Stepping Stone 4: Living Mosaic Essentials Commitment Class
This is the basic introduction of our church family. The seminar is designed to explain the vision, mission,values, and strategy of our church to develop fully devoted apprentices of Jesus for the sake of others. You will receive the church polity, which details our beliefs about sexuality in the Bible, statements of faith, and leadership structure. You will also hear about the history of our church, the six traditions, the spiritual exercise and spiritual gifts that are necessary to fulfill God’s mission for your life as well as the future vision of Living Mosaic. At the end of class, you will have the opportunity to confirm your commitment to God by making a commitment to share your prayers, presence gifts, and service through the ministry of Living Mosaic Montrose Church. Everyone who completes the class receives recognition in a service of confirmation. Each person will have the opportunity to place a piece of stained glass on the Living Mosaic cross. PRAYER OF COMMITMENT Prayer of Commitment: O Lord, you have made me for yourself, and my heart is restless until it finds its rest in you. I long to know you more clearly, Love you more dearly, And follow you more nearly. Jesus Christ I repent of my sin and place my faith in you alone. I receive forgiveness and accept your gift of eternal life. I declare you to be my ever-living Savior, Teacher Lord, and Friend! Take, Lord, and receive all I am, all I have, and all I possess. You gave all to me; to you, Lord, I return all. I am wholly yours; do with me what you will. Give me only your love and your grace, for that is all I ask, and all I desire. Amen.
