Wisdom About Work

Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.  -Proverbs 6:6

We focused on the “Wisdom About Work” in our “Proverbs” series today.  Loved worshiping with the North Side family.  One of my highlights was praying over these missionaries being sent out this week.  I love watching our church become a praying church!

It was also great to introduce the new song, “May the Peoples Praise You” today by Keith and Kristyn Getty.  I think it is one of the most complete worship and mission songs written in a very long time.
