What is a Mobile Church?
How Ekklesia is a Mobile Church
Ekklesia is known for what we are doing in the community rather than where we meet on Sunday morning. We are found at shelter houses for the homeless, we are found in parks during the summer. We are often found at the local South Kitsap food bank packing food boxes, unloading trucks, moving dirt, building storage buildings, pouring concrete. We are in parks for back to school fairs and halloween festivals. We meet in parking lots for trunk or treat events, car shows and car washes. We also meet on Sundays in a community club building and sometimes in a restaurant as needed. During the week we meet together in homes for a time of eating together, sharing life and bible study. So, as the need arrises we go where the residents in our community gather. We attend events where people may be found. We are mobile in order to go where we need to be in our community as events arise.
Mobility is the calling Jesus gives to all believers to go and share the story of love to all people. We have been "sent. " The Church is called the "ekklesia" which means the "called out." All these terms describe a group of people that are mobile and not tied down to things that keep us from connecting with others.
So...this Sunday, Ekklesia will gather at the "That One Place" restaurant. We will gather at 10am for a time of coffee and then begin worship in songs at 10:25am. At 11:30am some of our group will then go to the Powless home to work on several projects.
