FAITH EVANGELISM

Staying in contact with our visitors as well as our church family is an important part of the ministry here at Ebenezer Baptist Church. Our FAITH Ministry has been at work helping to accomplish this.
Instead of making in-person visits, Our FAITH teams have been making telephone calls to check in on families and individuals. The FAITH Ministry has been meeting for on Monday evenings, sharing a meal together, having a time of evangelism study, and then distributing names of families and individuals to contact during the week.
The next FAITH will be a four week session that will begin
 
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 1
6:00 P.M.
 
The FAITH teams will be doing a study, Jesus in the Secular World by Ben Pierce. This is an 8 part study designed to give participants an in-depth understanding of the secular mindset, inspire personal revival, and equip them with some practical next steps to engage the secular world with the Gospel message in a relevant way. If you want to learn how to share your faith in an increasing secular world, we would love to have you join us. If you would like to participate in the next FAITH session, contact Jim Martin.

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.
