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 firstname.lastname@example.org

Here To Serve! Ebenezer Service Men - available to help and assist with needs such as: * Basic construction/renovation * Emergency repairs * Yardwork & maintenance * Other needs...???
Ebenezer Service Men exists to bring men together to serve the greater church family with their skills and abilities. This is not an official ministry/program of Ebenezer and waivers will need to be completed before work can begin. The service men team (arm's length from Ebenezer staff) will process and assess requests and will prioritize/decide based on available skills/trades, manpower, liability factors and the need and situation of those asking (financial, physical, etc.) Not every need can be met but the team(s) will endeavor to do their best to serve others.
