Ebenezer UCC


Christian Education

Ebenezer’s Sunday School kids meet on Sunday mornings September – May from 8:00 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. We have classes for 3- year-old’s through 6th grade. You do not need to be a member of Ebenezer to join Sunday school. The children participate in “Kid’s Worship Sunday” the 2nd Sunday of the month. During this time, the children are responsible for ushering duties (greeting, handing out bulletins and collecting offering), as well as taking part in the usual Children’s Time which means surprises from Pastor Mike’s bag, and a lively discussion of how things we play with every day remind us of God. The Sunday School kids also perform their yearly Christmas Pageant.


The Confirmation students are under the instruction of Pastor Mike. Confirmation focuses on church history and faith and beliefs. Students meet weekly on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. September (2021 start date TBD) – the first Wednesday in May. Confirmation Sunday is the first Sunday in May.

Jim Pagel Scholarship

The Jim Pagel Memorial Scholarship was set up by his family to honor the memory of Jim by giving encouragement to a graduating high school senior of Ebenezer to seek and obtain a degree or certification at an institute of higher learning the year following graduation. The individual must show character that exemplifies the values of family, effort and hard work and must be someone who can clearly benefit from this award.

Jim Pagel was an admired member of Ebenezer who was hard working and set goals for himself. He loved auto racing and was killed in an accident at the age of 43 while pursuing his dream of racing.
