GOSPEL PROJECT SUNDAY SCHOOL STUDY
Join us each Sunday for an exciting new study taking place during our Life Group Sunday school. Each class is studying The Gospel Project. This is a three year chronological examination of the Scriptures beginning and Genesis and continuing through Revelation .
The Gospel Project tells “the story that changes everything, that salvation is not found in man, but with Jesus. The Bible is not just 66 books bound together, it’s one big story. When we see the Bible as one narrative, it changes how we read it. We see that Adam’s fruit led to Noah’s rain, and Joseph’s pit. We see that Abraham’s ram and Jonah’s fish and David’s giant foretold us of Mary’s manger and the One who would reunite man with God. When we see that every story points to Jesus Christ, it changes how we teach our kids, how we see ourselves, and how we see God.
 
The Gospel Project details:
  • Chronological study plan – Genesis through Revelation
  • Christ-centered study – All Scripture gives testimony to Jesus
  • Age alignment – All ages learn same lessons
    Missional focus to respond to God
  • 99 Essential doctrines of Christian faith identified
  • 18 months in the Old Testament & 18 months in the New Testament
  • A Sunday school wide monthly Bible memory verse related to the study
 
We have Life Group Sunday school classes for preschoolers, grade school, youth, post high school, a parents class, men’s and women’s classes. We also have a new nursery Sunday school class.
If you are looking for a class, stop by the Welcome Center and pick up a Sunday school brochure. It has a map of all of our Sunday school locations. You can also contact Jim Martin.

AMERICAN RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE

Did you know that the simple process of donating blood can save up to three lives? With a nationwide shortage of blood, your donation is greatly needed.
If you have never donated blood, the process is very simple. When you arrive, you will sign in, show an ID, and be asked to read some required information. Next, your blood pressure, hemoglobin, and pulse will be checked to help determine if you are healthy enough to give blood. Then you’ll be seated comfortably while a pint of blood is drawn. The actual donation only takes 8 to 10 minutes. Finally, after donating, you can enjoy a snack and a drink for 10 to 15 minutes before resuming your normal activities.
Our next blood drive will be
 
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 24
8:00 A.M. TO 1:00 P.M.
 
The blood drive will be held at the Heritage Center in order to practice safe distancing. All persons age 16 and up are encouraged to donate. Those under 18 do need a signed parent permission.
At our last blood drive on August 22, 20 units were collected. We are greatly appreciative of everyone who was able to donate.
If you are able to donate, please visit www.redcrossblood.org. to register. You can also contact Lisa Heavener at 740-605-2744.
 

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.
