Library Corner: Church for Real
The writer of Hebrews encourages us “not to neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another” (Hebrews 10:24-25). When we consider how we can help, assist, and encourage someone else by coming faithfully to church instead of focusing on our own preferences, needs, and schedules, we begin to make our gifts and abilities available and God begins to become real not only in our lives, but also in the lives of others.
The SCFBC Library has some great resources to help you tap into your gifts and experiences and discover how you play a part in creating a church pulsing with the power of God. Take your SHAPE Assessment to discover your unique design and leverage a few of these recommendations to get started!
