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 online for an in-depth study this Spring during our “Lenten Celebration of Spiritual Gifts.” We offer eight weekly classes online for your convenience — 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 approximately 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.
