“Each one of us has a body with many parts, and these parts all have different uses. In the same way, we are many, but in Christ we are all one body. Each one is a part of that body, and each part belongs to the other parts. We all have different gifts, each of which came because of the grace God gave us.” (Romans 12: 4-6 NCV)

“The whole body depends on Christ, and all parts of the body are joined and held together. Each part does its own work to make the whole body grow and be strong with love.” (Ephesians 4: 16 NCV)

Many ministries within our church need us to do our part to make the whole body grow and be strong. How do our Spiritual Gifts fit the needs of The First United Methodist Church of North Liberty body? How can we help the body grow and continue its ministries?

Not sure what your Spiritual gifts are?  Spiritual Gifts: The United Methodist Church provides a link to a page on the United Methodist Church Website. There are many articles that will provide information as you explore your Spiritual Gifts. The Spiritual Gifts Assessment is also available.
