“Groundwork is a resource for individuals, congregations and their leaders to assist them in engaging Holy Scripture and the mission of God?s Church… It asks congregational members and leaders to dig deeply into the soil of their mission so that they may do serious and joyful learning about the Gospel and their community of faith.”
