Ministries

There are many beautiful talents that God invests in each one of us. Whether we are given the ability to teach, to sing, to serve, to manage money, to make people feel loved, or to minister in some other way, these are gifts meant to be offered back to God in His Church for our own salvation and the salvation of others.
