Ebenezer United Church of Christ Identity Statement

We are Ebenezer United Church of Christ.

Our name, from I Samuel 7:12, means: “Thus far, God has helped us.”

Building on that solid rock, we reach forward in faith on the growing edge of our community. We offer to all people meaningful worship and education, and an open invitation to share in Holy Communion.

Ebenezer demonstrates a welcoming openness that helps people feel “at home”, fortifying us to live out our faith on a daily basis. Following Christ’s example, we reach out to bring hope and justice to all of God’s family. We affirm the gifts and cherish the image of God in each person. We welcome into the full life and ministry of the church all persons of every race, culture, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, economic status, and family structure.

In partnership with God and each other, in traditional yet progressive ways, we are ordinary people working hard to accomplish extraordinary things.

A Study of the Doctrine of Discovery:  Five Sunday Evenings – Jan. 27 – March 3, 6 to 7:30 pm.  The Doctrine of Discovery, which was first enacted by Pope Nicolas V in 1452, authorized the killing and appropriation of lands of indigenous people as explorers “discovered” new lands.  In 1823, the U.S. adopted Indian Policy for this country based on that doctrine.  Not only have these laws never been discarded, the Doctrine of Discovery continues to have a negative impact on Native American lives.  You are invited to learn more about the far-reaching effects of this policy.  Study materials will be provided.  Sign up in the Gathering Area or call the church at 920-452-9766, so we can provide enough study materials for all.  (We will not meet on Super Bowl Sunday.)

Communion –  Sunday, February 3 at 9:00  and 10:30 am worship services.   All who seek to follow Christ are welcome to partake of Communion.  Ebenezer’s Communion bread is entirely gluten-free  – a moist and tasty bread we all can enjoy.
