Giving at Church
We encourage all of those who are part of our Church family to give not out of obligation but out of worship. Your gifts allow God's work to be done in the community.
Securely Give On-line
Your information is held securely by an SSL encrypted connection. This information will remain private and will never be given away to third parties, other than to process your scheduled contributions.
Ways to Give
There are many easy ways for you to give including one time gifts, giving on Sundays (offering box in the back) and by setting up online reoccurring giving.
Your gift helps us live out our vision to serve the world.
Why We Give
"In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35
Gospel Centered Worship, Community & Mission
At Ekklesia HD we are called to Gospel Centered Worship, Community and Mission, and we seek to be good stewards of God's resources to achieve these ends.
Our Vision for 2017
Our goals for 2017 include strengthening our partnership with churches in Albania & Ukraine, reaching the community around us for Jesus and continuing to grow both in number and maturity. If you would like to see the specifics of our budget for 2017 please email us at and we will be glad to answer your questions.
- Q: How does the church decide what to do with what is given?
A: At Ekklesia, we are Elder Led and Member Governed, so every year the Elders approve a budget and the members have a chance to review the budget and either confirm it or request clarification or changes. Once this budget is approved, it is the church's operating budget for that year.
- Q: Is my gift tax deductible?
A: Yes, Ekklesia HD is a non-profit organization and your donation amount listed above is a tax write-off for the tax year in which it was received. Ekklesia HD is under the 501c3 umbrella of EFCA, group ruling #1729.
2016 was an exciting year for our church.
This year we partnered with Radstock Network (www.radstock.org) and were able to join a movement of international churches planting international churches worldwide. We have partnered with church planters in both Albania and Ukraine, one of whom is coming out to spend a week with us at the end of January.
In addition, we were moved from “church plant” status to “EFCA Church” and are now considered a planted church within the Evangelical Free-Church Denomination. With this, we are praying that God will raise up and/or send us more church planters so that we can continue to plant churches both locally and globally.
My greatest prayers for Ekklesia HD this year are that:
- God will continue to grow us in worship, fellowship & mission.
- God will raise up or bring in 2 new church planters that we can train and send out sometime between 2018 and 2019.
- God will help our elders in training to finish strong and to raise up 2 more elders who can begin training in 2017.
- God will help us reach our community in more tangible and relational ways (Vacation Bible School, Community Outreach, Camps, etc).
- God will help us shepherd and train up the plethora (yes I said plethora) of children that we are blessed to have as a part of our church family.
Thank you again for your financial and prayerful support of God’s work at Ekklesia HD. I look forward to seeing what God will do in 2017 and am always available to answer any questions you might have about Ekklesia HD.
