Spiritual Gifts Inventory

Throughout the New Testament, we read that the Holy Spirit gives gifts to those who belong in God's family to build up and grow his Church (i.e., Romans 12:6-8; 1 Peter 4:10-11; 1 Corinthians 12). Part of our job as a local church is to help those in our care to discover their spiritual gifting and learn how to use it in the church, and the first step is to talk with Pastor Michelle 

I am looking forward to our conversation about the results of your Spiritual Gifts Inventory.  Chick on the link and identify a time when we can meet in person or by telephone.

Christian Living Resources

Below, you can find a list of resources that are sure to help you in your Christian walk. Some of these resources are not affiliated with our church but have proven to be fruitful for many believers.

The United Methodist Church Denomination

The United Methodist Church was created in 1968, but Methodism dates back to John and Charles Wesley who sought to spread the Methodist movement they began as student small group at Oxford. At about the same time, people like Philip Otterbein and Martin Boehm were leading similar movements that helped people grow in their faith. Those two strands of Christianity came together decades later to form The United Methodist Church.
