Welcome to Cedar Park’s
We are here to help you see your work as God sees it.
We believe that work is part of the total discipleship journey with Christ. GodWork 360 is a vocation-focused ministry of Cedar Park centered on inspiring, equipping, mobilizing, and supporting you to discover and live out your full calling.
We get to express our faith through what we do. Your whole life impacts and gets impacted by your work. GodWork 360 brings discipleship to your work.
Groups at a Glance
Interested in joining a small group? Email Mattie Jo Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. We have a handful of small groups running at any given time including:
- Prayer and Purpose — We meet alternating Sundays for a time of prayer support, a devotion and testimony, and sharing about your place at work. This course is taught by Pastor Paul Graves and Pastor Paul Putnam in the CP Bothell Teachers Lounge on Sunday mornings at 9:30.
- Abundant Life — Why is God concerned about my work? What is God’s purpose for my work? Where can I find solutions to challenges at work? When do I experience God’s grace with my work? How do I enjoy the abundant life in work? Have you ever asked these questions? Sebastian Mathews teaches a 15 week course to help discover Who the answer is. The course goes through three topics: Work & Grace, Work & Wisdom, and Work & Leadership. This course meets in the High School Choir Room on Wednesday evenings at 6:30.
- Innovation Think Tanks — For those who are seeking Christ-centered encouragement and guidance in developing a business idea. The Innovation Think Tank (ITT) team works with participants to set S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Reasonable, and Time Bound) goals that they will accomplish within the duration of the ITT program. This course is taught by James Meabon in the High School room 222 at 9:30 am on Sundays.
- Pancakes with Pros — Over breakfast, this group provides an informal opportunity for emerging and young professionals to discover and discuss relevant and challenging workplace topics that practically intersect with our Christian faith. This group is ran by Paul Cabellon at the Kirkland Pancake House every last Thursday of the month. Email email@example.com for more information.
- Belong Couples Vocational Groups — a dinner event on the last Friday of every month at 7 p.m. (ask for details on location) where we can build community, and share in the discipleship journey in life and in work.
This journey has not only challenged my thinking, but has transformed the way I approach my daily work and interact with those around me, especially my students.
Why are we here?
We inspire, support, equip, and mobilize people in discovering and living out their full calling in their place of work — for the purpose of making a difference for the gospel in our communities.
Where are we going?
To be the church that works, we see and value our work as God sees it, recognizing our work as central to the daily life/culture of the local church; in turn, we empower/support each other as we go out and create impact for Christ in our workplaces.
Internally it is about us deepening our relationship with Christ, partly, through a deeper understanding of the instrumental/intrinsic value of our work.
Externally it is about the broader church embracing the value of work, so that as His corporate body we can work together in making a relevant and resonant difference in our workplaces and communities at large.
My faith matters just as much from Monday to Friday as it does on a Sunday.
Looking to dive deeper at the intersection between your faith, work, and economic flourishing? Check back every couple of weeks for devotionals that will help enrich your walk. Feel free to use these devotionals during your quiet times and for discussion/dialogue between fellow Christians.
All work is important to God.
