Good Friday 2014

Good Friday_Facebook

 

God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. (1 John 4:8-10)

Join us for worship on Good Friday at Eastbrook Church. We will have two services this year: 1:00 PM and 7:00 PM.

The services will include music, video, dance, readings, a message, and communion. You will not want to miss this  worship experience of drawing near to the cross of Christ.

The Ten (discussion questions)

Here are the discussion questions that accompany my message, “The Ten,” from this past weekend at Eastbrook Church, which began our new series on the Ten Commandments entitled “Chiseled.”

Discussion Questions:

1. When you hear the phrase “Ten Commandments” what do you think of? Why?

2. This weekend at Eastbrook, we begin a new series entitled “Chiseled” on the Ten Commandments. This series accompanies the season of Lent, which is a season of drawing near to God and renewing our hope in Jesus by turning from sin and clinging to the Gospel. This mirrors the journey of the Hebrew people from slavery in Egypt to a new land guided by God’s deliverance. In preparation for this study, read Exodus 19:1-20:21. (If you haven’t read the entire book of Exodus before, make it a goal to do so during this series.) Then, ask God to speak to you through your study of the Scripture.

3. The story of Exodus moves from slavery in Egypt to the clash between God and Pharaoh in the plagues on to deliverance from slavery and movement toward the land of promise. The Ten Commandments are an identity marker for God and for the Hebrew people as they become the nation of Israel. Read Exodus 19:3-6. What do these brief words tell you about who God is, what He is doing, and what it means to be His people? Read the rest of this entry »

The Ten

Chiseled ThumbThis weekend at Eastbrook Church, I began our new series on the Ten Commandments entitled “Chiseled.”

The message was really an introduction on how we can see the Ten Commandments as God’s words of life, love, and mission to God’s people. I also spent time reflecting on how we should read the Ten Commandments as followers of Jesus.

The outline for the message is below. You can view the message online here or listen to it via our audio podcast here. You can also visit Eastbrook Church on VimeoFacebook, Twitter and Instagram.

This series is part three of an occasional series we are doing from Exodus. You can listen to the first two parts of this series here:

Working through Conflict in Relationships (discussion questions)

Here are the discussion questions that accompany my message on working through conflict in relationships from this past weekend at Eastbrook Church as part of our series on relationships entitled “Made for It.”

Discussion Questions:

1.     When was a time that you faced tremendous conflict in relationships? How did you resolve it? If it didn’t resolve, then what did you do?

2.     As we conclude our series, “Made for It,” we are entering the messy waters of conflict in relationships. Before you begin your study, ask God to speak to you through your study of the Scripture.

3.     In Genesis the purity of the Garden of Eden is quickly tarnished by sin and evil. Read Genesis 3 and 4. Reflect on why and how conflict erupts in these first few chapters of the Bible? Read the rest of this entry »
