FCOG MINISTRY CATALOG

EVERY BELIEVER IS GIFTED TO CONTRIBUTE, NOT JUST CONSUME

We are not saved by our good works.  However, when we are saved we are freed to do good works.  In fact, we are able to discover greater purpose and fulfillment through the unique things God created us to contribute for His Kingdom.  

We want you to find a way to connect your gifts to the ministry God is carrying out through FCOG.

This ministry catalog is a tool to help you see a wide range of ministries where your partnership is needed.  Read through these sections and see what causes your heart to stir.  Which areas of service make you want to learn more?  What areas of ministry do you start to see a vision for or have an itch to help make more effective?  Click the Servant Survey button below to express interest in various areas of service, and a Pastor or ministry coordinator will contact you soon!
