Spiritual Gifts

spiritual gifts dove

God calls us as believers to discover and use our spiritual gifts in order to grow the Church in Spirit and in numbers. FBC needs your gifts. Join us in the Judson Room for an in-depth study this Spring during our “Lenten Celebration of Spiritual Gifts.” We offer two sessions of eight-week classes for your convenience — Sundays during the 10:10 a.m. Discipleship Hour and Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. Examine the Holy Spirit’s part in spiritual gifts and discover or uncover your gifts. Also, experience an internship to test out your gifts. To that end, please plan on an approximate 30-minute interview and a maximum two-hour internship prior to commissioning.

Relish in joy and ease of service when you implement God’s power within you. Our main resources include The Holy Spirit as Teacher, Scripture, and SpiritGifts, by Patricia D. Brown. Classes run 60-90 minutes.

God calls. Please answer.
