Week Three: I believe in God, but ... don't feel loved by the church.

Most everybody believes in God. Some may call it a “Higher Power.” And, we all have our questions, or doubts about God. What are your questions? How would you finish the phrase, “I believe in God but…”?
Scripture for the Week: Luke 15:11-32 Luke 16:19-31 Luke 17:11-19
Psalm for the Day: Psalm 34:1-8


Almighty and everlasting God, increase in us the gifts of faith, hope, and charity; and, that we may obtain what you promise, make us love what you command; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


10/31 Lord's Acre Sale

Show your support of Ebenezer Church through this annual event. There will be a wonderful Turkey Dinner, and then a live auction. Bring your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers...everybody! If you'd like to help and/or donate items for the sale contact Mary Boyles.

12/13 Church Christmas Party
Mark your Calendars for December 13! We will meet at 3pm to go caroling, then have a chili and soup meal at 5p. Following supper, we will have a white elephant gift exchange. No need to buy a gift, just bring something silly that's wrapped. Kids can expect a special visit from Santa.


New Vine Campus Ministry
New Vine meets weekly at 7pm on the MWSU Campus, Murphy building, room 109. We are always looking for volunteers. Contact Tom Keller if interested.

Food for Kids Thanksgiving Food Drive
Help families here in St. Joseph enjoy a Thanksgiving Dinner by donating turkeys, hams, cornish hens, or funds to purchase these (~$15-$20 per turkey). Last year, Food for Kids distributed over 400 turkeys to families in need, and Clair Church helped out with over $500 worth of donations. Thank you for your generosity. Deadline is Nov. 1st. Contact Pastor Ben for more info.
