Welcome to Ebenezer!

Ebenezer is a church committed to loving everyone, always, and extending the hope and grace of Jesus to our neighbors near and far. We invite you to attend service on Sunday mornings or our mid-week Bible Study and get connected. Find the perfect place to volunteer, engage your family in our thriving kids and students programs, and grow in your faith. If you’re facing a difficult season, Ebenezer is also a safe place to get practical help. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here!

Wherever you are in life, you matter and you have a purpose. We want to help you become the person God has created you to be. Your journey has a next step and we'll help you find it. It could start with serving, finding God's vision for your life, giving, or joining us regularly.

Strong families start with solid foundations. That's why we partner with parents to help raise the next generation to become followers of Christ. Your children and teens have opportunities throughout the week to grow relationships with each other and with God.
