why serve

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. – 1 Peter 4:10.


How to use and discover your spiritual gifts

God has given you specific spiritual gifts and abilities to help people in our church, communities and world. Many people find it helpful to use a spiritual gifts discovery tool to affirm how God has gifted and shaped them to help others. With this in mind, we encourage you to take advantage of our new online Spiritual Gifts Discovery Assessment for valuable insights about your God-given talents.
