Celebrating the Resurrection
It's our day of freedom. It's our day we declare that we have a future and purpose for living. It's our day of Independence from death and hopelessness! We love fireworks and all the excitement of July 4th. Well, Easter is actually the Christian's day of Deliverance. It's our day to celebrate that Jesus' new life is also given to us!

On Sunday the Ekklesia children and youth will participate in a presentation that will focus on Jesus' sacrifice and resurrection to new life. This story is important for all of us and especially as our youth grow to understand the power that Jesus gives to our lives. 


   Ekklesia kids practice their presentation that Jesus is Risen!

Easter Potluck and Worship
On Sunday, Ekklesia will gather at 10:00am for a potluck brunch as we meet around tables to experience community and fellowship. Everyone is encouraged to bring a main breakfast dish to share. This will be a time for families and friends to surround a table and enjoy a family meal together. Later, after our meal together we will experience a time of worship led by our youth and children in a drama presentation. This Sunday will be a great opportunity to reach out to neighbors and friends who may desire to know more about Jesus and what a mobile church is like!


Easter Picnic- Saturday, Mar. 26th 
Rotary Park 3-5pm
Across from Parkwood Community Club on Madrona
Our annual Easter Picnic will be held this year at Rotary Park on Madrona Dr. immediately across the street from the Parkwood Community Club where Ekklesia has been meeting on Sundays. 

On Saturday afternoon (March 26th) Ekklesia will hold it's annual Easter Egg Hunt and Picnic at Rotary Park. We will first have a potluck with tables full of great food (Potluck style). This means, everyone is invited to bring a main dish to share with the group. Drinks and paper products will be supplied. Then the youth will be set free to explore two areas where eggs will have been hidden for two different age groups. We will also have two pinatas for the youth to bash that are filled with candy! Don't forget to bring your own lawn chairs or blankets for the ground. 
When: Saturday, March 26th 3-5pm
Where: Rotary Park- 3044 Madrona Dr SE, Port Orchard, Port Orchard
Bring: a main dish, lawn chairs- Easter egg basket for the hunt  


Ready for the big egg hunt at last year's Easter picnic
