This web section is intended to help you "plug in" to receive or provide ministry. In many ways, plugging in is how God works most actively in our lives. Ministry is for men and women, young and "not so young". Ministry also covers the range from caring to social, from education to service and music, and includes opportunities for Hispanic and Latino involvement.
At FUMC we use a couple ways to "examine" our ministry progress, personally and churchwide:
(1) the Six Marks of Discipleship and
(2) the "Baseball Diamond" of our Spiritual Journey.
Below are depictions of both. Take your pick or consider them both. But be sure to check out the links to the gifts survey and the MyNextStep opporutnities at the bottom of this page.
SIX MARKS OF DISCIPLESHIP
"BASEBALL DIAMOND" of our SPIRITUAL JOURNEY
Or it might be helpful for you to evaluate your situation in light of the baseball diamond representation of the spiritual journey. For example, which base are you on and where do you want to be?
TWO WAYS TO THINK ABOUT YOUR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - Your Invitation to Grow Now!
Now is always a good time for personal growth and expanding our group ministry at Columbus FUMC. Please look through this ministries section and pray about what God intends for you.
For example, do you want to know more about your spiritual gifts? The United Methodist Church has a 3-minute Youtube video and 21-question on-line personal assessment for you to take at your convenience available at
Or, here is the same video available on this website: Spiritual Gifts Introduction Video
And here is the UMC link that gives a brief description of each spiritual gift (especially useful to you after taking the assessment).
