GIFTS stands for Growing In Faith To Serve, and is a lifelong faith formation opportunity that helps participants grow in their faith and share their faith through service and proclamation in their homes, congregations and wider community. A new GIFTS group has started in the Bismarck area under the leadership of Pastor Brian Knutson and Pastor Mark Narum. After an informational gathering, the participants from several congregations named that they were looking for ways to grow deeper in their faith, while at the same time trying to figure out how they live their faith. They decided to meet every 4th Tuesday of the month via Zoom at 6:30 p.m., and that they would like to start by digging deeper into the book of Galatians and Martin Luther’s writing on that book. This group is open to more participants! If you are intrigued, let Pr. Lisa know so she can get you the Zoom information. You can also learn more about the GIFTS program on the WND Synod website:
