St. Paul offered a beautiful analogy in writing to the Corinthians – the church is a living body, with many parts, mutually dependent, each with a role, all working together. That reality can be seen ‘in the flesh’ each time we gather for worship. By God’s grace, though we come in as an assembly of individuals, we become a living body, the Body of Christ. While it is through God’s work that the miracle happens, God utilizes many people with a variety of priceless gifts. Check out our Prayer and Worship ministries – God has given you gifts to share too!
