Discovering God’s Vision for Your Life: You and Your Spiritual Gifts
Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions?
Who Am I?
Why am I here?
What’s my place in this world?
How can I make a difference?
What does God want me to do with my life?
The course Discovering God’s Vision for Your Life; You and Your Spiritual Gifts will address these questions and more. Along the way, course participants will discover their gifts and consider how to use those gifts.
Here are some examples of the course content:
You are No Ghost
The Jesus Connection
Love: The Heart of Spiritual Gifts
Spiritual Gifts and Burnout
Bloom Where You are Planted
Beginning Sunday July 22, the class will meet every Sunday for four consecutive weeks from 10:30 – 1:00 at Grace. We pray that your participation in this course will help individuals explore their interests within our faith community. A registration fee of $20.00 is suggested to cover the cost of material, refreshments and other supplies.
To learn more about the course, contact Cindy Anderson, Jim Hobbs and Sara Oehlert.
