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.

The Longest Night Service – creating a sacred space of acceptance: Thursday, December 19 at 7 pm.    We seek to be sensitive and attentive to the needs of people who are blue at Christmas by sharing a Longest Night Service of worship.  This service, which is offered close to the winter solstice—the longest night of the year—creates a sacred space for people living through dark times – dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer or some other disease. The light of candles shines in the darkness, helping us to be reflective, honest, and accepting of where we really are in this season. That light shines…offering healing and hope.
