On January 4th, we will delve into discovering our Spiritual Gifts. Everyone (7th grade and up) will receive a copy of a
Spiritual Gift survey to complete. We ask that you complete the survey and return them NO LATER THAN January 18th.
Here is the link to the survey: http://www.lifeway.com/lwc/files/lwcF_PDF_Discover_Your_Spiritual_Gifts.pdf
Why do we NEED to discover our gifts?
Each gift of the Spirit is vital, and none are more important than others. No matter what your giftedness is, you play an important role in strengthening the church.
Did You Know? 63% of Christians Don’t Know Their Spiritual Gifts?
A study from George Barna showed that nearly two-thirds of Christians don’t know their spiritual gift(s), don’t think they have a gift at all, or claim to have a gift that is not actually biblical.
Most Christians know something about Spiritual Gifts, but many don’t realize how important they are. Believers are given Spiritual Gifts to contribute to the growth of the church. Spiritual Gifts are important because Scripture says that the church needs all of the gifts working together to help build the Body of Christ. Every believer counts! This pamphlet includes a Spiritual Gifts Questionnaire to determine which gift(s) you might have.
The Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to Christians to help build the life and ministry of the Church. Yet, many Christians do not use or even recognize their spiritual gift.
