Spiritual workshop set

The Rev. Nina Stasser said spiritual gifts are gifts from the Holy Spirit that Christians receive at baptism.

“Anyone is welcome to the workshop who is wondering about God’s plans for them, for their lives and what they are called to offer to their faith community,” Stasser said.

She said a spiritual gifts inventory is a series of statements concerning a person’s life and spiritual experiences.

There are no books for the workshop, but printed materials will be handed out.
