Franklin First United Methodist Church | Franklin, OH
We hear much about the gifts that God has given us, but at times we may wonder if we have any gifts at all. The world has convinced us that we're either too old, too young, too tired, too lame, too uneducated and too poor to be a vital "anything" in God's plan. What could we possibly have to share that will make any difference.
This assessment tool may help you to begin to discern what your unique gifts are.
If you feel God pulling at your heart to be more involved with the ministry of the church, please see Pastor Bryan.
