Serve

God wants us to be involved with His work. God is so gracious that by the Holy Spirit God freely distributes spiritual gifts to all who are saved.  He not only wants us to know our spiritual gifts but expects us to grow in them each day.  For information about your spiritual gifts take a Spiritual Gifts Survey.

Serving is foundational to the Christian life and we encourage our congregation to Serve the Church, Serve the Community, and Serve the World.  Pocatello FUMC has a diverse array of programs and ministries that fit any schedule or passion.
