WHAT IS SHAPE?
At First we believe that when you chose to follow Christ, you were given special abilities for you to use to build up His Church. SHAPE is a workshop that helps you discover what ministry is all about and how you can find your fit!
It specifically answers these questions:
- Spiritual Gifts—“What am I gifted to do?
- Heart—“What do I love to do?”
- Abilities—“What natural talents have I been given by God?”
- Personality—“Where does my personality best suit me to serve?”
- Experiences—“What spiritual, painful, education & ministry experiences have I had?”
WHY SHOULD I TAKE SHAPE?
You were uniquely made by God for ministry, for building up his church. (I Corinthians 12:5) He has given each person specific gifts, desires, abilities, personalities and experiences ultimately to use for HIS GLORY. Success is doing what God made you to do! Not only will you benefit from finding your “sweet spot” in serving, but the church will advance further for God’s glory.
WHO CAN TAKE SHAPE?
Everyone is encouraged to go through a SHAPE workshop. If you are currently involved in a ministry at First, we want YOU to take SHAPE. If you are interested in getting involved in a ministry, this is where you need to start.
IF I ALREADY KNOW MY SPIRITUAL GIFT, SHOULD I TAKE SHAPE?
YES! SHAPE looks at more than just your spiritual gifts. As God grows us and we move through different seasons of life, it is always beneficial to evaluate how God can best use us and have the freedom to transition to a different ministry.
WHEN IS THE NEXT SHAPE WORKSHOP?
