Faith & Work

The Faith & Work Ministry at King's Cross aims to seed and cultivate a rich Christian vision of work. We want to empower men and women to realize the fullness of their Christian identity at work. Our hope is that we will all see our work as an essential place where we can serve the Lord Jesus, express the gifts and abilities he has given us to steward, serve our neighbors, and be salt and light for the common good.

Work is Good. Work is Broken. In Christ Jesus, Work Can Be Restored

Faith & Work Gathering: September 16th

The Faith & Work Ministry invites you to the next Faith @ Work Gathering, 2-4pm at Temple Beth Sholom. This gathering will meditate on how our work is used by God to bless the common good and apply this idea in vocational groups. Registration is required. All are welcomed! Childcare provided.

Theology of Work Course

This six-session class exists to educate our church on the splendor and beauty of the biblical view of work. We desire that everyone in our church family, youth to elderly, would lay claim to the truth that (a) we are created in the image of working God and created for good works, (b) because of this our work is an important component of life's meaning, purpose, and blessing (and a place which is deeply impacted by sin), and (c) our work is also where we glorify God and love others. In Fall 2018, the class is being held on Sunday afternoons, 2-4pm, at P.S. 20. Registration is open here.

Vocational Groups

Vocational groups are a central component of the Faith @ Work Gatherings.  These groups bring together men and women based on a shared field of work. Groups currently include healthcare, education, finance/ accounting, fashion, IT, nonprofit/ government, architecture/ engineering, art, corporate, homemaking, law, real estate, marketing/ advertising, skilled trades & public service, students, and entrepreneur/ small business owner.  In these groups, Christians can share frustrations, celebrate triumphs, pray for one another, seek the will of God in his Word, and pursue justice & mercy alongside men and women who understand the complexities and challenges of their work field. We believe that gathering with others in our fields deepens fellowship, emboldens and sharpens prayer, and helps us ask better questions of God and his Word. Vocational groups will gather on September 16th and November 11th in Fall 2018.

Faith @ Work Gatherings

Faith @ Work Gatherings gather the whole congregation for worship, teaching, and fellowship over work. We believe that coming together as the Body of Christ in worship is a vital element for connecting our Christian faith to our work. These afternoons include teaching and significant time in vocational break-outs led by assigned and equipped facilitators.  Faith @ Work Gatherings are
scheduled for September 16th and November 11th in Fall 2018. 2019 schedule to be announced soon.

Commissioning

King's Cross hosted its first commissioning for work service on May 20, 2018. Seven women and men were commissioned by the church to serve Jesus in their work. By doing this, we proclaim the truth that all legitimate work can be done in response to the calling of Christ and should be understood as "full-time Christian work."  The next commissioning for work service will be held on November 4th. Please contact Ben Nicka with inquiries (bnicka@kingscrossnyc.org).
