Ebenezer Gardens & Mural
And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.     Genesis 2:15

The Ebenezer Gardens & Mural, situated between the old church (Erastus Lucas Fellowship Hall) and the new church, represents a place of meditation and beauty.  The Gardens feature a beautiful and relaxing architecturally landscaped environment.  On a day-to-day basis, the gardens serve as a peaceful location for quiet reflection and spiritual meditation. 

The Mural, the most recent addition to the garden site, adds a totally new dimension.  The left side of the building (shown above), entitled, "The Finished Work of Christ," depicts the nail-scarred hands of Jesus and a dove representing the Holy Spirit.  The right side (shown below) features a work of art entitled, "Ebenezer--The Stone of Help" and recaptures the origin of Ebenezer as stated in I Samuel 7:12.  The mural is a powerful witnessing tool and demonstration of Christ's love for us.

"Divine Peace Thru Adversity" is a special memorial tribute to the victims of the 911 disaster.  Our nation was changed forever "that day."   "Now the SON Shines" sufficiently describes the hope of those whose lives were forever changed because of the tragic events of that September morning.  Our prayers continuously embrace the families and friends who suffered personal losses.
Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.(KJV) ~ Proverbs 6:3
