“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.” – 1 Corinthians 12:4-6
We are to be stewards of God’s possessions, we can do this more efficiently by having church members serve where their gifts are best utilized. There are many opportunities to participate in teams, task forces, councils or committees to carry out activities at Shepherd of the Hills. Committees perform administrative work more efficiently, help members to mature in ministry effort and leadership, and can help Churches tackle concerns that emerge periodically. Some committees handle on-going concerns, and some are assembled for short term commitments.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” – 1 Peter 4:10
“Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people.” – Ephesians 6:7
