Jefferson Ebenezer Project (JEP)
JEP is a partnership between Jefferson Elementary School and Ebenezer United Church of Christ.  Ebenezer UCC used to be located across the street from Jefferson.  Many of the church members attend Jefferson school for their elementary years.  3 years ago, Ebenezer UCC wanted to reach out to a member of the community in providing a service. Since so many members of the church were former Jefferson students, the school was picked.  Ebenezer UCC provides a bag to each of the Jefferson Students with a pencil, a snack, a bookmark, and a book during the month of the students' birthdays. This not recognizes the students' birthdays, but  also gets reading book into the homes.
In addition to the birthday bags, JEP members have come into the school to read to the students, provided handmade gloves and hats for the winter season,  and have provided juice boxes and granola bars during the WKCE week.
