CADETS BOYS CLUB
The Cadet club welcomes all boys from grades 4 through 8. They meet on Tuesday evenings from 7-9pm, September to April.
Our volunteer Cadet Counselors are spiritually mature men who are healthy role models. As with all the other programs, they have police background checks and have a heart to see each boy grow up to be strong: emotionally, socially, physically and spiritually. The boys love the large and small group activities, teaching and wood-working projects, as well as their annual Fall campout and winter competitions with Cadet groups from other churches.
Our Cadet program is part of a larger organization called the Calvinist Cadet Corps which you can learn about here: Calvinistcadets.org.
GEMS GIRLS CLUB
Girls Everywhere Meeting the Saviour
GEMS is a weekly program for girls from Grade 4 to 8. It meets on Wednesday nights, 7-9pm, September through to April. Our volunteer GEMS Counselors are spiritually mature women who are healthy mentors and role models. At club meetings, girls have the opportunity to participate in fun and meaningful activities that aim to enrich their lives. Games, crafts, singing, learning important life skills through badge work, discussing the Bible and learning to apply it to life, as well as discovering solutions to many of the challenges facing girls today, are all part of the club experience. Our GEMS program is part of a larger GEMS organization which you can learn about here: Gemsgc.org.
Summer Blast is a program for all kids from grades 4-8 at the church. The program runs every Wednesday in July and August from 1-3pm. Activities include outdoor/indoor games (often including water), Bible lessons and memorization, friendly competitions with prizes (ie. guess the number of candies in a jar) and surprises for everyone. Invite a friend!
YOUTH GROUP / CATECHISM (TEENS)
Catechism - Welcomes all teens in high school! The aim of our group is to cultivate a relevant, dynamic faith in God for each person. Join us on Thursday nights from 7-8pm, from September to April. Here you will learn parts of the Heidelberg Catechism and other creeds and confessions of the Reformed churches.
Youth Group - For all highschool teens, running in conjunction with Catechism, meeting every third Thursday evening during Catechism time. They play games, do service projects in the community, and participate in youth services throughout the area.
Women of all ages! We start every Tuesday morning off with fresh hot coffee and tasty treats at 9:30am before we open as a large group with singing, devotions, and prayer. From there, we break into smaller groups of 8-10 ladies where we gather around God’s Word together and study how His Word applies to us as women of faith. Nursery, for children aged 0-3 years old, is provided by our loving and caring volunteers. Children ages 3-5 years old are invited to join our Story Hour program where they learn Bible stories, sing songs, make crafts, and enjoy tasty treats. We look forward to having you join us!
Evening Coffee Break meets every other Wednesday evening from 7:15 to 9 p.m. from October to April. We are a group of women of all ages seeking to grow in our faith through Bible study and fellowship, and by reaching out to our community with works of service in Christ's name throughout the year.
At Ebenezer church, we want to connect people with God and with one another. Each ministry provides unique opportunities to get involved at every age. With programs running throughout the week, we know you will find a place to belong! For more information on any Ebenezer programs, please call the church office, or contact Pastor Wim de Vries.
