Spiritual Gifts Survey
The Cottonwood Family has many members, each created with a purpose and gifts to fulfill that purpose. The survey is free and will help you discover who God created you to be. Click the button below to learn about your spiritual gifts!
Once you have completed the survey, please contact our Next Step Minister Scott Erwin on how you can best put them into practice and serve at Cottonwood Creek!
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.
