Opening Our Spiritual Gifts

Have you noticed the box of spiritual gifts at church?  The Spiritual Gifts Ministry Team, a new deacon team, has been hard at work these past months, preparing to help you find and unwrap your own spiritual gifts. 

 Last month, we reminded you that spiritual gifts are particular abilities given by Christ through the Holy Spirit for the good of the whole church.  These gifts allow us to effectively do Christ’s work in the world.  We are all given spiritual gifts, but not the same ones.  Do you know what yours are?  Have you wondered if they have changed over time?

 Starting April 19th, we will explore the topic of spiritual gifts during the Bible study hour on Sunday mornings.  Lesson plans will be distributed (or click H E R E to access a copy)so that you may come prepared to learn as much as possible as we delve into spiritual gifts.  We will learn what they are and how we receive them, explore what our own gifts are, and consider ways to use the gifts we have received from the Holy Spirit.  At the end of the three week series, we will have a time devoted during worship service for those interested to committing to using their spiritual gifts. 

 It is now time to explore your spiritual gifts as your teachers help you unwrap them.  Please plan to participate fully on Sunday, April 19, April 26, and May 3 from 9:45 to 10:45 am.
