Commitment to Community
Covenant Fellowship is a committed relationship between Common Ground and a person who expresses a desire to further the vision and mission of Common Ground.
It is similar to membership but is actually a much deeper commitment.
Unlike becoming a member of an organization simply by making application, paying fees and/or stating intention; such as with political parties, churches, social organizations, etc.; Covenant Fellowship with Common Ground carries with it a deep commitment to regularly contribute time, talent, and gifts toward the purpose of the spiritual center.
There are no required beliefs, however, those entering into Covenant Fellowship must be willing to embrace religious humility and acknowledge ecumenism that lets all spiritual traditions speak for themselves.
Tithing is not a requirement. A Covenant Fellowship partner is assumed to have a giving consciousness. A person's giving consciousness is not monitored.
A person desiring to enter into Covenant Fellowship may complete a Request Form and submit it to Common Ground. Request Forms are available year-round.
Once a year in November individuals newly entering into Covenant Fellowship will be honored in a formal dedication ceremony.
Everyone is welcome and invited to participate in activities at Common Ground.
The decision to enter into Covenant Fellowship is a very deep commitment. While everyone is invited to consider Covenant Fellowship, everyone is equally encouraged to prayerfully consider whether or not such a commitment serves their highest personal interest. Only those who are ready to do so are encouraged to make the choice to enter into this covenant.
