About Us

It is with great excitement that we introduce to you Ek Kardia - which in Greek means “from the heart.” The purpose of this biblically-based organization is to serve our community and to develop the character of our young women.  As mothers and daughters, together we will share in the joy of serving others and seeking continued growth in our relationships with each other, our community and our Lord.

Our daughters, in their pre-teen and teenage years, are in an amazing season of their lives. We believe their lives can be enhanced as they discover the significance and purpose that comes from actively making a difference in the world. Inspired by Joshua 22:5, where we are commanded to not only love God, but to serve Him with all our heart and soul, we want to begin what we hope will be a life-long practice of giving and serving “from the heart.” 

Active membership begins in 7th grade and ends with high school graduation. Although founded on biblical principles we are in no way exclusive. Our membership reflects a variety of beliefs and backgrounds. Along with the many service project opportunities, our year consists of special events, activities, and social gatherings.  Thank you for taking the time to learn about Ek Kardia!
