In His Steps

For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...
Mark 10:45

In His Steps

Each of us is called to be the light of the world.  Are you feeling God's nudge to serve in some way?  Maybe you are called to lead in a ministry area?  Feel like trying something new?
Let's start the conversation by participating in our yearly IN HIS STEPS invitation.
You are gifted! Let's find out how you can share your gifts!

In His Steps Commitment Forms

Please complete the form by Commitment Sunday (October 1, 2023).

Spiritual Gifts Inventory

Spiritual gifts are qualities given to Christian believers for the building up of the whole body of Christ. They are not given for personal gain, but for ministry in the world. Learning about the spiritual gifts we have, as well as helping our congregation learn about their gifts, can be useful when we pair it with opportunities to engage our community.
