It is important that this sacrament take place as soon as can be planned following the birth. Preference is for the sacrament of Baptism to be celebrated during the service of worship on Sunday morning; however, other arrangements can be made. Please call the church office for a copy of the Baptism pamphlet with guidelines and procedures. More information available on our Baptism page.

Pastoral counseling is an important part of our ministry at Ebenezer Lutheran Church. You will find the counsel of the pastor helpful in dealing with personal issues, family problems, vocational quandaries, or any spiritual or emotional crisis. Often our pastor can assist with a referral to other counselors based on your specific need.

A note, telephone call or personal request will bring the pastor to your door at your time of need. Please inform the church office if you know of a member who is hospitalized or recently homebound.

At the time of a death, the family should notify the pastor IMMEDIATELY. Many times the pastor is called when death is expected to offer pastoral care for the whole family. Members are encouraged to use the sanctuary for funerals. It is in this familiar place that the promise of our resurrection faith is proclaimed every time we gather.

We encourage all children to be in church with their parents. If needed or desired, childcare/nursery is available for children, two years of age and younger, during Sunday worship services.

If you are interested in a particular project or committee, if you would like to become part of the various church groups, if you have some time to give but need ideas about what needs to be done, or desire to participate in the life of the congregations at any special point, please contact the church office.
