We Worship

 In ancient times, a memorial of stone, an Ebenezer, was raised to mark a safe place--a sanctuary--provided by God. May this place be Ebenezer.

We Belong

We believe in loving God and each other, as we celebrate the mystery and grace of God through the giving of our time, talents, presence, and service to others. YOU are welcome here, too.

We Serve

We are a small, rural, mountain community comprised of people of from all walks of life. There is something for everyone here!
