Recalculation Meeting Jan. 29th after 2nd Worship Service

What is Your Strength?
Join us on Jan. 23rd at 6:30 p.m. and find out.
Have you ever wondered what your strength is? You may think you know but sometimes things that are strengths go unnoticed or underused. Would you like to learn from your strengths? If so join me for a Zoom meeting to talk about the Strengthsfinder assessment and the book Living Your Strengths: Discover Your God-Given Talents and Inspire Your Community on Jan. 23rd at 6:30 p.m.
I will have copies of the book for sale in my office for $20.00 you will need an unused copy of the book because it has a code for the assessment. We learned from the Ad. Council taking the assessment that the Kindle version of the book does not provide a digital code for the assessment.
Before the meeting please take the assessment (code for assessment in the book) and read the first three chapters of the book.

What can I give Him, Poor as I am? — If I were a Shepherd I would bring a lamb; If I were a Wise Man I would do my part, — Yet what I can I give Him, — Give my heart.
