The Community Covenant is a written agreement that guides how people will treat one another. It states clearly how people will behave with each other in the spirit of Christian love even when conflicts inevitably arise. It states what God is calling the group to do and how the group will conduct itself. The Community Covenant outlines the expectations that members of the group can depend on regarding interactions with one another while living out its faith in loving, respectful ways.
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. – Colossians 3:12-17
