We believe that we are called to give our entire lives to God. We give of our time, talents, skills and gifts that God has given us — all in ways that help to further God’s Kingdom. One of the ways we grow as disciples of Jesus is how we use our gifts in ministry. These things might provide a sense of fulfillment, such as leading a youth Bible study or a women’s small group. Or it may be things that just need to get done, aren’t a lot of fun, but may in fact bring joy to one so gifted — like auditing the church’s finances or cleaning up after a parish-wide event. They may be things that happen inside the church walls or outside of them — such as the lawyers and doctors of our congregation who provide services for free or at reduced rates to those who wouldn’t receive help otherwise. It could be having a neighbor over for dinner or inviting them to come to church with you.
There are many ways to give of our time and talents. Maybe you don’t know what your gifts are, how you could best be plugged in or where the ministry needs are. Please feel free to call any of our clergy or member of staff and they would be happy to help you get connected.
