Faith & Work

At New City Church, we believe that a life well lived to the glory of God means learning to see our entire lives as an offering to the Lord. And that includes our 9-5 workdays as well. Is it really possible to connect our Sunday worship to Monday morning? Yes, we believe it's not only possible, but essential. 

In spite of the frustrations and difficulties that attend our work, work nevertheless is something that we were designed to do as we contribute to the common good. As the following video from The Institute for Faith, Work & Economics says,

"Our lives are not divided into two halves with one part being sacred and another part secular. Worship is not reserved only for Sunday morning, but for Monday morning as well." 

Below is a list of helpful resources to encourage you to see your work as an offering of worship to our God.
