Our Covenant

Below is our Covenant that was affirmed by the Church Council as the covenant by which we all will live together as our congregation moves forward in ministry. Those serving Holy Trinity in any capacity (Church Council, Singers, Ringers, Committee and ministry Team Leaders, Greeters, Ushers, Volunteers, Committee and ministry Team Members, Staff, etc.) are particularly called to be living examples of this covenant.

As congregational leaders, we acknowledge that everyone who is part of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Akron - members, staff, and guests - are beloved children of God and of equal value, regardless of how long they have been connected to our family of faith.

Understanding that we are called to safeguard our relationships within the Body of Christ, we commit ourselves to the following:

  • Pray for one another and for the ministry of the church

  • Stand up against gossip and disunity

  • Never speak ill of each other

  • Work through and resolve conflicts quickly

  • Model transparency and vulnerability

  • Forgive one another when offended

  • Hold no grudges

  • Care for one another when someone is hurting

  • Speak to one another with respect and moderation

  • Give one another the benefit of the doubt

  • Always be honest in meetings and never seek personal agendas

  • Collaborate with others recognizing that we are here to serve a larger whole

We lift up and continue in the covenant we made in baptism:

  • To live among God’s faithful people

  • To hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s supper

  • To proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed

  • To serve all people, following the example of Jesus

  • To strive for justice and peace in all the earth

We will maintain and grow our lives of faith through:

  • Regular worship attendance

  • Personal prayer and devotion

  • Bible reading and study

  • Faith formation groups

  • Service to others through outreach and mission opportunities

We further commit to holding one another accountable to this covenant in the name of Jesus Christ, for the well-being of the congregation known as Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Akron. †
