St. Matthews Area Ministries - Covenant

imageWhereas, we the churches of St. Matthews regard cooperation, mutual respect, and diversity to be prized;

Whereas, we accept as part of our ministry acknowledging and working with neighboring congregations in the mission of bettering the quality of life for all citizens;

Whereas, we gladly embrace our common heritage through regular worship of God, reaching out to the less fortunate, and rendering aid as appropriate;

Whereas, we are committed to loving God with all our heart, soul, mind, and
strength, and our neighbor as ourselves;

Whereas, we cherish the concept of unity alongside the richness of our varying
traditions;

Whereas, we seek to deepen our commitment to one another and to our God...

We, the member congregations of St. Matthews Area Ministries, do hereby covenant together:

  • To pray for one another and for the unifying presence of our Lord
  • To commit to financial support of the ministry of St. Matthews Area Ministries
  • To participate in support of seasonal occasions for joint worship
  • To share as fully as possible our facilities, programs and resources, both human and material
  • To provide quality leaders in achieving a strong, working board
  • To develop opportunities for shared dialogue and mutual problem-solving
  • To work together for justice, peace and wholeness in our community
  • To serve the needs of people in a caring fashion, and in hopes of preserving and nurturing human dignity
  • To seek new and meaningful ways that together, we may more effectively minister

We dedicate ourselves to these objectives and ask the blessing of God on this covenant, that we may be faithful to one another and to God.
