Ekklesia Christmas Gatherings
Dec. 11th- Angels Proclaimed Him
Dec. 18th- Jesus is Born!
This Sunday Darren Hanson will teach the Ekklesia adults the amazing story of how angels proclaimed the arrival of Jesus to the Earth! Everything about Jesus' arrival to earth was a miracle and changed the lives of all who heard of it! This week we will focus on the special messages delivered by the angels to Mary, Joseph and the shepherds.
Next Sunday, on December 18th Ekklesia will have a birthday party for Jesus and celebrate in a real way his wonderful gift to the earth. It will be a day of eating together and celebrating together his birth so long ago.

Ekklesia Workers Serving in Many Places
During the Christmas season many of our Ekklesia people are serving in many different ways. Some are helping others gather gifts for the needy, some are "Bell Ringers" for the Salvation Army, some are helping a single mom recently separated with needed grocery items, and many of us will be helping at the food bank with their massive food and presents distribution that occurs just days before Christmas. Wherever you may go there will be many ways to serve the Lord and the needy residents of our community. May God receive our gifts of love as we serve our brothers and sisters in need.
