Movie Night


This Wednesday night we will be watching the documentary "What Would Jesus Buy".  It overlaps in an entertaining way with much of what we have been talking about over the last couple weeks.  We will be watching it at the Dixon house at 6:30.

Habitat for Humanity September 2009

AC Street

We are excited to be a part of building up to 7 houses in one weekend at Celeste Place in Hattiesburg.  This is a neighborhood that is made up entirely of Habitat Homes.  We at Ekklesia are joining with a group of churches in order to adopt two of the houses being built.

 Below you will find the volunteer schedule based on who filled out the online form (which is below the schedule)

Haiti Water Project

There are 8 million people in Haiti, & it is estimated that up to 60% of them do not have access to clean drinking water.  The estimated cost to dig a well is $2,000 -$5,000 U.S. The cost to build cisterns in areas where wells aren’t feasible is around $1,000. And since the Haiti Water Project is ultimately more about people than projects, here’s another way to do the math: It costs about $1 to provide clean water for one person for one year in Haiti

You can contribute to the Haiti Water Project through Ekklesia (just write Haiti Water Project in the memo line of a check), & Ekklesia will provide you with a “gift card” that you can give to your loved one. (there are a couple of examples of the cards below) 

You might also want to purchase a $5 ornament or $15 nativity set made by Haitian artists providing them with a fare wage & you or your loved one with an ornament to remember the poor of Haiti with each year.  If you want an ornament or nativity set (and havent signed up for one yet) you can email me or just sign up Sunday Night.  You can make checks for the ornaments out to Ekklesia and just put "Haiti ornament" in the memo line.

Link to the Superman Story

Here is a link to the story I referred to in last nights talk about Mark Weisenbeek and his Superman outfits.  You can click here to listen to the interview/story.  Just click the "Full Episode" button.  The entire episode has various stories, but the portion I referred to can be found at about minute 30.  (BTW I don't entirely remember what else is in the episode and therefore am not endorsing any of it.... )
