DO YOU KNOW YOUR GIFTS?

In preparation for our ongoing election process and the first meeting of the nominating committee, we would appreciate your help into it. How can you help? By filling a form (http://dublinwestsda.ie/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/2019-in-Dublin-West.pdfyou will be given this Sabbath by our deacons about your perspectives regarding Dublin West SDA Church. 

Let us know your dreams about this church, what needs/opportunities you see at the horizon, what would be the best solution or approach to it, and who do you think can be asked to be in charge for it. At the end of the form it is a place for you to check where you would like to serve (if being asked).

And, if you don’t know your spiritual gifts, we have shared here the test or questionnaire for you to easily identify your gifts from God (http://dublinwestsda.ie/2018/01/28/spiritual-gifts-questionnaire/).
