Women's Ministry-Going Deeper
Tuesdays from 10:00am - 11:30am.
We will be using a DVD/Study Book format for our study called, The Problem of Jesus by Mark Clark.
Jesus upends everything we ever thought about God, ourselves, and what life is all about.
From demons to miracles, heaven and hell, and the purpose of our lives - Jesus speaks to every area of life, even the topics we don't want Him to talk about.
This study will both challenge you and give you confidence in sharing Jesus with others. Study books are available for $20.
Mom's Friendship Group
Find yourself needing to connect with other moms?
Thursday mornings (10:00am - 11:30am) there will be an opportunity to do just that at Ebenezer in the new Chapel.
This will be a casual time of building current friendships and starting new ones.
We will provide a comfortable space, some toys (or bring your own for babies), and coffee (no childcare will be provided at this time).
Any questions or suggestions? Contact email@example.com
Share & Celebrate
We are looking for photos of your major milestones or events that happened in the last year. It can been anything from wedding, births, anniversaries, or even remembering the loss of a loved one.
Please email your photos along with a short description to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jesus can transform your marriage outcome from a worst-case scenario to a best-case scenario. Or even move you from good to great!
