Immanuel Lutheran church


Connect with christ through serving

The Lord we follow served. He served the poor, the outcast, the sick. He served all people by giving his life for us and rising again. For followers of Jesus serving is a response to the love, mercy, and forgiveness that God has given us in Christ. Serving is as much a part of the life of a Christian as is believing. One of the purposes of the church is to help followers of Jesus find ways to use their God-given talents to serve.

In order to help you find ways to serve, please take this spiritual gifts assessment. Then indicate which areas of serving best ft with your gifts. Submitting your selections will help us to find you a place to serve.
