How to meet the challenges ahead by discovering your gifs and talents now

God’s plan for the church calls for each member of the Body of Christ to play a vital role. Sometimes we think that serving God is an obligation, a duty, and that it isn’t meant to be enjoyable. The truth is, though, that God wants us to find joy and fulfillment when we serve. That happens when we serve in a role that matches who God created us to be.

In this updated edition of Serving from the Heart, church members will take a 6-week journey of self-discovery as they learn more about how the Body of Christ is intended to function, and what that means to each person.

This study (also workable in 7 Sunday School sessions) leads adults through assessing their spiritual gifts, talents and abilities, resources, individual style, dreams and experiences…all adding up to an enhanced capacity to serve God and neighbor.

Also available are a Workbook and DVD.
