The Body of Christ at Work

Recently in our study on Ephesians we talked about how the CHURCH is a body made up of many different parts with EACH serving a purpose. 

(Ephesians 4:11-16,  Romans 12:4-8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-31; 1 Peter 4:10-11)

What is a Spiritual Gift?  It helps me to think about being BORN.  All of us have been born PHYSICALLY, right?   As we grow PHYSICALLY we begin to discover our PHYSICAL GIFTS AND ABILITIES.   Well, when we become Born Again, SPIRITUALLY the same thing happens; only SPIRITUALLY.  As we grow spiritually in the Lord, we begin to discover our SPIRITUAL gifts and abilities.

The beautiful thing is that when the Church’s Spiritual Gifts are pooled together you get a beautiful expression of the Body of Christ. 

For the next few Sundays we are going to HIGHLIGHT various ministry opportunities by having a Ministry Fair in the Foyer of the Church.   I encourage you to check it out every week to learn more about the ministry scope of the church and to prayerfully discern where you might fit into the body. 

This is the first time we’ve done this and it is a work in progress.  If you have any ideas or suggestions please feel free to contact anyone on the VISIONING COMMITTEE:  Janna Klein, Rick Turner, Inmann Dabney, Darlene Stevens or myself. 

The following is what is going to be happening for the next THREE SUNDAYS:

Sunday, February 2nd              Missions
Sunday, February 9th                 The Core House Ministries
Sunday, February 16th            Agape Ministries

More to come, were still fine tuning the calendar.
