Spiritual Gift Assessment

"Love your neighbor"
          ~Jesus
 
 
 
United Methodists have believed from the beginning that each of us is called to participate in the outreaching ministry of Jesus Christ. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Movement, described this work in simple, practical  terms: "Do all the good you can, in all the places you can, to all the people you can."
 
 
 
Putting our faith into action is at the very heart of our Christian calling.
 
 
By volunteering to serve - be it down the hall, around the corner, or around the world
- every person in the church has the opportunity  to live their calling more faithfully.

Check out Walk to Emmaus!
A Journey with Christ
While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and walked with them. - Luke 24:15
 
The walk to Emmaus is an experience of Christian spiritual renewal and formation that begins with a three-day short course in Christianity. It is an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love is revealed to you through other believers.
The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with the prayerful discernment and invitation from a sponsor. After one accepts this invitation they complete an application. The Emmaus leaders prayerfully consider each applicant and in God’s time, the person is invited to attend a three-day experience of New Testament Christianity as a lifestyle.
Following the three-day experience, participants are joined in small groups to support each other in their ongoing walk with Christ.

 

 Through the formational process of accountable discipleship in small groups and participation in the Emmaus community, each participant’s individual gifts and servant-leadership skills are developed for use in the local church and its mission. Participants are encouraged to find ways to live out their individual call to discipleship in their home, church, and community.
The objective of Emmaus is to inspire, challenge, and equip the local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, communities and places of work. Emmaus lifts up a way for our grace-filled lives to be lived and shared with others.
