Why Serve?

  • God wants us to know about our spiritual gifts so we can grow.
  • When we serve others, we are fulfilled.
  • When we grow in our faith, others grow too.
  • When others grow, God's Kingdom grows.
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to SERVE others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms. —1 Peter 4:10

What Are Spiritual Gifts?
