Ebenezer LB Church Celebrates Centennial

Members and friends of Ebenezer LBC gathering to celebrate God’s faithfulness.
On August 6-7, 2022, people gathered from all over the United States… messages and letters poured in from all around the world… all to a little church in a little prairie town called Rolette, in order to greet Ebenezer Lutheran Brethren Church in celebration of its 100th Anniversary!

We had a wonderful time of fellowship and shared memories, as loved ones reunited, and pastors who had served the church in past years returned for the celebration.

Ebenezer Lutheran Brethren Church was planted by Ox Creek and North Ox Creek Lutheran Churches in 1922 following evangelistic tent meetings in the town of Rolette, North Dakota, located mere minutes from the geographical center of North America. And ever since, Ebenezer LBC has faithfully gathered and preached God’s Word, administering the sacraments and gifts of Jesus Christ to his Church. Over this last century, Ebenezer has raised up pastors who served throughout the CLB, has helped raise up missionaries who have gone throughout the world, and was integral in planting Grace Lutheran Brethren Church in Bottineau, ND nearly 70 years ago.

Today, Ebenezer continues to follow in the footsteps of its founders as God continues to call us to spread the gospel to the Rolette area. In 2021 and 2022 Ebenezer put on a week of summer tent meetings in conjunction with our Vacation Bible School to invite children and their families, neighbors, travelers, and other Christians to hear the gospel, to come for prayer, and even to receive Jesus Christ as their Savior for the first time.

We are grateful for the encouragement we’ve received from so many throughout the CLB who share a connection to Ebenezer in Rolette. May God grant Ebenezer many faithful years to come! And may he be glorified in her as she continuously seeks to be found in him!

Rob Røise serves as pastor of Ebenezer Lutheran Brethren Church in Rolette, North Dakota.
