Our Working Covenant

We covenant to be a community of God's people
Drawn together by our common faith in Jesus the Christ
Sustained by God's grace and love
Committed to a personal search for God.

We covenant to be a learning community of faith young and old
That seeks to understand the roots of our heritage,
the guides from other traditions and
the emerging truth from our present experience.

We covenant to be a supporting church family
To nourish each other –
To listen and respond to each other's needs
To share our resources, talents and skills
To celebrate the richness of our church family
and of the gifts of God to us.

We covenant to be open and affirming
Of ourselves as God accepts us –
Of all people as God accepts us all,
Of our ordinariness and uniqueness, in our personal struggle to find God,
Of our sexual orientation,
Of our physical and emotional disabilities.

We covenant to be good stewards of God's creation
Healers and anointers of Christ's body, the earth and of all life
Caretakers of our body, mind and spirit
Tithers of our time, talent and treasure
Proclaimers of God's care and love by witnessing in the community
Actors toward justice and peace for all God's people
Supporters and celebrators of individual efforts no matter how small.
