land which is now at the corner of Onville Road and Ebenezer Church Road. The Church was given the name “Ebenezer” in reference to the Bible passage of 1 Samuel where the army of God’s People were victorious in battle. The name “Ebenezer” means “God is our Rock of Help.”

During the Civil War, Union soldiers burned the floors, broke the windows, defaced the walls, and used the building as a stable.
