Cultivating Caring Community: Relational Covenant
As we conclude our week of reflecting on our value of cultivating caring community, let’s spend some time reflecting on our relational covenant.
Action: Read through the relational covenant, highlighting or underlining words or phrases that stick out to you. Click on and read the verses associated with each point.
A COVENANT FOR OUR LIFE TOGETHER
Holy Manners for a Faith Community:
How will we walk hand in hand when we don’t see eye to eye?
As the people of LifeSpring Covenant Church we commit to the following ways of working together:
Believe the best of each other and give each other the benefit of the doubt. (Phil 4:8-10)
Seek to discover what is best for our church as a whole, not what may be best for us or for some small group in the church. (Phil. 2:3-6)
Accept disagreement, conflict and evaluation as normal and natural. (Phil. 4:2-3)
Forgiveness is a mark of Christ among us; as forgiven people, we will reject bitterness and instead choose to forgive one another. (Eph 4:32)
As we at LifeSpring Covenant Church commit to this covenant,
we will seek to be a body unified in prayer and submission to the Holy Spirit.
Question: What does our Relational Covenant say about the culture we are hoping to promote at LifeSpring?
Prayer: Choose one bullet point from the covenant that you personally struggle with and bring it before the Lord, asking him to help you grow in that area.
