New Book & Bible Studies during Lent

Called to the Disciple’s Path

How are you being called to use your God-given gifts to LEAD your life as a disciple of Jesus? Join Pastor Melissa during Lent as we explore how our Methodist heritage and theology helps us continue down the path of discipleship, discovering how God is inviting you to come alive in your faith journey. We’ll be looking at how to live lives of meaning and purpose everywhere we go, and looking for new opportunities to follow God at church, at home, at work, and in the community.

Join Pastor Melissa on Wednesdays during Lent from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the Distance Learning Center of the BLC (the large classroom, above Founder’s Hall).

Spiritual Gifts are special abilities used for spiritual purposes. Of God’s design and grace, these gifts are bestowed upon us by the Holy Spirit according to God’s purpose for our lives. We each have talents that enable us to train in different fields. However, it is in the utilization of our spiritual gifts that we fulfill God’s purpose for us–in the church, in the community, and in the world. Identifying your spiritual gifts provides insight as to what you can do to achieve the most fulfillment in service.
