Edavaka Mission

The spiritual renewal in the Church, which was the offspring of reformation has created a yearning in believers to present the Gospel to others. It was realized that this could not be fully achieved by the services of a few full time evangelists. On the other hand every member of the Church should be a missionary filled with such joy and assurance of salvation as to be Christ’s witness to those who come into contact with him, irrespective of one’s profession in secular life.Believers interested in evangelistic and intercessory activities used to assemble periodically for prayer and fellowship. It was in the annual meeting of such a gathering in 1924, the present Mar Thoma Voluntary Evangelists’ Association was formed. Bishop Abraham Mar Thoma was the ardent supporter of this movement.The objective of this association is that every member of the Church should be a witness to Jesus Christ, whatever his or her occupation may be. Those who volunteer to be members of the Association meet together in each parish at least once a week for fellowship, intercessory prayer, Bible study and sharing experiences.The branch of the Mar Thoma Voluntary Evangelists Association in the Parish is called "Edavaka Mission".

Sevika Sangham

The women in the Mar Thoma church also shared the spiritual power generated by the Reformation. The Mar Thoma Suvisesha Sevika Sangham the women’s wing, was inaugurated during the Maramon Convention in the year 1919, under the leadership of Abraham Mar Thoma Suffragan Metropolitan, who gave the Sangham continued support and inspiration. Every women of the Mar Thoma Church above the age of 18 years is a member of the Sevika Sangham. The Sevika Sangham has branches in all parishes of the Mar Thoma Church both in India and abroad. The Sevika Sangham at Ebenezer Mar Thoma Church is an extremely active and spirited group who play an extremely active role in the development and growth of our church.

Sunday School

In the Mar Thoma Church, Sunday Schools play a very significant role in the spiritual renewal and growth of young generation. The formal inauguration of the Sunday School Samajam took place at Maramon Convention in 1905. 'Come to Jesus and bring every child to Jesus' is the motto of our Sunday school. Since then the Sunday School organization has grown and changed but our motto still remains the same.Ebenezer Mar Thoma Church Sunday School is held every Sunday (with some exception) between September and June at 11:00am. It is comprised of an extremely dedicated team of teachers and an eager group of students who have led to its continued success year after year. Our students actively participate in Diocesan-led initiatives such as the National Diocesan Exam and VBS. In addition to bible study, our students also learn about church history and the growth of the Mar Thoma Church.

Youth Fellowship and Yuvagena Sakhyam

The Mar Thoma Yuvajana Sakhyam was organized with a view that all the young people in the Church should accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord, and bear witness to His saving power. It was organized in 1933 by a resolution of the Sabha Prathinidhi Mandalam. Ebenezer Mar Thoma Church continues to honor this resolution with not only an active and thriving Yuvajana Sakhyam but also an extremely devoted Youth Fellowship group. Both groups work hand in hand to develop our youth as responsible young men and women who can face the challenges of life while upholding the faith and practices of the Mar Thoma Church and Christian values.

Parish History

Ebenezer Mar Thoma Church, New York, established on 1987, Previously this parish was known as 'Congregation of Greater New York', one of the first Mar Thoma Congregation in USA , established on 1976.

His Grace, Late Rt. Rev .Dr. Alexander Mar Thoma Metropolitan renamed this Congregation as Ebenezer Mar Thoma Church and the worshipping location was Pelham Community Church, at Washington & High Brook Ave, Pelham, New York. There were seventy families regularly attended the worship service. Rev. George Varghese was our Vicar and Rt. Rev. Dr. Abraham Mar Paulose (Rev.Dr.K.U.Abraham) served as Asst.Vicar.

When we write the history of our church, we cannot ignore the period of 1996 – 2000, a new era of our North American Diocese and Ebenezer Mar Thoma church, the untold story of our sufferings and sacrifice. Even though we walked through the valley of the shadow of death, we were grateful to be the part of the history of Mar Thoma Sabha in North America. We were glad to have the historical judgment which enabled the Diocesan of North America to establish and expand their spiritual and social growth in North America.

We thank our late Metropolitan, His Grace Rt. Rev. Dr. Alexander Valiya Metropolitan, our first Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Dr. Zacharias Mar Theophilus Suffragan for their immense support and guidance

After 25 years, by the Grace of our Savior Jesus Christ, we have our own church and we have started service on our new parish on January 22nd 2012.

On March 31st 2012, His Grace Rt. Rev. Dr. Joseph Mar Thoma Metropolitan consecrated our church along with our Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Dr. Geevarghese Mar Theodosius Episcopa.
