All our talents are gifts from God!
God has made us what we are, and in union with Christ Jesus
he has created us for a life of good deeds,
which he has already prepared for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
He did this to prepare all God’s people for the work of Christian service,
in order to build up the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:12
Within Glen Cary, and in our outreach programs, there are many opportunities to
share our gifts. We pray that you will be willing to share your time and talents to
the glory of God.
