Spiritual Gifts Class

Dis­cov­er­ing God’s Vision for Your Life

Spir­i­tu­al Gifts Class

Start­ing Sun­day Evening, May 20th at 5:00pm
(Exact Tim­ing & Dura­tion to be deter­mined by those who show up!)

Embed­ded in each Chris­t­ian is a hunger to serve Christ by serv­ing oth­ers. Those who are loved need to love. But how? What is the best way to love in the name of Christ?

Accord­ing to the Bible, each of us have been giv­en gifts by God, called “spir­i­tu­al gifts,” with which to serve God and love each oth­er. These gifts are not our skills or tal­ents; they are gifts of the Holy Spir­it for work­ing out God’s pur­pose in our lives. Togeth­er, these gifts endow the Church — the Body of Christ — with the pow­er to do mighty works in His name.

This class, facil­i­tat­ed by Bill Rock­well and Melanie Loun­ds (with help from oth­ers like Matt Olson and Rod Fuller), is designed to help you dis­cov­er and learn to use the gifts that the Lord has giv­en you. Many in our con­gre­ga­tion have found the class so help­ful that they have tak­en it sev­er­al times. Please join us for the life chang­ing, and gift affirm­ing, course. All those in mid­dle school and old­er are encour­aged to join us.

For more infor­ma­tion, call the church at 224‑2636.

The Gifts he gave were…to equip the saints for the work of min­istry, for build­ing up the body of Christ.” -Eph­esians 4:11–12
