“God’s Divine Design for Work and Time” Church 08.28.22

Here comes another change of seasons, as we will soon shift from summer to fall. God created the world and us with a divine design for work and time. The Bible gives us a strategy to spend our time wisely and compels us to get the most important things done. Come to Rockwell Church this Sunday and be encouraged that the way you work (at your job site, school, or as a volunteer) really does matter to God. Join us Sunday at 10:15 am at 93 Midway Drive in Virginia, MN.
