Running with the Ramondettas!
Well the Ramondetta household is hopping since the arrival of our twins Ella and Kate! That’s not abnormal. As you know we have 2 other older daughters who have been keeping us hopping for over 10 years:) Our precious twins (now about 7 months old) are doing great! We thank God and our church family and friends for their love and prayers and meals that were provided as well. Our older girls, Michaela and Sophia, are such a sweet help with the twins as well. We are truly blessed.
As our personal family has grown so has our church family! It is amazing how God has increased our church in so many ways! We have added 25 families to our church family so far this year. The spirit is great and we are growing together as a church! But the year isn’t over yet. God still is working and has great things in store for us as we follow Jesus together!
What’s been happening at EBC?
The teens had a great trip to the Night of Joy on September 10th! Because of the hard work and your involvement in the teen yard sale fund raiser the teens were able to go to the Night of Joy event in Orlando! Thank you!
Our VBS Summer Event was Awesome! We went to Camp Kilimanjaro from July 19th – 23rd and God blessed in a great way! We ministered to over 70 kids and had over 50 workers and leaders come together and serve! Our church family grew together in a big way. And we raised over $840 for missionaries Jim and Adie White to Togo Africa! Our church matched what the kids gave so the offering was $1680! Praise the Lord!
The ladies of EBC had a fun Pinterest Activity! On September 24th our ladies came together for some great food, fellowship, a devotion, and some pinning fun! They shared their favorite pin and had crafts too! We are blessed with a great group of ladies at EBC!
We had an outstanding Discover EBC orientation Class on October 4th! We had our third class this year and welcomed seven more new families to EBC! (25 new families for the year) We are so thankful for how God is growing our church. Let’s be sure to keep welcoming our new families and help them get acquainted and find their place here at EBC! Learn more about this new member orientation class online at ebclife.org.
What’s happening next?
Stewardship Sundays in October! Our Stewardship Sundays will be during the entire month of October: the 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th. Our theme is “All the Way!” Each Sunday in October we will be inspired to be good and faithful stewards of God right here at EBC! And that means we are going ALL…THE…WAY! Jesus went all the way for us so we are to go all the way in our love, commitment and devotion for Him and for our church!

God has been working in and through our church in a great way this year so far! As we follow Jesus in a truly devoted way and participate in the activities of the church He will continue to bless and we will grow together upward inward and outward! Don’t miss out on what God is doing here at EBC this fall!
Let’s go all the way for Jesus!
