Grace is made up of a group of people who are seeking to join together as we meet God wherever God is in the world. We believe that is best accomplished when we are in a committed relationship with our community of faith. We call this relationship being a Covenant Participant. The official structure of Grace is designed around Covenant Participants. The Covenant Participants make the decisions of our community of faith, set our agenda, and are ultimately responsible for Grace. Since participating in our community is expected, we try to make the process of being a Covenant Participant straightforward and simple. Being a Covenant Participant is open to all and is a selfdefined designation. A Covenant Participant is called to join in the life of Grace with their time, money, effort and dreams. While we hope that all Covenant Participants participate fully in our community there is no mandate of participation or behavior. Once a person has made the decision to become a Grace Covenant Participant, they contact the Pastor with their intention to become a Covenant Participant of the Grace community of faith. The Pastor will contact the Welcome Committee who will meet with them. They will then introduce and present the new Covenant Participant to the Church body as having made this commitment.
