Echos of Praise Church Reaches Out

Kittitas Echoes of Praise Church (Ellensburg, Wash.) has been reaching out this year, both to the community and to its members, with service projects.

On the first Sabbath of each month, the church serves a hearty pancake breakfast. In August, we put on a S.C.U.B.A. Vacation Bible School at the local community center…rent free! We were expecting about 15 kids, so we were amazed to have nearly quadruple that number.

We’ve been passing around a “friendship basket” among our members, modeled after a tidbit gleaned from the GLEANER. The recipient one week becomes the next giver of a basket full of love with a few treats tucked inside.

Our service evangelism continues. Recently the children filled decorated baskets with pears and popcorn, then delivered them door to door in the community. Community members were often surprised that we were not accepting donations.

In the interest of becoming a more family-friendly church, we are in the process of modifying our Sabbath morning worship into a multi-generational service.

Come visit us any Sabbath morning at the Kittitas Community Church on the corner of Third and Pierce. For more information, please call Ruth Stafford, chuch clerk, at (509) 968-4068.
