Discovering your spiritual gifts can be as powerful as it is empowering, this week, we will explore how God has equipped all of us to use our lives in God’s service!

Begin by sharing their highs and lows of the week.

Have your group quiet down and take a quiz on spiritual gifts.  You can make your own or there are several free resources online. Help them tally up their gifts if you need to do so.

Then as a group make a list of all the spiritual gifts and have them write their names under their top 2 spiritual gifts.

Ask them to answer if they see these to be true to themselves.

  • As a group, which gifts are we lacking in?
  • What are some ways that your highest ranked gifts help the body of Christ?

Read 1 Corinthians 12:12-13.  How do you see this reflected in this group?
