• Pastor Brandon wants to remind you to bring a youth to church on Sunday, August 27th. We will enter into a special prayer for our youth, who will embark on a new school year journey. We want to pray for their safety, academic achievement and salvation.


• Sunday, August 27th will be a "Casual Dress Day". You may come in more relaxed garments on this day. Remember, you are still coming into the House of the Lord. Join us in the Fellowship Area, following the Worship Service,  for an "Indoor Picnic". The GEBC Men will be serving a picnic style meal. The pricing will vary based on your meal selection.


• HOMECOMING - The third Sunday in September (9-17-2023), is fast approaching. Sister Clareissa Williams, Leadership Council President requests your support of this annual fellowship event. We are accepting monetary donations, or your favorite dishes for Homecoming. Donations can be given to Sister Ann Davis. Make plans to be present after the official vacation season has ended.


• Some individuals have not received some of the robocalls from One Call Now. One thing that you can do is to add Greater Ebenezer to your contact list. There is a possibility that this call could be blocked, based on how your phone preferences are set. Sometimes, things are changed when software is updated. You should be updating the software on your phone routinely. This is how the service carrier provides you with important security features.


• COVID-19 - Please continue to pay attention to updated information about the increase in cases across the region. Since July, positive cases have been on the rise. It is a good idea to resume wearing your mask when in large public gathering. Frequent hand washing is always encouraged. Another booster shot is expected to be released in September. You will be able to get this, just like you get the annual flu shot. You will be able to get it at your local pharmacy or supermarket.


• This is a reminder to those who call the church and leave a message. Slow down. Take your time and leave a clear message that includes your name, message and the telephone number.
