Mercy Ministry

God’s mercy is what moves Him to alleviate the pain and suffering of His loved ones.  Following His lead, the Mercy ministry of Ebenezer church exists to come alongside of our friends in viable and practical ways.  As Jesus commands us to love our neighbor as ourselves (Mark 12:30-31) we understand that we all have times of crisis in our lives in which we need extra assistance.  Our vision is to come alongside our community members in helping to assess needs and offering solutions, and to become a community that responds to those in need with generosity, grace, and truth (Deuteronomy 15:7-11; Acts 2:44-45; 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12; 2 Thessalonians 3:6-10; 1 Peter 1:3-9; 2 Peter 1:3-11).
