SERVING JOYFULLY. Looking for where you fit? Wondering about your purpose? Questioning if you offer anything of value? God is clear: Your idiosyncrasies, passions and gifts (Yes, you have them!) belong in the church. In this series, Pastor Matt looks to 1 Corinthians 12 for answers.

Listen to what God says about your place in the body of Christ. By the end of the series, Pastor Matt wants you to joyfully serve saying, “I know my place in the body of Christ!” (Stay tuned for a twist in week four!)
