Centennial

 

On September 13, 2009, Ebenezer Presbyterian Church, George Iowa, will celebrate 100 years of growth and heritage. Plans have been underway to celebrate this historic event since October 2007, and you are needed to be part of the planning and carrying out of celebration activities.

The Centennial Steering Committee was established earlier this year and has been active since October 2007. Appointed to the Committee are; Kenneth and Elaine Hinsch, Bob and Marlene Kannegieter, Wanda Koger and Lois Nagel.

A Century with Christ has been selected as our centennial theme. Our centennial scripture base is from 1 Samuel 7:12 He named it Ebenezer, Saying Thus Far has the Lord Helped us. The centennial hymn is The Family of God.

It will take many people to make our centennial celebration successful. Events that have been woven into our heritage need to be depicted and remembered in a variety of ways. Those who have been a part of the heritage for a considerable time have special memories and talents to offer. Those who have been associated with our church family or membership for a shorter period of time, also bring a special perspective to our reason to rejoice in a history that is rich with events and people.

There are many people with many talents in this church family available to make 100 years of Ebenezer Presbyterian Church, George Iowa an event that we can celebrate and rejoice in with great satisfaction.

Together, we can make the centennial an event that will lay the groundwork for our second century of Christian fellowship and growth.
