Community Day, Saturday, August 7th

Plans are in the works for a Community Day at Ebenezer on Saturday, August 7th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with music, hot dogs, and games/activities galore. We invite everyone in our local community to come join us for the fun and free food.

Activities planned include: dunking booth, inflatable water slide (bring your own towels), face painting, reptile zoo, and hopefully, a fire truck--and dare we hope?--Smoky the Bear may make a visit! Please note that young children should be accompanied by a responsible adult. Let the fun and games begin!

Baseball Game Outing

On Sunday, August 1st, we will be going as a group to the Hickory Crawdads home game against Greenville at 3:00 p.m. A sign-up sheet is on the table in the lobby area. Meet here at 2:00 p.m. to carpool to the game with us. Don't forget to bring your Sunday bulletin to receive a discounted $6 ticket to the game, and garner a $4 donation to our church, too.

Ongoing Collections - Updated

We are collecting some items for our local teachers by helping fill up the Teacher's Closet. This ministry provides items for teachers and their students that they cannot obtain through the regular budget.

They include the following: Clorox wipes, hand sanitizer, hand soap, paper towels, facial tissues, sharpies, dry board markers highlighters, black/blue/red ink pens. colored pencils, glue sticks, composition books and notebook paper (wide and college ruled), crayons, scissors (children's type), index cards, construction paper, pencil sharpeners, sheet protectors, file folders, large and small legal pads, white out, paper clips, staples, pencil pouches, markers, rulers, ring binders, card stock white/assorted, 3 ring note books, large and small pencil top erasers, and post it notes.

(NOTE: they have plenty of regular pencils at this time.)

We are collecting non-perishable food and clean used clothing in good condition that will be taken to South Caldwell Christian Ministries. You may leave the items at the church on Sundays or during normal office hours (8:30 to 1:00 p.m., Monday-Friday).

We thank you for helping us to minister to the needs of our community.

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5: 16)

Our vision is to let our light shine into the dark world so that the world may come to know The Light, which is Jesus Christ our Lord.
