Homecoming/$10,000 Sunday

We invite our former members/attendees to our annual Homecoming Service on October 13th at 10:30 a.m. We will worship our Lord with extra songs during our worship, and then enjoy a pot-luck lunch afterwards. If you can, please bring a favorite food or dessert to share. We will provide beverages.

We are asking our members and friends to reach deep into their pockets and give an extra offering this Sunday as we try to raise $10,000 above our regular offering. We thank you for your support and faithful giving.

(Please note: Sunday school classes will not meet this Sunday.)

Jerry Kohnle Memorial Barbecue - Report 2019

Our current figures show that we raised over $9500 from the Barbecue fundraiser. Expenses will have to be deducted, but that is a great total and we thank everyone who bought the barbecue and helped supply labor and desserts for this event.

Our annual benefit barbecue fundraiser will be held on Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28 from 4-7:00 p.m. in memory of longtime Ebenezer UMC member, Jerry Kohnle. (Please make note of the time change for Saturday.)

Adult plates are $9, children's plates are $4 to age 12 (4 years old and under eat for free). Plates include: pork barbecue and sauce, slaw, baked beans, roll, dessert and a beverage. You have your choice of homemade desserts provided by our members and affiliates. Take-out or eat-in.

Proceeds will be used to help local residents with medical bills. We thank you for your support.

Finding Hope Ministries' Update

We have received an update from Nathan Merrill's Finding Hope Ministies in Romania. They are doing a great deal of good through their children's homes. Please read their June 2019 newsletter and pray about how you can support their ministries.

Website Updating In Process

We are making changes to our website. Some of the older pages still have the previous formatting, but will be updated as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience.

Biscuits Sales

On Thursday, October 17th, 6:00 a.m. 'til gone!, Ebenezer's famous ham biscuits will be served up again, along with livermush, sausage, bologna, egg, and jelly ones, and gravy and biscuits. You can also stop by and eat-in. Please order early on Thursday or pre-order on Wednesday for deliveries. We deliver orders of 10 or more in the surrounding area, which includes Lenoir, Granite Falls, Hudson, and Hickory. Businesses and individuals are encouraged to get them while they're hot.

Prices vary from $1.50-2.50. Call: Ebenezer's church office at 396-2214 (Mon.-Fri. 8:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.). Ebenezer's Rainbow Sunday School Class is now in charge of this fundraiser. Proceeds will go to the ART (Area Response Team) Fund, and the money will be used to help people in need in the area.

"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.
