Share Your Gifts

Romans 12:6-8

“Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us exercise them: . . . if ministry, in ministering; if one is a teacher, in teaching; if one exhorts, in exhortation; if one contributes, in generosity; . . . if one does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.”

    Discipleship

    We have been blessed to serve alongside so many gifted people and we firmly believe in the Church as a body with many parts! If you are on this page it is likely that you have felt the tug to 'give of your firstfruits' in a new or different way.

    Service for God is not one we are shamed or forced into. The Father desires that we freely choose for it. This choice ultimately stems from the great joy of being seen and known by Him. One of which is so exciting and overwhelming that we have to share it.
