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.
