Spiritual Gifts – Opportunities

As Pastor Brett has led us through a message series on spiritual gifts, Putting the Pieces Together, and we have had an opportunity as a church to take a Spiritual Gifts assessment, we are now more aware of how God has gifted each of us and how we can come together as the body of Christ to serve Him boldly and effectively within the areas of our gifting.

We are all gifted. How has God gifted you? Take a look below at the spiritual gifts and current opportunities to use your gifts here within the New Life body. Let us know how you want to plug in! We need you! Also, if you have a heart for a ministry opportunity that isn’t listed, let us know that too! Email office@nlcwoodbury.org or talk to any ministry leader.
