A Word from Pastor Alan
The starting point for our faith as the Methodist expression of the Christian faith is "holiness." We are called "to be holy as God is holy." That holiness is expressed in how we live out our lives as individuals and together as the Church.
John Wesley's starting point for being a part of the Methodist movement was "a desire to flee from the wrath to come, and to be saved from their sins." Those who had that desire would follow three simple "General Rules."
- The first is "do no harm."
The second is "do all the good you can."
The third is "to attend upon all the ordinances of God." (The ordinances are the things we do on a regular basis to grow more holy.)
We follow these rules so that we may "reform the nation, and in particular the Church, to spread scriptural holiness over the land."
The language is "old timey." Yet, it is good language and a powerful reminder of where we started and where we are called to go.
Biscuits Sales - Date to be announced
On Thursday, SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY 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.
