Gifts Assessment Link

If you are looking to take a spiritual gift assessment to help give you an idea of how you might become more involved with our home group, please use this link. This is the website that we are trying to get all of the home groups to use so that we have a common language as a church. There are three parts to the test... 1) personality 2) gifts & 3) leadership style.

Once you go to the link you will need to create a user name and password and fill out some basic contact info. This all goes to a data base for me (traci) to look at.

We would love to talk with you more specifically about what spiritual gifts are all about and how we view that as an essential part of our group!

Celebrating the Kingdom

Last week several of us when to Stop Hunger Now to package meals to be sent overseas. We learned that most of the meals we were packaging are going to Haiti to help with those who have been hurt by the Hurricane.

Some of the coolest things:

Michael wearing Lisa while packaging boxes. 

Getting to try some of the freshly cooked meals.

Having conversations while scooping soy, rice, and veggies together. 

Watching how quick Nathan moves from station to station. We couldn't have done it as quickly with you! 

Knowing that this organization has a long term process in place to make sure individuals get the nutrition that they need. 

Beating last years amount by 186 meals. 

Thanks for everyone who helped out!
