Being God's Faithful Community: A Covenant of Spiritual Practices for Central Plains
This Covenant of Spiritual Practices was adopted by the delegates in June 2016.
By covenanting together to six specific Christian practices and to a process of discernment around disagreements, we hope to invigorate our discipleship, fellowship and witness as a conference.
2. Prayer, fasting and generous giving
3. Bible study in congregations and conference gatherings
4. Accept and offer hospitality
5. Bible study with neighbors and strangers
6. Peacemaking, loving-kindness and forgiveness
Tim Detweiler has written a four-session study guide (at left) which you can order from Amazon.com; the cost is just $3.59 per booklet. Here it is in PDF form.
