Do you know what your spiritual gifts are? What are you talented at and passionate about?
God uniquely created all of us with special gifts and talents to serve as a part of the body of Christ! Pierce Chapel wants to help you discover your gifts and help connect you with ways to use them for the glory of God! Here’s how you can participate:
We will be creating a database of all gifts and talents so that we can reach out and connect you with meaningful ways to serve and use your gifts as opportunities arise!
For further information on ways you can serve within the church or within the community, please contact Roseanna at firstname.lastname@example.org or (706) 327-9807 ext. 3.
At Pierce Chapel, we believe that children are valued members who are fully able to experience and participate in worship, grow in discipleship and enjoy fellowship with each other! We also believe that by partnering with parents we can increase our impact and help children develop strong foundations in faith.
