Agreement

We, the members of the Rose of Sharon House of Faith, agree to the above Covenant and will do our utmost to be regular in attendance, committed to confidentiality and agree to support our fellow members and our mutual decisions.

Different Roles

Household MembersHouse faith members agree upon the different roles they will take as they establish a Christian Household of Faith. The Household of Faith, when established in a community, would include many different kinds of people. Most would be regular members of a local church but some may not be. They may be called upon to take up certain roles in the Household to enable it to function well. We are reminded of Saint Paul's writings in 1 Corinthians 12.-14 "Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit to form one body - whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free - and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so, the body is not made up of one part but of many." A full list of group members should be compiled asking each one for their permission to be included in this list for this purpose only.

Confidentiality is important and care should be taken to get a member's permission and to use their information discreetly.
