Growing In Faith Through Service - G.I.F.T.S

God has given each Christian two vitally important gifts. The first is the gift of faith in Jesus Christ, His work of redemption, and thus the forgiveness of sins.  The second is the gift of one or more special abilities, which are to be used for the purpose of unifying the Body of Christ and for the growth of God's kingdom. These abilities are called spiritual gifts and they are received through our baptism.  

Like other presents, it is impossible to fully appreciate and make use of spiritual gifts until they have been opened. Contact the church office to take the self-assessment which will help you identify the gifts you have received in greatest measure. Then return to this page and fill out the form.  You will be contacted by a member of our leadership team to discuss how to best use your gifts and talents in a volunteer capacity.
