Discover Your Spiritual Gifts


Lots of us have talents and skills—you might be musical, or artistic.  Maybe you’re great at repairing thing or understanding science. 


We also have special gifts from God, called Spiritual gifts, that are different from talents or skills.    We’ve subscribed to a special tool to help you unlock your gifts.  Click the button to the left and, once you answer the questions, you’ll see your gifts, along with a description.  Sugar River will also get your results—our goal is to help you serve in ways that excite you and use your unique gifts.

Service Mission

In our Community and Beyond

Serve: The Hands of Discipleship

Service Mission opportunities allow us to serve outside the walls of Sugar River at the local, national and international level.  Local service opportunities are available in Verona and surrounding area.  National mission opportunities are available within the U.S., including disaster relief efforts, and high school and family mission trips.  International Missions are available beyond our national borders with our focus on Mission Guatemala.


Want to see examples of some of what we've been doing in recent years?
