UPCOMING EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES

ADVENT 2016

Evergreens and The Advent Wreath

 

The beginning of Advent is a time for the hanging of the green, decoration of the church with evergreen wreaths, boughs, or trees that help to symbolize the new and everlasting life brought through Jesus the Christ. Some churches have a special weekday service, or the first Sunday evening of Advent, or even the first Sunday morning of Advent, in which the church is decorated and the Advent wreath put in place. This service is most often primarily of music, especially choir and hand bells, and Scripture reading, along with an explanation of the various symbols as they are placed in the sanctuary.

CALLED & GIFTED

Called & Gifted™ is a three part discernment process intended to help people discern their charisms, gifts.  All three parts of the process are necessary to determine where you are gifted and how to use your gifts for the building up of the Church.

 

Part one is the Called and Gifted workshop, this five—workshop series lays the foundation for the beginning of discernment.  You will learn about the gifts of the Holy Spirit and God’s plan through the New Testament teaching.

 

Part two is the One Hour Gifts interview, this is an invaluable part of the process.   You will spend time one-on-one with a moderator to review your spiritual gifts inventory.

 

Part three, the substance of the discernment process, is when we come back together to  evaluate your results.  The last part of this process will teach you how to identify ways you learned to control life as a child that get in the way of using your charisms as an adult..
