Discover Your Spiritual Gifts

as part of the 2015  Finding the Life in Your Years All-Church Project

Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God,
serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.
1 Peter 4:10

Do you pray for the needs of others?
Are you naturally a good listener?
Do you enjoy lending a hand?
Everyone has unique God-given gifts and talents that come alive when they are engaged and used to give glory to God and help our fellow brothers and sisters. During the Summer months of 2015, you are invited to take part in an individual Spiritual Gifts Survey, a specially designed, short survey that can help identify and name the God-given gifts working within you.
