Current Sermon / Series
1 Masters, provide your slaves with what is right and fair, because you know that you also have a Master in heaven.
2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3 And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. 4 Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. 5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
7 Tychicus will tell you all the news about me. He is a dear brother, a faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord. 8 I am sending him to you for the express purpose that you may know about our circumstances and that he may encourage your hearts. 9 He is coming with Onesimus, our faithful and dear brother, who is one of you. They will tell you everything that is happening here.

Camp Athens – coming this summer!
Many of our members have been feverishly working behind the scenes to plan and prepare for our most ambitious outreach, Camp Athens. It is a one-week day camp located at Athens Drive High School and utilizing the nearby recreation facilities. A primary goal for this camp is to effectively build deeper relationships between Ekklesia and the Athens community.
Camp is for children 8-13 (as well as a mini-camp program for younger children of volunteers). Learn more at our camp website, www.CampAthens.org and register online as a camper or volunteer.
Family Hockey Night
Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 21 at 7pm as the Carolina Hurricanes play host to the Ottawa Senators. Cost is $25 which includes the tickets and food for tailgating. Bring your own drinks, and be sure to carpool with a friend to save parking costs. Contact Bob at [email protected] or 336-307-5933 for more information.
