Last night I spent about an hour answering questions and discussing the covenant with the single adults of Berean.
They are a great group of young adults who love Jesus and have a desire to be an active part of the church; many work in several ministries and contribute on regular and faithful way.
Many questions were asked and based on their suggestions I have made two small changes to add clarity and strength to the covenant.
This Sunday I will be meeting with another class and look forward to answering their questions and further preparing the church for the vote.
I came away with two revisions from the singles:
"We promise that we will love and pray for each other and in times of distress help one another."
"and to give cheerfully of our time, talents, and finances for the support of this ministry and its missionaries."
