Week Two: I believe in God, but ... why did Jesus have to die? And will my sins keep me out of heaven? 

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: Hebrews 1:1-4, Hebrews 9:15-28, Matthew 25:31-46, James 2:10-13
Psalm for the Day: Psalm 22:1-15


Lord, we pray that your grace may always precede and follow us, that we may continually be given to good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.


10/24 Mystery Dinner Youth Group Fundraiser
This fun evening will be a dinner to remember. Come support our youth ministry!


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.


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.

Festival of Sharing
We are gathering supplies for 10 Layette kits for Festival of Sharing this year. Items needed are on slips of paper at front of sanctuary on the far right side. Please choose some items to purchase and have at the church no later than October 11. Our youth group will deliver them to Sedalia October 16-17.


Week 3: I believe in God, but how can I trust the Bible?

Week 4: I believe in God, but don’t feel loved by the church.
