity; that being "culturally relevant" falls somewhat short of what we're called to do. He believes that we were meant to create and cultivate culture. The Church is not meant to simply analyze or keep up with culture, we're made to contribute and advance it.

Crouch argues that we need to look around us and see what we can create that brings peace and human flourishing to our neighborhoods.
