REVIVAL Season at Ebenezer

Ebenezer is divinely blessed to realize that the best way to get through the remainder of 2019 is not by way of survival, but with a REVIVAL. Therefore, the time of REVIVAL is almost here. Ebenezer welcomes back Reverend Paul Little of Bibb Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Macon, Ga to preach at this years’ Youth REVIVAL and Pastor Christopher Wimberly, Sr. of Hunter Hill First Missionary Baptist Church will preach at our Annual Church REVIVAL. Youth REVIVAL will take place June 4-6 at 7pm and Church REVIVAL will take place July 8-12 at 7pm.
REVIVAL is a purposeful season of religious renewal and spiritual restoration, after a period of apathy and indifference by too many leaders and members, we can look forward to revival to become delighted and excited again about doing what Christians and the church have been commissioned to do for the cause of Jesus Christ.
REVIVAL is valuable and vital: In a world where God is disrespected; where the Bible is ignored; where spirituality is deserted; where the church is abandoned; where Christianity is misrepresented; where morality is on the decline; and where the world and America are becoming more dangerous and deadly, we definitely need a reviving REVIVAL. We urgently need a REVIVAL that will restore our commitment to God, our relationship with one another, and our dedication to the Great Commission that Jesus gave to the church.
A reviving REVIVAL is absolutely essential to inspire and bless us with the following: To acquire the mind of Christ; to learn the ways of Christ; to do the will of Christ; to reach the lost for Christ; and to teach the saved for Christ. When that is faithfully done, then Ebenezer can be earthly and heavenly known as the REVIVED CHURCH where the lost are found; where souls are saved; where the needy are helped; where the hungry are fed; where the neglected and rejected are encouraged; where the
criticized and the struggling are accepted; where lives are improved;
where burdens are lifted, and where the hopeless finds hope.
-Rev. Dr. Winfred M. Hope, Pastor

EBCW Prayer Warriors Ministry - Father, today we acknowledge that every battle in our life and the life of our church is not ours to fight, but belongs to you. For we know that the real struggle is not against what we see with our eyes, but with that which is unseen, the powers of the dark world, the devil who waits for the right time to steal, kill and destroy your work. Today as you have told us in Your Word, we choose to put on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6: 10-18).

Family At Church Time (F.A.C.T.), Thursday and Saturday Bible Study is up and running and we need you to join us! Studies take place every Wednesday @6pm, Thursday @12Noon, and Saturday @ 8:30am. For more information, please contact the church office.
