Church gates to be open on Easter Sunday, still observe social distancing

The Ebenezer Church and Cemetery (originally Methodist Episcopal, presently United Methodist) will have their gates and doors wide open from sunrise to sunset on Easter Sunday, April 12. Founded in 1816 as a congregation, this building was built before the Civil War. The cemetery was established in 1843 when a log church was built.

There will be no services or gathering, but they are celebrating the completion and restoration of the six large windows and transom as well as the recent painting of the church exterior.

Later in the year there will be a service of dedication to honor all those who donated to this ongoing project of preservation.

No one will be at the church to greet you. Sanitizer will be available in the church and soap and water in the nearby outhouse. Please sign the register (plastic gloves will be available) if you find time to visit this historic venue where the Resurrection of Jesus Christ has been celebrated in Jennings County for over 200 years.

Also in the nearby church cemetery, there are victims from the 1918 pandemic.

Individual communion packets will also be available.

Please observe social distancing.
