Current Sermon / Series
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.
61 Still another said, “I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family.”
62 Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”

We Have an Instagram Account!
We have a lot to be excited about at Ekklesia and we are finding creative ways to share it with you and our broader community! You can now follow @ekklesia.rdu on Instagram. From time to time, photos and videos will be shared from our Ekklesia kids and youth programs. If you prefer your child’s picture not to be used on our social media accounts, please email Lindsay so that we can honor this request.

Block Party 2019 Photo Album – THANK YOU!!!
The storyline of the early Christian church is one of incredible sacrifice and eye-popping generosity. It grew not because it was a storehouse of wealth, but because it poured itself out on behalf of the world. This is precisely why we host block parties and give away school supplies! Take a minute to browse through this year’s photo album, and celebrate what you made possible through your generosity!
