Here are just a few of the way that the people of Ebenezer reach out to serve the community, one another, and grow in our identity as children of God:
Small Groups at Ebenezer meet on a variety of schedules and are a place of deeper spiritual connection for those in our community. Not a traditional support group, nor a Bible study, the small group is a place to explore common spiritual themes that connect our live to one another.
Ebenezer Refugee Support
Ebenezer’s Refugee Support group works with newly settled refugee in the Rogers Park and Edgewater area in cooperation with their sponsoring agencies and St. Thomas of Canterbury School staff . The site will follow families process and list specific needs of families. When you find you can fill a need, contact one of the administrators and donated items can be picked up. Cash donations can be made out to Ebenezer Lutheran Church with the notation of Refugee Fund on the memo line, or online using the button at the bottom of the page. Visit the group’s Facebook page here. See a list of needed items for donation here.
Ebenezer’s tutoring program serves upwards of 50 children and their families each year, offering weekly tutoring, mentoring, a meal, and summer enrichment activities. All our tutors are volunteers who care deeply about the health and education of children in our community.
Committees, Groups, and Task Forces
The ministry of this community is carried out by ever person, ministers all called to sacred work. From facilities to education, welcoming to finance, the gifts of individuals become gifts to the community.
