Meeting Report (Ebenezer Fellowship Meeting 2014)


The Ebenezer Churches of Middle Georgia were privileged this past weekend to have our Fellowship Meeting once again.  This year, Oak Grove PBC hosted the meeting, and it was a rich and wonderful time in the Lord.  He smiled down upon us again and again, and many of the saints said that weeping seemed insufficient.  The Lord blessed ministry from many different states to come visit with us, and many commented that the singing this year seemed better than usual.  Each portion of the service was filled with Holy Ghost power.

This year we were particularly favored to have the meeting weekend extended by the willingness of some brethren to “stay a while” with us.  Elder Ronald Lawrence came in early for the meeting and filled an appointment at Pleasant Plains PBC on Wednesday night, and Elder Steve Jackson, Elder Tom Griffin, and Lic. Jeb Owen stayed on after the meeting.  This allowed for appointments for the brethren with Elder Steve Jackson preaching at Trail Branch PBC on Saturday night and back at Oak Grove PBC on Sunday Morning.  Elder Tom Griffin preached at Pleasant Plains PBC on Sunday morning, and Lic. Jeb Owen preached at Trail Branch PBC Sunday morning and Cool Springs PBC Sunday night.  The brethren’s willingness in this regard made it seem like the meeting was extended though it officially was from Thursday night through Saturday morning.

We rejoice brethren that our risen Lord is still manifesting His power through the efforts of men in His house.  Each service was a powerful testimony that God is alive and furthermore that He is not through with His people.  With revived hearts, refreshed spirits, and an energized walk, the brethren in the area have been strengthened and emboldened in the Lord once again.  Pray for us brethren that our mutual Lord would continue to bless this area and that our lights would burn brightly and fervently for His name’s sake.  I apologize for the quality of the pictures as technology did not cooperate with me this year.  Many of the pictures taken did not even come out.  The sermons will be posted to our website at:
