Setting Godly Goals

In lieu of New Year’s Resolutions, I opt for goal setting. Maybe it’s just semantics, but I am convinced that relying on my own merit- which I will do if I am trying to keep a resolution- will lead to less than desirable results. When I set out to achieve things that I know are…

God is Doing a New Thing

Part of me wants to say how amazing and monumental yesterday was. I want to call it a huge breakthrough for Ekklesia. I want to talk about what an incredble act of God’s power we witnessed. It was indeed all of those things, but I won’t focus on them just yet. In reality, what happened…

A Season of Giving

It’s true what they say about the spirit of giving being heightened at this time of year. In spite of our being a small fellowship, we have been blessed to bless others through the generosity and compassion of a few. To date, we have served more than 400 people a hot lunch through the Master’s…

A Time to Prepare

Preparation is a critical part of nearly everything we do.  Sure, spontaneity is great and adds an element of excitement.  But the absence of intentionally working toward a goal can rob us of the richness of the fuller experience. The season Advent in Christian Church circles is a time preparing.  For four weeks the worshipping…

Why Revival Doesn’t Happen

I have been reading a series of devotionals from A.W. Tozer on the topic of revival.  It reminded me of a question one of my professors in seminary once made regarding the “audacity” of the modern church to schedule a revival:  “How can we expect to set a date on the calendar and expect the…

“The Least of These” Project

We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with the Hunger Coalition, a service of the Columbia County Community Connection, to meet a great, yet little known need in our area.  There are between 15-40 students in each of our elementary and middle schools who experience hunger on a weekly basis.  In fact, according…

Showing Mercy

The Ekklesia Faith Community makes it a priority to be the church, not just have church.  The Master’s Table Soup Kitchen is a great way to be involved in the mission of Christ by serving those in need.  On Wednesday, July 23 we will be cooking and serving a hot and nutritious meal to over…

The Master’s Table Outreach

Ekklesia has really grasped the concept of “being the church.”  As the hands and feet of Christ, we are to look for opportunities to serve in meaningful ways, ways that offer hope to those who are in desperate need of it.  The Master’s Table Soup kitchen is a phenomenal ministry that serves over 300 men,…

The Marks of Maturity

I run into a lot of people who are very active in their church. Some have perfect attendance. Some have a long record of service in various capacities within the organization. Still others can tell you their favorite hymn or praise and worship song. But if I press, and often I do, they have very…

Rules and Rocks

Opinions vary as to how much depending on who you ask, but most major religious surveys agree on the overarching (and somewhat alarming) data that shows church attendance is on the rapid decline. This trend is no respecter of denominations, as the mainline Christian church across the board continues to decrease in numbers.
