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.

“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
