The Gift Exchange

Here at First and Calvary, we seek to use our God-given gifts to glorify the Lord. One way we aim to do that is by utilizing what we call "The Gift Exchange."  You can see some examples of gifts we are seeking and you can also complete the Offering Gifts Form to share gifts you would like to use for the church and God's Kingdom. For more on this topic, check out our Pastor, Don Evert's book, Discover  Your Gifts at our library or where books are sold.


Here are examples of gifts that people have offered...

Courtney P.  - Organizing and helping with women's events and bible studies. Baking and cooking.

Kelle R. - Writing, video editing, graphic design.

Chip S. - Working with children.

Judith G. - Writing, painting, baking, and producing talent shows.

Art F. - Cooking, office work, storytelling.

Tracey B. - Singing and anything creative.

Don E. - Would like to donate his juggling skills and Spanish translation.
