At Spotswood, it’s important to us that you know you are valued and useful. Everyone matters, so we don’t want you to get lost in the shuffle. The members of our church are burdened about four things: worship, small groups, community and missions. It would be a tragedy if you stopped at the worship part. We want you to get involved, which is why we’ve provided the resources below.
“Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations but it is the same God which worketh in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-7
First we had Kairos, an exciting week-long outreach event for the community, but over the past few years, we thought, “What if we could do Kairos all year long?” That’s why we’ve given you a full page of opportunities to serve. We know you may be worried that you don’t have any helpful skill sets, or don’t know what they are. That’s okay, it’s normal, but we’d like to help you out with that. The Holy Spirit graciously gifts every member of the Body of Christ. While talent is something you receive at your physical birth, a spiritual gift is something you receive at your spiritual birth. Below you’ll find a guide to many of the ministries at Spotswood as well as a spiritual gift inventory which will help you understand more about how your gifts fit in with the work we are doing at Spotswood.
Consider your spiritual gifts, natural abilities and skills, as well as the experiences God has allowed you to have, and ask God how these abilities can be used in the Body of Christ here at Spotswood. Once you’re ready to get involved, you can find a complete listing of all the ways you can invest in Spotswood, as well as many ways to help in the community and throughout the world. Don’t stop here, start meeting needs!
