The Bible says "Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone." (1 Corinthians 12:4-6) God, through the Holy Spirit, gives spiritual gifts to everyone and not all have the same gifts, but all are given by God for God's mission in the world.
The question is the same for many - how do we discover what our spiritual gifts are. Some folks are lucky enough to have others who identify gifts in them - others do not have a clue how God has gifted them and for what purpose.
Many people do not know how to get involved in the ministry of a local congregation because they don't know what they should be doing. The most unfortunate cases exist where people are placed in roles that they do not enjoy and for which they are not gifted. This leads to disappointment and burn out.
@RLC we want everyone to be involved in the ministry of the church. "Ministry" is not something that just the pastors do - everyone is a minister at RLC. We want you to feel welcome to connect with us in meaningful ways - ways that are enriching and fulfilling. The first step in the process of discovering where God might be calling you to get involved is by learning how God has gifted you for ministry.
We invite you to download our Spiritual Gifts inventory and fill it out. You can score it yourself and get a better idea of where you have specific spiritual gifts. This will be a valuable tool for you as you look for ways to get involved at RLC in ways that are meaningful and fulfilling. You can download the survey as a .pdf file by CLICKING THIS LINK.
