The Words of Christ are placed into action as many of the Ebenezer family participate in missions or the reaching out to others.
Our Helping Hands Account Provides Financial Assistance to people in need within our own church family and surrounding community. We work closely with St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Pius Catholic Church, Rockdale Community Food Bank, Rockdale Emergency Relief and the Rockdale Community Clothes Closet to assist their clients in whatever way we are called upon and able. We participate in area mission projects such as Trinity Soup Kitchen.
Local Outreach is right next door at Edwards Middle School. We are committed to providing school supplies for the over 500 'free' or 'reduced' lunch students. And we are committed to helping support the teachers to reduce out of pocket expenses for basic items, such as kleenex, paper towels and hand sanitizer. We also collect food for the Rockdale Food Bank on an on-going basis.
National and International Outreach
Youth and Adults have gone to Guatemala, Mexico, the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina and in the summer of 2010, to Romania to work with abandoned orphans. Those not travelling to these areas participate through prayer, financial support and items to take to the mission field.
From the Youngest to the Oldest member of Ebenezer, everyone is given the opportunity and encouraged to become the hands and feet of Christ to a world in need.
