A group of Ekklesia volunteers will again be needed at the Helpline Food Bank this Saturday to unload many postal delivery trucks filled with donated food! The trucks will be arriving back at the food bank loaded following their individual routes on Saturday. We need help to unload and to pack the food into boxes between 3 and 5pm on Saturday.

Service Sunday Next Week- May 22nd
On Sunday, May 22nd Ekklesia workers will again be going out after our worship gathering to serve the community in several locations. One group will gather food donations at a grocery store. Another group will again be going to Sandy's home to clean the yard,  trim bushes, and haul off debris. Both areas of service will be appropriate for children or older adults. Let's remember that we are on mission to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community. Remember what Jesus said, "Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Some of the Ekklesia workers trimming bushes in Sandy's back yard a few weeks ago. Everyone should bring gloves, lopers, hand clippers and other yard tools.

Thank you
Our life is filled with so many new blessings. We have new friends in our church family, a new family member marrying our daughter Sarah and new opportunities to serve the Port Orchard community! We are so thankful for our many supporters and your continuous prayers for us.
