Work as Worship Simulcast

February 23rd, 2018
8:30am – 3:30pm

 

Crosslink Community Church
3445 Old Hillsborough Road
Mebane, NC

God has a purpose for us on this earth. That calling is to be on mission for God where He has placed us. And since many people spend the majority of their waking hours on the job, we have to stop compartmentalizing life into “spiritual activities” and “work activities.” How are we living examples of the gospel while we work?

You’re invited to the 2017 Work as Worship Retreat, where eleven influential business leaders and pastors will discuss what it looks like to connect faith and work. Taking place as a 1-Day Local Church Retreat on February 23, 2018, the live event in Dallas will be web-streamed to over 2,000 churches around the world.

Join Patrick Lencioni (Author, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team), Joel Manby (CEO, Seaworld), Phil Vischer (Creator, VeggieTales and Jellyfish Labs), Wendy Davidson (President, US Specialty Channels Kellogg Company), Matt Chandler (Lead Pastor, The Village Church), and others in a day filled with real-life stories, biblical teaching, and practical wisdom that will equip believers in the marketplace to see their work as an opportunity to care for their families, fulfill their calling, and bring glory to God.

The cost is $25 which Includes lunch.

Mark Whitacre Event

West Cabarrus Church is hosting a Mark Whitacre Event.

This is absolutely one of the most intriguing stories I have ever heard. Mark was an extremely successful businessman and became an informant for the FBI. This story consists of money, wealth, power, surveillance, suspense, imprisonment,  faithfulness, and redemption. In fact a movie was made of this story and starred Matt Damon.

Saturday, March 3rd from 6-8pm at West Cabarrus Church in Concord, NC

We invite your church to the event (cost of $7.00) per person. This is a great way to bring the lost to meet the man behind the story and hear the redemptive grace of God.

 

The story of Mark’s wife is also riveting and shows how faithfulness prevails. This is also a great “date night” event for couples.

Vintage: Breakout Charlotte

Breakout CLT NC is a weekend to bring students from all over the Charlotte area to come together to worship and be equipped to live a life for the gospel in their schools. The weekend is a time of worship, an illusionist, a comedian and a mission project serving a local ministry. We keep cost down so as many groups can come together and seek ways in which they can draw closer to God. The goal of Breakout is to have students from different groups meet and see where everyone goes to school and look for ways to reach their schools together for Christ.
