Volunteering and Discipleship
dis·ci ple·ship - Embracing and assisting in spreading the teaching of another.
The church is the Body of Christ, built on the time, talents and financial gifts of all of us! As members of Holy Cross and disciples of Jesus Christ, we all share a commitment to spreading God’s word and sharing God’s love in the world. To live our lives in and for Christ in both church and society - that’s at the heart of discipleship.
Spiritual Gifts - What Are They?
Scripture tells us that Spiritual Gifts are enablements or capacities that are divinely bestowed upon us and freely given by God, not earned or merited. They are to be used for the benefit of others, for the purpose of building up God’s church. There are many different Spiritual Gifts and we might be blessed with one or more of these gifts. As a disciple, our responsibility is to discern, experiment with and use our Spiritual Gifts. What are your specific Spiritual Gifts? Holy Cross is ready to help you discover these!
Below are links to our new Spiritual Gift Inventories. There is one for adults, a separate one for middle school youth and another for theCrossing or high school youth. After you complete the inventory, press the Submit button. Once we receive your inventory we will contact you to schedule a time to review your Spiritual Gifts and discuss where God might be calling you to serve in the life of the church and God’s people both locally and around the world.
The link below will provide you with a matrix that will help you find opportunities to use your gifts in areas of ministry that you are passionate about.
