Gifts & Talents

One of the things the Bible teaches us is that God doesn’t make junk. Everyone has gifts and talents that are needed by others. Some may have more gifts than others do, but no one has everything that is needed, so NO ONE can be a Christian believer all by him or herself.  We need to be in community.


The Bible calls this the Body of Christ. Just as eyes without feet to travel very far and feet without eyes stub their toes a lot, so the Body of Christ needs all of its members, even those who may believe they are just a nail on the little toe. All you have to do is have one ripped out to know how valuable it is to you!

Some people don’t know what gifts they have, or of what use they might be to the whole Body of Christ. Come talk to us, or to our pastor. I’m sure we can help you find something you are good at, enjoy doing, and would be a great service to God and His Church!
