                                             CHURCH LIBRARY
 
We will be crocheting and working on new prayer shawls. If you can crochet or want to learn, we invite you to attend our meetings.
The Prayer Shawl ministry serves those individuals facing serious illness, who have a spiritual need, or need an extra “hug”. Prayer shawls are available at no cost and are located in the church library. Baby blankets are also available for newborns in our church. When taking a prayer shawl, there is a card attached to the gift bag. The gift bag has a number on it. Write the number on a piece of paper and put it in Larry and Linda Brown’s mailbox.
Contact Linda Brown for more details about how you can be involved with this ministry.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

This year’s Vacation Bible School will be Monday, June 24 through Friday, June 28. Our theme this year is “Giddy Up Junction”. We will “saddle up” each evening from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and learn about the awesomeness of our God.
Each night, we will visit different “outposts” including Bible lessons, crafts, games, snacks, missionaries, and Safety Town with the Perry County Sheriff’s Department.
All children in preschool through grade six are invited to attend. Transportation is available for children who live in Logan or the surrounding area of the church. You can pre-register by visiting our website at www.ebc1837.com.
There are still areas where teenagers and adults can volunteer to help out during Vacation Bible School week. You can be a crew leader, help in the nursery, drive the church van, or be a van assistant.

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.
