Gifts

A major mission of the church is to offer encouragement and an invitation to discover one's gifts and to use them for others in service to God. We have been called by Jesus to abundant life and we discover the fullness of our lives when we begin to share ourselves - our possessions, talents, and passions - to bring God's reign of justice and peace to this earth.

By discovering our gifts and sharing them we also build a community of disciples within the church. When this happens everyone is able to see that the mission of the church is beyond our doors and not simply to serve and sustain our common life.
