TRINITY UMC – COMMUNITY COVENANT
As members of Trinity United Methodist Church, we commit ourselves individually and as a community to the way of Christ:
to take up the cross;
to seek abundant life for all humanity;
to struggle for peace with justice and freedom;
to risk ourselves in faith, hope, and love,
praying that God’s kingdom may come on earth as it is in heaven.
Therefore, we solemnly and joyfully covenant with one another.
We will protect the unity of our church:
by loving other members as bearers of the image of God,
by upholding human dignity and community,
by building one another up and refusing to gossip, and
by respecting and supporting church leadership.
We will share the responsibility of our church:
by praying for its growth,
by making disciples, and
by upholding our vows to participate faithfully by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness.
We will serve the ministry of our church:
by discovering and applying our gifts to serve the body,
by attending regularly, and
by giving faithfully.
We will support the testimony of our church:
by living Godly lives,
by loving our neighbors, and
by developing Christ-centered homes.
If I should relocate to another area, I commit to seeking out another Christian community in which to continue my pursuit of personal and social holiness. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all.
