THE CLASSES & COVENANTS
CLASS stands for Christian Life And Service Seminars which comes from the Purpose Driven Church concept of Saddleback Church in Orange County, California. Below is a description of each CLASS. Our CLASSes are tied to four covenants that each person commits to with God. Each of the covenants is assigned a word that begins with the letter, “M.” At OWC, we call these covenants the “4-M’s.”
This is called “Discovering my Membership.” This seminar discusses the importance of knowing Christ, the five purposes, structure, and affiliations of the church. We help people make an informed decision about membership at Openwater.
This is called, “Discovering Spiritual Maturity.” This seminar is designed to teach people the importance of growing in Christ through four spiritual habits that every Christian needs to learn, live, and grow.
This is called, “Discovering my Ministry.” This seminar is intended to help people discover their unique SHAPE for serving Christ. It also focuses on helping the individual develop and use their God given gifts and abilities for His Kingdom.
This is called, “Discovering my Life Mission.” This seminar is designed to help equip and empower people to share Christ to the community.
Through these four CLASS’s people covenant with God in Membership, Maturity, Ministry and Mission as they move from the community to the core. The core of OWC is mandated to reach out to the community to bring more to Christ and help lead others through this disciple making process.
