We Need Bible Study Teachers!

As we prepare to move into our new and renovated facilities, we will need more teachers and leaders in all age groups. God calls and gifts his people for these leadership responsibilities. Many times, however, we don't know our spiritual gifting. We think we probably can't do this job or help!

Guess what? You probably won't know your "gifting" until you actually serve! And you get better at serving the more training and experience you have.

Imagine a home improvement project at your house. You think you can do it yourself. You have the basic tools, but not the exact tools for the job. But what you have is good enough, so you start the job. You end up using a hand saw instead of an electric circular saw to cut through a thick piece of wood. It works, it just took twice as long and it's not as exact as it would have been with the exact tool.

We want to help train you and give you the tools and experience to see if teaching might be a role God is calling you to do. To that end, we are offering a Sunday morning class called "Preparing to Lead." We will have an orientation on Sunday morning, May 19, from 8:15-9:00 a.m. in room 103. The actual class will begin Sunday, June 2, from 8-9 a.m. for seven weeks (through July 21). We know it's summer so you will be allowed to miss one class for vacation, etc.

If you would like to serve and discover your spiritual gifting, I encourage you to sign up for this Sunday morning Summer class. We will have room for 12 participants. Sign up by contacting Michelle (mlewis@fbclewisville.org) in the Discipleship Office. There will be small reading assignments each week, as well as class participation.
