FAITH MINISTRY
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).
The Great Commission is not a suggestion but a holy command, one that our church takes very seriously. Our FAITH ministry is one way we strive to fulfill this command.
The FAITH ministry is comprised of two components: evangelism training and Christian witnessing. We meet for a meal, study, and work on learning a simple gospel presentation. We then go out in teams of three to make visits to those who have visited our church, absentees, and also ministry visits.
During our most recent six week FAITH semester, we made 30 visits. Those participating were Cliff Blackwell, Aiden Coleman, Brittany Coleman, Ron Guess, Pam Jackson, Jeremiah Martin, Jim Martin, Carol McCann, Derek Mills, Brenda Snyder, and Chuck Westenbarger.
The next semester will begin
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 3
5:45 P.M.
This will be a six week semester. We need team members, and individuals to take a turn preparing a light meal and bake six dozen cookies. You can sign up to help through our VOMO app or by contacting 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.
 
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.
