READ SCRIPTURE
Heritage Center: Room 102
We want to help you to read through the Bible without getting lost or giving up. This series has a video for every book
of the Bible that outlines its literary design and main ideas, showing you how it fits into the entire biblical story.
BAD GIRLS OF THE BIBLE
Main Campus: Choir Room
Join two dozen women in a cozy coffeehouse setting, as author and speaker Liz Curtis Higgs explores the lives of ten of the Bible’s best-known femmes fatales. From Eve to Jezebel to Delilah, each woman’s story and struggles come to life,
as Liz brings home this vital truth: “No one is good—except God alone” (Luke 18:19).
GRACE FILLED MARRIAGE
Main Campus: Room 102 (Library)
Couples come to the altar bursting with love for each other. Yet, based on how many marriages are unfulfilling, unhappy, or worse yet, end in divorce, it would seem that the love that gets couples married isn’t enough to keep couples married. Maybe if we had the ability to love unconditionally, like God does, love would be enough…but we don’t. Therefore, love falls short. Love isn’t enough to save struggling marriages.
COMMON MAN: UNCOMMON LIFE
Heritage Center: Room 104
Join us as we feature a group of common men that have chosen to be set apart and live by a code. Their mindset is filled with honor, discipline, integrity, responsibility, and courage. They are the US Navy SEALs. Engage with an extraordinary group of Navy SEALs as they tell us how they’ve chosen to be set apart in a different way—as followers of Jesus. Hosted by former SEAL Jeff Bramstedt, we’ll hear stories of peril, bravery, and adversity as we dig deeply into the Bible to discover timeless principles that will help all men step into the life God has for them.
This series asks the hard questions and shows common men how to lead an uncommon life.

LEGACY OF HOPE CAMPAIGN

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.
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.
 
SUPPORT THE PERSECUTED CHURCH
The-Persecuted-Church_std_t Our youth have embarked on a project to send Bibles to people in countries that restrict the Christian faith. The youth are currently collecting money to purchase Bibles. Donations will be sent to Voice of the Martyrs who will deliver Bibles to countries that have banned the ownership of Bibles.
Commitment cards are available at the Welcome Center. Donations Bibles are $6 each. This is an ongoing project. According to the group Voice of the Martyrs, over 191,000 Christians in restricted countries are asking for Bibles. We can help make owning a Bible a reality.
