Throughout the years the ladies of our church, the Women’s Guild has been involved in numerous activities including bake sales, ice cream socials, salad luncheons, pie baking, church cleaning, making quilts, putting together and delivering Christmas boxes to our shut-ins, playing bingo with the residents at local nursing homes, and serving funeral luncheons. The Women’s Guild has always taken the needs of the parsonage under their wing and considered them the responsibility of the women of the church also. Every woman in the congregation is automatically a member of the Guild and the men are always welcome to join in. The ladies meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month @ 1:00 p.m. at 7 Angels to enjoy a nice lunch and fellowship.

The Wired Word Bible study is offered Tuesday mornings from 10:00 a.m. until about 11:30 a.m. We take on an issue in the news and look at it from a theological point of view. Bible passages are provided for your reflection and study. There is no prerequisite Bible knowledge for this class. We have lots of fun and our discussions always end up going to individual experiences and opinions based upon the Bible and lived faith. Everyone is welcome to drop in and have fun.
Thursday evenings bring an entirely different Bible study. We use the ‘My Confirmation’ book as a guide for the discussions, but we almost always venture into basic questions about the Bible and its use in services and daily life. This class, that meets from 6:30—8:00 p.m., is ideal for people who would like to brush up on their Bible knowledge. Yes, the Bible can be engaging and interesting.
Ebenezer Church organized two dartball teams in 1975 which became part of a dartball league which had been in existence for many, many years. Teams play against each other every Tuesday night from October until early Spring. The year culminates with an annual tournament and banquet. Both Ebenezer teams still exist today, nearly 40 years since conception and it’s nice to see couples and families playing alongside each other.
A group of Ebenezer men meet one morning every month for breakfast at 7 Angels to enjoy a meal and talk over the happenings of the world. While this group meets mostly for the fellowship, they also take on the responsibility of setting up and decorating the church’s Christmas tree and taking it back down again after the holidays. Anyone is welcome to join them on the second Thursday of each month @ 8:30 a.m.
