GIFTED2SERVE: 
Discover your Spiritual Gifts and Unique Personality Traits
In this new year, we would like to offer you the opportunity to explore your gifts for leadership and service. On February 5 & 11, we will offer a two-part class called, Gifted2Serve, led by our own Michele Manasco, PhD, assisted by Katie Turner and Rev. Laura Parker, who will guide you through a journey of 
self-discovery using an assessment tool that uncovers your unique personality traits and the innate spiritual gifts God has given you. 


Through participation in “Gifted2Serve” you will:
   •  Complete an online spiritual gifts and personality assessment where you will discern how God has shaped you to serve in the body of Christ.

   •  Attend 2 fun and energetic classes, each 2-hours, where you will learn about all the different personality types and spiritual gifts and how they work  together to accomplish God’s very best.

   •  Learn about the various ministry teams and opportunities to serve within FUMC.

   •  Meet one-on-one with a member of our Pathways consultation team to identify YOUR best place(s) to serve within our church and community.

This class is great for new members, potential leaders and ANYONE who wants to grow in their journey of discipleship. We hope you will join us! Rev. Laura Parker would love to talk to you if you have questions about this class, laura.parker@fairhopeumc.org

You can also register online HERE or by calling the church office.
