Congregation engages community

Group(s): Ebenezer Baptist Church

Our relationship with Ebenezer Baptist Church in the Riverside neighborhood began at the annual faith leader luncheon in 2015. In 2016, we worked with church leaders to create a neighborhood-based festival event that won the inaugural Award of Awesomeness. The program was featured in Indianapolis Neighborhood Resource Center’s 2017 Neighbor Power conference as a model for engaging neighbors and their stories. As a result of the congregation’s “No Plans to Leave” festival event in 2017, Ebenezer Baptist Church planned to create a series of workshops to counter gentrification in the Riverside neighborhood.
