Your First Visit


Where Do I Go?

Ebenezer Presbyterian Church is located at 2132 Ebenezer Road in Rock Hill, near the intersection of Hollis Lakes Road. Turn on Bailey Avenue for parking.  You’ll see reserved parking for newcomers along the street next to the sanctuary.  More parking is available behind the gym (Bailey Activity Building) and on the other side of the sanctuary. 

 

Sunday School (9 a.m.) classes are in the Bailey Activity Building.  When you come in, stop by the information table and the person there will be glad to direct you to a class.  Adult classrooms are marked by topics of study.  Children’s classes are marked by age group.

 

For Sunday worship, (10 a.m.) make your way to the front doors of the sanctuary.  You’ll find a visitor table and greeters waiting to assist you.  Please be sure to pick up an information packet. 

 

What About Children?

Children are a vital part of our church.  The  nursery is located in the Bailey Activity Building.  Look for the sign-in desk in the corner of the gym.  You’ll find nursery classrooms for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.  All attendants are church members, have undergone background checks, and are in conformity with the child protection policy of Ebenezer Presbyterian Church.

 

Children of all ages are welcome in the worship service.  During the  hymn immediately before the sermon, children in kindergarten and first grade are invited to gather with an adult at the front of the sanctuary and go to the kindergarden room for a special “Children’s Church.”  Of course, if you prefer to have your child stay with you during the service, that is fine.

 

What Should I Wear?

At Ebenezer, you’re welcome to wear whatever clothes make you comfortable.  Some wear suits and ties or dresses.  Others dress in business casual, and still others might wear blue jeans and polo shirts.

 

What Is the Worship Service Like?

We seek for our worship to reflect a reverence and awe for God's greatness.  A strong emphasis is placed on the preaching of the Word for both understanding and application.  Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the odd number months. 

 

The music in the service is a blend of church traditions, old and new. We sing classic hymns of the church as well as some more recent songs and hymns.  In addition to an organ and excellent choir, we also have a praise team that utilizes a variety of instruments including the piano, keyboard, flute, and guitar. 

 

Will I Be Singled Out?

Absolutely not, but you will be warmly welcomed by folks who are glad you have come.
