Thank you!
As part of the Greater Gifts Worship Series, we will take time to discover and rediscover the spiritual gifts that God has placed within the Body of Christ at WFUMC.  To help us, we are inviting everyone who is part of the WFUMC family to take a Spiritual Gifts Assessment.  You do not have to be a church member to take the assessment.  We hope to see a complete inventory of spiritual gifts that God has placed in our midst.  Yes, God has given you spiritual gifts and it is an exciting thing to discover what they are. 
Take Spiritual Gifts Assessment
Once you have completed the assessment, you will be emailed a link where you can see the results.  You may be surprised by what you discover.  Once you reviewed the results, please share the results by Emailing the link to Pastor Thomas (  We will be compiling the results of every participant and using them as me make important decisions concerning our ministry together.
Thank you for taking part!
While we're celebrating 200 years on mission with God across the street and around the world we're setting course for the years ahead.  May God lead us and employ us as God will.

Discovering Your Spiritual Gifts
If you prefer to take a handwritten assessment, you may pick up a copy in the church narthex.
Please complete and return to the church office by February 8
