Many Christians—from the CEO to the teacher to the stay-at-home mom—spend a great deal of time working and yet do not realize how their work intersects with their faith. They compartmentalize their faith to Sunday morning and see the rest of their week as having little to do with their walk with God. Scripture, however, makes no division between the sacred and secular parts of our lives. God gives us our work, talent and skills so that through them we might worship Him.

Through powerful biblical teaching from J.D. Greear, real-life stories and engaging illustrations, the Work as Worship Bible Study will help you understand the biblical mandate for work. Take a look at this video overview of the series.

In these six powerful sessions, J.D. Greear will challenge your group to consider the reason God calls us to work, why He may have you in your current position and encourage you to look beyond how your job makes you feel and see purpose and significance in your work.

J.D. is the Lead Pastor of The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham and has authored a number of publications, including Gospel and Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart.

In the Work as Worship Bible Study, you'll also hear from a variety of people who share about their own experiences in bridging the gap from Sunday church to Monday work. 

In this real-life story from the series, Jeff talks about how he loves to be around people and so he chose to work in the restaurant business instead of a desk job. Jeff uses his gift and passion for business and people to glorify God in the restaurants he owns. 

God gives us great potential to impact our families, churches, communities and the world through the blessing of our work. Who do you know who may not realize how their work intersects with their faith? Who will you reach out to as you start this Bible Study?

To help you teach the Bible study lesson, you will use downloadable Leader's Guide and group handouts available online to dig deep into powerful teaching from the video. Take some time in advance to consider the Bible study questions and come up with personal examples to encourage discussion with your students.

As you prepare to lead this Bible study, are there any ways I can pray for you or help you facilitate?
