God has created you and shaped your life in unique and wonderful ways so that you can experience the joy of helping the Kingdom of God “to come on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). We do different things to make a living, but we all have the same vocation, or calling, which is to use our talents, abilities, interests, personality, and experience to follow Jesus, to strengthen His Body, the Church, and to enlarge God’s Kingdom on earth. When we use our abilities for God’s glory, we come to know God more fully as we obey Him and He accomplishes His work through our lives.
This Inventory allows members to discover their unique “SHAPE for ministry.” As you know, we are proposing changes to our church structure in order to make it possible for our members to use their abilities in ways that are more tangible, time-limited, and fun! This project-oriented approach is much more flexible and responsive than was our previous committee-focused approach, and it also allows many more opportunities for service to persons who are not yet members of our congregation. In order for this new approach to work well, though, the leaders of our Experience & Connect Team, Care & Community Team, Reach & Go Team, and Invest Team need to know what “SHAPE” you’re in! We are asking every member and regular attender to complete a Personal Inventory and return it to the church office. You certainly don’t have to put down anything you don’t wish to put down, but this information will help us to help you as you seek to become all God made you to be. Thanks in advance for your help!
