How to Get Involved
We believe that the Holy Spirit has given spiritual gifts to each person. This is based on
Biblical passages found in 1Peter:4:10, Romans 12:4-6a and 1Corinthians 12:4-7, 11. This scripture
tells us that each of us has received a gift from the Holy Spirit and that we are each called to use our
gift. It also states that we are all one body in Christ and that each member, whether they have a real
high profile gift or one used more quietly, is essential to that body. Our community needs you, because
without you, we are incomplete!
How do I know if I have a Gift?
You can start by clicking on the DISCOVER
YOUR GIFTS link below, you can
discover what gifts, skills and interests you may
have within you by filling out a small questionnaire
to see what skill sets you have to help serve. Also,
praying about it and asking those closest to you what
gift they think you have are other good indicators.
Finally, if you are using your gifts you should derive
both JOY and a sense of FULFILLMENT OR ACCOMPLISHMENT.
As one member put it so well: "I wish this gardening
felt more like work because I just love it!" Then
she went on to say "Oh, I get it, this is what this
whole GIFT thing is about, isn't it?" If you can feel
that way about your volunteering at First Church then
you will know you have found your gift!
