Rediscovering Our Spiritual Gifts in Advent – Upcoming Adult Forums

Advent is a time of waiting for the gift of Christ to us—and to dream about the gifts we will give to and receive from others. It’s the perfect time to rediscover our own spiritual gifts and how God wishes to work through us. During our next three adult forums, we will use Charles Bryant’s book, Rediscovering Our Spiritual Gifts,  as well as his extensive spiritual gifts inventory to assess our spiritual gifts and how they might be understood and applied. Even if you filled out a survey recently, you should take it again. God inspires us in different ways over time.

Books and inventories have already been purchased and will be given for free to those who commit themselves to this four-meeting series.


Spiritual Gifts Class Details

During this week, read the first four chapters of Rediscovering Our Spiritual Gifts by Charles Bryant. Pray every night for four nights for God to enlighten you about your spiritual gifts. Then take the Spiritual Gifts Inventory, which is available in the booklets passed out on Sunday. There are plenty more in the office if you don’t already have a copy. After you have scored the inventory and identified your top 5 or so gifts, read the longer descriptions of these gifts that appear in the later chapters of the book; they are organized in alphabetical order. Bring your inventories with you Sunday, Dec. 10; we will discuss any results that people may wish to share.

Some people have asked how to obtain a copy of the book. Used copies are available on


Dec. 17: Discussion of gifts’ possible applications.


Spiritual Gifts Class Details

If you would like to join our class, please pick up a copy of the book and a spiritual inventory in the office. Then fill out the spiritual inventory and read about your top gifts. On December 10, we will meet in small groups to discuss some of our gifts.
