Every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month, Clarity meets for a time of prayer before heading into the streets of Ephrata sharing the gospel and inviting others to join in a time of worship and preaching at CityGate on Main Street. All are welcome to attend and participate.

Purpose Camp

Purpose Kids Camp is an evening summer camp for kids from pre-school to 5th grade. This out-of-the-box VBS is not a Christian bookstore kit but a completely original experience every single year. 


When registering, kids sign up for the classes that interest them. Throughout the week, they will prepare presentations for their parents during a special combined service showcase on Purpose Sunday. 


Immediately following the presentations in the tent, kids and parents alike join together in the church sanctuary for the epic conclusion of the original Lesson Time skits the kids have been learning from all week. Finally, a picnic and time of games / inflatables finishes out the week on a high note.


This year Purpose Camp will be held from July 7th - 10th with Purpose Sunday on July 12th at 10:00 AM.

Chariots of Fire Carshow

Chariots of Fire is an outreach team focused on reaching the car community. Our mission is to build bridges between members of the car community and the church body.

Numerous awards are presented to the registrants at the end of the show, such as "Best in Show," or "Best in Class." Over 80 originally designed piston trophies are awarded in 20 classes by popular vote. Spectators are welcomed and encouraged to attend and cast their votes for free. 


This year's Chariots of Fire Car Show will be held on May 16th
