1st Saturday

Faith & Salvation

Rev. Kevin Taylor, Facilitator

Min. Ralph Miller

Faith is reliance, loyalty and complete trust in God. It is by faith that we are able to accept the precious gift of salvation that Christ so graciously has extended to us. In our Christian journey, it is essential that we work continuously to strengthen our faith in God, and thus move forward in our pursuit to live out our salvation with great victory! By persistently praying, worshipping, and praising our King, we position ourselves to develop a strong relationship with God and embrace our salvation at the highest level possible!

2nd Saturday

Discipleship & Christianity

Rev. Kevin Taylor, Facilitator

A Christian disciple is a person who accepts and assists in the spreading of the Good News of Jesus Christ. Christian Discipleship is the process by which disciples grow in the Lord Jesus Christ and are equipped by the Holy Spirit, who resides in our hearts to overcome the pressures and trials of this present life and become more and more Christ-like. This process requires believers to respond to the Holy Spirit’s prompting to examine their thoughts, words and actions and compare them with the Word of God. This requires that we be in the Word daily – studying it, praying over it, and obeying it.
3rd Saturday

Church History

Rev. Sylvester Robinson, Facilitator

Gain a clear understanding of the history, beliefs, and operation of Ebenezer AME Church and the African Methodist Episcopal Church.

4th Saturday

Stewardship

Min. Ralph Miller, Facilitator

Stewardship defines our practical obedience in the administration of everything under our control, everything entrusted to us. It is the consecration of one’s self and possessions to God’s service. Stewardship acknowledges in practice that we do not have the right of control over ourselves or our property – God has that control. It means as stewards of God, we are managers of that which belongs to God, and we are under His constant authority as we administer His affairs. Faithful stewardship means that we fully acknowledge we are not our own but belong to Christ.
