Knowing your passions and gifts gives you the freedom to say “No” when someone on the nominating team asks you to serve on a committee or team or do a job you don’t feel passionate about. After saying no to a service opportunity that doesn’t interest you, then please tell the nominating team member what does interest you or what you are passionate about so they can help you find a team or group where you can serve that “fits” you.
If you don’t know what you are passionate about or what your spiritual gifts are, a Gifted to Serve class will be offered in September to help you figure that out. The Ministry Team’s Equipping Team would like to help everyone find a service area in the church and/or community where you can passionately serve using your God-given gifts, experiences, and personality. Just imagine what this church and the world would be like if everyone was serving others with love using their passions and gifts.
