Every child of God possesses a particular gift that has the potential to increase the joy and hope in the world. The ministry and mission at East Lake does not happen through the efforts of a single person, but instead through many people serving on many teams. Every worship service, every youth group, every dinner is a result of many spirit-filled individuals combining their gifts and working together in order to further develop God’s kingdom. We invite everyone to use the gifts they have been given in a way that increases the vibrancy of the church and spreads God’s light.

“If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.” – ROMANS 12:6-8
