Blessing the Homeless- Tiny Cottages Built
Ekklesia Church has been called to serve the homeless in our community. Last Saturday was a great day where multiple churches, Kitsap County officials, Kitsap County Commissioner, Port Orchard Mayor, City Councilmen, and many other local residents came together to work on a project close to our heart. The opportunity to help the homeless strikes deeply in many of our hearts. It was so encouraging to hear the supportive statements, curious questions and genuine support by so many who stopped by our construction site. We were actually able to accomplish much of the work in just one day. Thank you to everyone who worked, brought water, food, or just stood and watched and cheered the workers on. Later in the afternoon an elderly couple approached our lead Ekklesia builder, Rick Bell, and offered a check for $1750.00 which will build another tiny cottage. Then on Thursday of this week I (Tim Blair) received a phone call that the Grace Bible Church was wanting to partner with us and build two more tiny cottages. The number of sponsored cottages stands at eleven as of today! It seems every few days we receive more commitments to partner with us and support this effort to serve the homeless. May God continue to bless our efforts and open doors of opportunity to lead in serving our community.
Let's remember... the mission of Ekklesia is this:
"To be the hands and feet of Jesus, sharing his message of life, hope and transformation."
