    Robert Sigler is leading a men’s study “Raising a Modern Day Knight: A father’s Role in Guiding His Son to Authentic Manhood” by Robert Lewis. This study will help fathers to model and instill a biblical worldview for their sons.
    Jim Martin is leading a video series titled “Read Scripture”. This series gives an overview of each book of the Bible through illustrations. A discussion time will follow each video session.

LEGACY OF HOPE CAMPAIGNebenezerf7-copy
    The mission of Ebenezer Baptist Church is to reach the 97,000 people within the 15 mile radius of our church, as well as our region, nation, and world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
To accomplish this, our church continue to evaluate how to best use our facilities.
    Our church has seen steady growth since moving into the new church in 2008. With that growth, we have come to the place where we need to expand our facilities. After much prayer and planning, we have embarked on the Legacy of Hope stewardship campaign.
The Legacy of Hope stewardship campaign will enable our church to open new doors of ministry. We will be to broaden ministries, enhance worship, discipleship, and outreach.
    The next phase in this process includes a total of 16,300 square foot expansion and renovation. The estimated cost is $1.8 million. This cost is dependent upon Builders for Christ assistance and the degree in which the project is finished and ready for occupancy.
    The Heritage Center will undergo a complete interior renovation and be used as a youth center. Construction of five Sunday school classes on the side of the Main Campus and renovation of the current children’s wing will give our church a total of 13 adult classrooms at the Main Campus. Construction of a safe and secure 9,300 square foot children’s facility will help us continue to help train up the children who attend Ebenezer. An internal Sanctuary and platform expansion will increase capacity to 425. Renovations will also double our gathering space.
    Learn more about the building/renovation project and the capital stewardship campaign at our special web site www.ebenzerlegacy.com.
