Ekklesia Community Church was planted in 2012. Matthew Bond is the pastor.  He served here FBC Athens as the student pastor.  Matthew and Heather have lived and worked among the people of Sidney for the past several years, and we have the opportunity to help them continue to plant gospel seeds in their community.

What will we do in Sidney?

Our primary goal in going to Sidney is to help the Bonds with their ministry to children and families. The Bonds have a unique ministry through their children’s programs in the community. We will attempt to run 2 games – one being a sports and games camp, while the other is an interactive learning camp.




The Schedule:

  • Saturday – fly to Victoria – arrive and get settled.
  • Sunday – Worship @ Ekklesia – prep for the week of camp
  • Monday – Friday: 8am – 3pm(ish) Ekklesia camps
  • Sunday – Fly home to Tennessee

Each evening there will be an opportunity to enjoy some of the local stuff around Sidney. We usually take a trip down to Victoria at one point during the week as well to be good tourists.
The majority of our ministry will occur at the camps, while some times we may be out
around town ministering to other residents of Sidney.
This is a trip you can bring your whole family on. We would encourage parents, children,
moms, dads, and entire families to attend this trip if they are able.
