    Love INC has once again asked that we provide a meal for the new series of classes that they are beginning on August 25.  If you are willing to provide food, serve the meal or eat with the attendees during the meal, please sign up on the sheet in the entryway.  This is an outreach that has been very much appreciated by the attendees and is a blessing to those that participate in any capacity.  Thank you for your willingness to help!


    There is a sign-up sheet in the entryway if you are willing to bring snacks for 15 people for the Community Coffee held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month.  This sign-up is for September – December.  Your generosity and help with this outreach is much appreciated by Women’s Ministry as well as the attendees of this community social event.  Thank you!!


    Women Alone Together will meet Tuesday, August 30, 2022 from 1:30-3:30 in the church basement. Bring your vacation memories and memorabilia for lively conversation! Cookies and cold drink will be served. Contact Gloria at 641-660-5309 or Kathy at 641-780-2160.


    Sheepgate Ministries, formerly Teen Challenge of the Midlands, is holding their 25th annual golf marathon fund raiser on Monday, September 12.  Kyle Adams will once again be participating.  If you would like to sponsor him, please sign up in the entryway and give the money to him prior to September 12, if possible.  He has a personal goal of raising $2000, so any help towards that is much appreciated by him and by the many people helped by Sheepgate Ministries.


    Women’s Ministry Council encourages you to choose to attend “The Power of the Word” retreat Thursday, September 22, hosted by the Bible League Volunteers.  Ebenezer’s Women’s Ministry will not be having a retreat this year.  Remember last year how we were blessed while attending a women’s retreat August 28 at the Lake View Camp with guest speaker Alicia Bruxvoort encouraging us to pursue Jesus?               This year women plus husbands, yes, men and women are invited on Thursday September 22, 9:30 – 3:30 to Calvary Church, Pella.  We will be captivated as we hear Mike & Lynn Wilder former Mormons now Bible believing Christians share of how they found their way into the loving arms of Jesus’ grace.  It will be a special privilege to hear about God’s power, love, mercy, and grace saving Mike, Lynn and their family.              Tickets are available for $40.00 for a single registration and $70.00 for a married couple registration.  Registration deadline is September 12.  Sign up soon at bibleleague.org/tickets or phone Judy Vander Wall at 708-367-8546 (8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.).  This includes attendance and a delicious noon meal.  There are registration forms on the table in the entryway also.


    There is a book on the table in the entryway written by Lynn Wilder.  It is about her and her

    family’s journey in Mormonism.  Please feel free to take it and read it and pass it on to someone else.


    Don’t ignore the signs you asked God to show you.
