Last Sunday we begin a new series entitled, “S.H.A.P.E. Finding Your Fit In Ministry.” This series presents our Discovering Ministry Class 301 material over six weeks.
Each week we will address a different aspect of how God uniquely shaped you. You will discover how God can use your Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality and Experiences for effective ministry.
Each message is designed to help you recognize and do what God has gifted you to do best. This is one of our Engagement Goals for 2013-14. This week’s message entitled, “Gifted For Service,” will focus on the Spiritual Gifts part of your S.H.A.P.E.
Everyone in the world has four of these five attributes… but only those who have put their faith in a relationship with God receive Spiritual Gifts.
Romans 12:6a (NLT) says,
“In His grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well.”
Notice the word “given.” When you become a believer, God gives you a new life purpose and your Spiritual Gifts are a vital part of His purpose for you.
Join us as we talk about the importance of Spiritual Gifts and how you can discover, develop and use the gifts that God has given to you.
