He has given each one of us a special gift according to the generosity of Christ... He is the one who gave these gifts to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. — Ephesians 4:7, 11, 12 (New Living Translation)
If you have never explored what your spiritual gifts might be, we encourage you to begin by using a short assessment tool, called Hitting Your S.T.R.I.D.E. which was developed by the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection for use in their congregation. They have given us permission to use it here at Bethany. Click the link below to learn more.
