At Ebenezer, young people are valued as a vital part of our church's ministry. From some of the youngest among us to high school seniors, Ebenezer youth are actively living and growing their faith through ministries such as: wrapping and send Valentine care packages to all our college attendees, as well as participating in the 30 Hour Famine which raises funds to combat world hunger, Sunday school, youth fellowship, Confirmation, Youth Sunday (first Sunday in each month), and youth choir. Additionally, our youth attend church camps at Mt. Morris, WI, help usher, play in the church band, participate in dramas used in worship, help with and participate in Vacation Bible School, and go on Mission trips. Ebenezer is an inter-generational congregation where youth are encouraged to get involved in the life of the church. Visit our youth page on our website to see whats happening and for more details.

Ebenezer Moravian Women is comprised of ALL women who are members and/or friends of the Ebenezer congregation. Women are welcome to be active in their areas of interest. Our chief service project is assisting families of our departed members by doing the funeral luncheon. Over the years we've gathered to make pies, kringles or candies to raise funds for our campers, made up layettes and school bags for mission projects and provided a Christmas lunch gathering for the congregation. If you have an idea for a project, ask around and there most likely would be others interested in doing it with you. A Bible/Mission study group meets monthly, except for July and August, at 9 am on the first Wednesday of the month at the church, unless otherwise announced. This includes a time of fellowship. We use study materials provided by the Provincial Women's Board. If you see a need that should be addressed, please bring it to our attention and we will try to carry it out.
The praise ministry leads our congregation in worshiping Christ through song. They bring a variety Christian music from different Christian music genres. Additionally this ministry blends the beloved and Spirit filled hymns with the spirited and uplifting contemporary music.

Among Friends is a social outreach program of Ebenezer Moravian Church, which is sponsored by the Christian Education Fellowship Committee (CEFC). Events are planned with the purpose of bringing together Ebenezer members and our family and friends, in a more social setting or gathering than a worship service. Participants have a chance to get to know one another in a more personal setting. Some of the events planned include trips, dinners, fall festival, fish fry game night, and Fireside Theater outings. We have gone to museums, sporting events, and movies also. It is an avenue by which our members can become better acquainted and family and friends can be included as well.

Music has a long tradition in the Moravian Church and more specifically the Ebenezer Moravian Church. The Choir meets every Wednesday night at 7pm from September to May and sings most Sundays during that time. Reading music is not a requirement, but having fellowship and fun is! The Ebenezer Church Band plays 3, 4 or 5 times a year for special services like: the Outdoor Worship Service, Easter Sunrise, Mission Festival, etc. All are welcome to join and rehearsals are held only when the band is preparing to play. We also have a Praise Ministry each Sunday and Youth Choir the first Sunday of each month.

This is a ministry in which every member and guest no matter how young or old may participate in. On the first Sunday of each month at the younger children go around the congregation saving their jars and collecting loose change. 100% of the loose change collected goes toward a ministry either locally or nationally. The board of Elders usually produce a schedule in advance so that folks may know here the offering will be donated. Check the elders minutes in our News letter for the schedule.
ADOPT A FAMILY
Contact: Tom Naatz
The Adopt a Family Program is part of a county-wide community outreach program. Families who can not afford to buy Christmas gifts for their children can sign up to be adopted. Churches, businesses, social organizations and individuals can adopt these families and provide them with gifts and food for a Christmas meal. At Ebenezer we have been adopting families for over 20 years. The Ebenezer congregation has been adopting 5 to 6 families each year.
