March 10th News

March 6, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

This week we will continue our study of spiritual gifts. We’ve been learning about what they are and how they are used to build up the body of Christ (the church). We’ve also seen that every believer has, at least, one gift (probably several) necessary for the church to function effectively.

This is pretty cool stuff because it means that everyone has a purpose and calling in the family of God. With this in mind, it is important for us to understand our gifts and consider how they can be used in our particular church.

Sunday, we will see how these gifts are often “clustered” or “grouped”  together for a particular purpose or focus. We will also look at the difference between being a volunteer and being called.

I encourage you to come ready to discover what God is calling you for to build his kingdom and experience the joy of becoming who he has made you to be! I also encourage you to visit the “Doug’s Notes” section of our website ( In it, I have listed all the spiritual gifts we find in scripture with a description of each. As you read through it, see what resonates with who you are and the things you enjoy and are passionate about.

Finally, Easter season is coming up (Palm Sunday– March 24; Good Friday– March 29; Easter Sunday– March 31). This is a great time to invite someone to church to hear the Good News of the gospel. Perhaps you have a friend, neighbor, or family member who would enjoy to join us!


Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,
