2017 Time & Talents

This month we ask each of you to think about the gifts – the special abilities – you have been given by God. What do you like to do? What are your interests? What do your friends and family members feel you do well? What are your passions? Answers to these questions will help you identify your gifts and abilities. We are asked to share our gifts with others…..

“Each one, as a good manager of God’s different gifts, must use for the good of others the special gift he/she has received from God.” – 1 Peter 4:10

Please read through the serving options in this year’s Time & Talent booklet and fill out and print the response form (page 11). You can return it to the church office by February 26th. You may also fill out a form at the church – print copies are available on a gathering space table and in the office.
