We continue to exercise safe practices in requiring that you wear a mask in the sanctuary. Please allow the Ushers to direct you to appropriate seating, per Pastor Brandon's directive.


• Please come join us for our Good Friday Services on tomorrow: The 7 Last Words of Christ From the Cross. Service will be from 12:00 Noon to 3:00 P.M.


• Prepare to join us on Sunday morning at 10:00 A.M. as we rejoice in celebration of the Resurrection of Christ. 


• Let's get geared up/prayed up and dressed up to celebrate our Pastor on April 23, 2023. Rev. Brandon's 7th Pastoral Anniversary will be celebrated All Day at Greater Ebenezer. Plan to be present to let him know how much you love and appreciate having him as the shepherd of this Branch of Zion. There are no tickets being sold to attend this celebration. 


• The Women's Day Committee of 2023 held a Prayer Breakfast last Saturday. It was as Blessed Day in the Lord. The fellowship was great, the food was delectable and the sermonette by Pastor Kazmir Davis was spiritually uplifting. Sis. Bullock blessed us with a song. If you missed this one, plan to attend their Mothers' Day Luncheon. It will be held on Saturday, May 13th at Greater Ebenezer. We will let you know when the tickets go on sale. Treat yourself, bring your mom, bring a mom-like figure, bring a new mom. We know that you will enjoy yourself. Join Us!


• We are yet in the planning phase to celebrate GEBC's 70th Anniversary. We will provide more information, as the details are confirmed by the Anniversary Committee.


• Please continue in prayer for the City of Philadelphia, its residents, leaders, youth, educators and law enforcement personnel.


• The attachment above provides time and date of a Free Prom Dress Giveaway this Saturday. You may know some young lady in need of this blessing. Pass it on. This information was obtained on Facebook. It has not been verified. Check it out and  always exercise common sense.
