Prayer Direction

Thank God for the gifts He has given you and pray for strength to use them every day for His glory. Pray for Shoreline to be a strong and healthy Church where every person uses their gifts for the glory of Jesus.


“Live It!” Challenge

Take the Assessment – If you have never taken the Shoreline Spiritual Gifts Assessment, go online and take it or jump into the next class. Then, dare to meet with a church leader to talk and pray about your gift(s) and learn to use them for the glory of Jesus.

  3. If you are not sure about what spiritual gift (or gifts) you have from God, what is a gift that you think you might have and why do you think this?

  4. Read: 1 Corinthians 12:1-7 and Romans 12:4-7
