Hello Spirit Inspired Children of God,
This year as we think about the mission and ministries that we are called into with and for God, let's explore, as one body of Christ what our Spiritual gifts are. As a congregation as a whole, I would like each of you to take a Spiritual Gifts Assessment, so that we discover what God has gifted each of us, by the power of the Holy Spirit with and work on how we can collectively best use our gifts for what God may be asking of us. Let us take a journey into our giftedness together and learn more about how God living in us works out God's own redeeming mission through our participation in it. The first step is the Spiritual Gifts Assessment, so that we can inventory of all of our gifts as a congregation. Then we will explore weekly, as part of the offering time, what each of these gifts mean and how we use them as part of our gifted offering unto God. Our current 2024 mission and ministry goals will be read in church and will be posted on the bulletin boards and/or on white chart paper and posted in the fellowship hall. If you have access to the Internet, please go to the following website to take the assessment. It seems long but it goes pretty quickly; probably 10-15 minutes of your time.
https://www.umcdiscipleship.org/spiritual-gifts-inventory/en Once you have your results, please print them out or write them down and report them to Sharon for record keeping and we will provide congregational results once we have them. Make sure you put your name on the printed results.
I would love it if we could have the results returned by February 15th but I understand that that might not give you enough time, so please have them no later than March 1st.
The reason I want them as early as possible is so that, we can begin taking a journey into these through the Lenten season as we focus on what God might be asking of us. If you do not have access to the Internet, please contact myself or Sharon, and we will get you a print copy of the assessment, and we will do the data entry to get your results. I hope you will find enjoyment in discovering the gifts that you have been given by God through the grace of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit as much as I have.
Grace and Peace,
Dysart Iowa UMC
