Weekday Worship

Generations Norcross

Weekday Worship is a podcast of Generations Church in Norcross, GA designed to take our conversations about the gospel and life with God outside of just Sunday sermons and into the week. Whether through discussions of the sermon, theology, culture, or anything else, our desire with this podcast is to “exhort one another every day, as long as it is called ‘today’” (Hebrews 3:13), and we pray that you are blessed by it.
