Birthday 2020

Ethos Church is turning 12!

If you are new to our church family, the month of November is the time each year we stop to celebrate our church's birthday. This year we, as a church family, are celebrating our 12th birthday! We use this time each year to remind ourselves of all that God has done among us and what He has called us to be a part of in this city and beyond.

We'll begin our celebration on Sunday, November 8th, on our Sunday Livestream. We invite you to join us as we share how we'll be celebrating in a unique way this year.

When & Where: Sunday, November 8th at 10am, online at

We'll GIVE generously towards our Global Partner, we'll PRAY boldly to encourage our Global Partner, and we invite you to JOIN us as we worship together in person on Wednesday, November 11th. You can find details for all 3 ways to celebrate below...

Global Partner

Meet Klodian, Alketa, Livia, and Mateo Lumçi from Shkoder, Albania. Klodian is the pastor of Illyricum Church. Klodian found our Sunday Livestream on Youtube in late March — and he, his family, and their church team have continued to join us each Sunday!

Albania is considered unreached — with less than 2% of the population identifying as Christian (most recent stats are 0.6% Christian). It is 70% Muslim. Klodian and his family have a dream to plant 10 churches in 10 years. They have already planted 3 churches — two in Shkoder and one in a small village outside the city.

Each year to celebrate our birthday, we take up an offering for the good of the world and the glory of God. This year, we want to give this offering to the work happening in Albania through Klodian, his family, and their team. Click here to read more about their specific needs. As you give, make sure to select Birthday 2020 as your designation. *Everything that is raised above and beyond the needs in Albania will go towards other global church partnerships.

In addition to giving financially, we want to cover Klodian, his family, and their team in prayer. We hope to accomplish this by gathering 365 prayer videos — one prayer a day for a whole year! We're inviting you, our Ethos Church family, to record a 1–2 minute video on your phone and upload it to our folder. You can record a video of you on your own, of your family praying, or of a group of people praying (i.e. House Church, At Home Gathering, friend group). You can pray for specific needs, pray scripture over them, or pray however the Spirit leads you!
