Bulletin for October 29, 2017

Current Sermon / Series

Luke 5:17-26

17 One day Jesus was teaching, and Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there. They had come from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was with Jesus to heal the sick.
18 Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. 19 When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus.
20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”
21 The Pharisees and the teachers of the law began thinking to themselves, “Who is this fellow who speaks blasphemy? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
22 Jesus knew what they were thinking and asked, “Why are you thinking these things in your hearts? 23 Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? 24 But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.”
25 Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God. 26 Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, “We have seen remarkable things today.”

2017 Board Nominations

This fall, we will be electing 2 new people to serve on our board. The board is currently comprised of 5 people. For gender equity, of the 5 on the board at least 2 must be women and 2 must be men (i.e. we'll never exceed a 3-2 ratio in one direction or the other). Currently, we have one man and one woman stepping off of the board, leaving us with Andy Babcock, Shannon McDougal, and Colby Freeman. And so, of the 2 new people that will be elected, at least 1 must be female (but both could be).

If Ekklesia is your church home, please use the form below to enter the names of up to 2 people you believe to be spiritually mature men and women who care deeply about the life and health of Ekklesia. The people who receive the most nominations (who allow their names to stand) will be added to the ballot along with several individuals already recommended by our current board.
