Core Value 5:Spiritual gifts discovery and utilization are essential aspects of discipleship for every believer.
Finding and using your spiritual gifts is critical to Christian maturity and ministry. It’s so critical, in fact, that CVC is devoting six weeks this fall to this very topic.
The weekend of October 4-5, we will launch a spiritual adventure which will forever change the culture of CVC! It begins with a church-wide service project on Saturday, October 4. All CVC people will be invited to join together at a nearby Indian Reservation and serve in a wide variety of projects (both indoors and outdoors).
Then, during the weekend services on October 4-5we will dive into the first of six weekends of worship and teaching for the adventure. During these weeks, you will have the opportunity to:
- Discover your uniqueness in Christ and the way God has equipped you to make a difference for all eternity.
- Learn from Pastor John as he teaches about finding and using your gifts to maximize your impact.
- Study and discuss the material in an Adventure Group or Class which will meet weekly during the adventure.
- Read a devotion each day about the topic that week, to help you get grounded in God’s Word on the subject of your gifts and abilities.
- Serve in a high-impact ministry by signing up at the CVC Ministry Fair.
The CVC Fall Spiritual Adventure has the potential to change the rest of your life and to impact our community for Christ. Please be in prayer now as we seek to find what God has for us this fall:
- Pray for the leaders at CVC—that the Holy Spirit would guide them as they seek to shape the Spiritual Adventure.
- Pray for Pastor John as he prepares to teach us.
- Pray for Pastor Darrel and the Arts team as they lead us in worship and other performing arts.
- Pray for the leaders of the Groups and Classes as they teach and facilitate discussion about these critical issues.
- Pray for yourself—that your heart would be open for God to do a mighty work in your life and ministry.
