Bulletin for February 24, 2019
Current Sermon / Series
26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
1 Timothy 2:11-15
A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.15 But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

Ekklesia Kids “Family Connection”
At Ekklesia Kids, we want our families to know what our kids are learning and be able to have conversations at home about the lessons and stories. To access the Family Connection sheet for February, CLICK HERE.
We are working toward a baptism worship service on Easter Sunday (4/21). To those who have already been baptized, we also hope to offer a reaffirmation-of-baptism-vows. If you or a family member is interested either in baptism or a reaffirmation, please contact Curtis.
Faith in the Forest
Last October, Lacey Frownfelter hosted a women’s-ministry-preview event called Faith in the Forest. Join Lacey again on March 2nd (10am) to explore faith and the feminine through the medium of nature. We will gather together for discussion, reflection, and light hiking at the Annie Wilkerson Nature Preserve in N. Raleigh. Please dress for the weather and bring a journal/pencil (time still TBD). Questions? Email Lacey.
