Work in Progress
This week, we turn to God’s covenant with David and find David in a relatable situation: he wants to put God in a box… to build God a house. Yet God has entirely different plans.
This episode of Work in Progress is presented by Joe Clifford, John Magnuson, Cameron Moore, and Millie Snyder. Production by Nathan Culberson.
What is Work in Progress?
Work in Progress is a weekly online worship experience that is very much evolving. The name came out of the idea that we’re all an incomplete project, but that what we are now is not the end result of our life.
By God’s grace, we are all a work in progress. So is our effort here.
We are excited to dive into the digital space to address, question, and wrestle with the works in progress that we and the world are.
Our dream for Work in Progress is to purposefully, powerfully worship God in a digitally native way.
By no means do we have this all figured out, nor do we know what it will look like in a year or two. But there is something fun, liberating, and exciting about that.
Join us in the journey of this work in progress, of the worship service, our lives, the church, and the world. We know there will be bumps along the way, but who knows where it will lead?

Blessed to Be a Blessing
God makes covenants with various people in the Bible: with Abraham, with Noah, with Moses and the Israelites… These covenants embody God’s blessings to us and they empower those blessed to be a blessing to the wider world.
How are we blessed? How might we be a blessing?
We encounter God through creation through the basics of life: The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat. How do you find God in the beauty of creation? What is our place in this created order?
Why do we worship God? What’s happening when we worship? As Israel’s first prayer book and hymnal, the Psalms offer a glimpse of Israel’s worship life and frame the purpose and intention of our own. Join us as we dive into the Psalms to explore the “whys” of worship.
God's Tomorrow Today
What does tomorrow hold? That’s a question we often wonder about. Perhaps a more important question is “Who holds tomorrow?” The Book of Revelation answers: God holds our tomorrows. How might that provide hope amid our todays?
In John’s gospel, Jesus says, “I no longer call you servants… but I have called you friends.” How does this reality impact the ways we relate to one another? Join us as we consider Christ’s call of friendship and the ways we might deepen our relationships with one another.
Signs & Wonders
Signs are designed to show us the way. John’s gospel details seven signs intended to reveal the nature of God in Christ. Join us as we explore how these signs and other wonders point us to the way that is the truth about life we know in Christ.
Behold! It’s a word of wonder that calls us to stand in awe. It’s a word that comes up again and again in the stories of Advent and Christmas. Amid a season that places so many demands on our time and resources, join us as we answer God’s call to behold the hope, peace, joy and love of Christmas.
In Genesis 2, God creates the Garden of Eden and gifts it to humanity, calling them to “till and keep” the garden. How are we called to cultivate the gifts given to us by God? Join us as we consider this question that lies at the heart of our discipleship.
Out of Control, Into Faith
Ever feel like you’re losing control? Circumstances these days can certainly create such feelings. What if that’s a good thing? What if it helps us realize we never really were as in control as we thought?
