Welcome to Ekklesia!
College-age people are a very important part of the life of Peninsula Bible Church! Our college ministry, Ekklesia (Greek for "church"), centers on connecting college-age people both with one another and with the broader PBC community. PBC is a diverse and multi-generational church, and we love helping college-age people form meaningful relationships with friends and mentors of all ages (and careers, backgrounds, life experiences, etc.) with whom they can learn and grow. Many students also enjoy serving in the children's, jr. high, or high school ministries and in cooking meals for the recovery ministry.
Ekklesia comprises students who attend nearby colleges and universities, such as Stanford University, Santa Clara University, and De Anza College; college-age people who are working in the area; and students who are connected with PBC and attend college outside the area who come back and join us for summers and breaks. We seek to support each other in faith, grow together in love, and learn as a community what it looks like to have a relationship with God and apply the truths of the Scriptures to our day-to-day lives.
We meet together most Sunday mornings during the school year at 9:30 am upstairs in the D building to enjoy a delicious breakfast, spend time getting to know each other, and reflect on God's word. It's a great, relaxed time for college-age people to connect together before going to PBC's worship service at 10:45am.
During the summer we get together on Thursday nights - check out the Summer College page for more info, and join us anytime!
We're also excited to be starting a new on-campus fellowship at Stanford for the start of the 2015-2016 school year, so if you're a Stanford student, keep on the lookout for more information about that in the fall, or e-mail/text/FB Liz if you can't wait until then and want to talk about it sooner :).
For more information about any of this, shoot Liz (College Ministry Intern) an e-mail anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or find our "ekklesia" (or "summer Ekklesia 2015") FB group and join!
