Gifted

We'd love for you to be involved

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.

1 Corinthians 12:4-7

We are gifted for the privilege of serving God and others

We believe we don’t have to do this, we get to do this. Jesus gave His life for us and left us a powerful example when He washed His disciples’ feet. His overwhelming grace in our lives makes no job too insignificant when it comes to lifting up the name of Jesus and loving His people. We serve because we want to follow in His footsteps. We serve excellently because He deserves nothing less. We serve together because this is His church, and this is our church.

So please get involved by joining a team to serve. .

Knowing our spiritual gifts is a key to be used by God to serve him and others. If you don't already know your gifts, or if you'd like to know if other gifts have been released for a season, you can follow this link to take a spiritual gifts test.
