We’ll Leave the Light On: Becoming a Radically Welcoming Church

I concluded our “Pave the Way” series at Eastbrook Church this weekend with the message, “We’ll Leave the Light On: Becoming a Radically Welcoming Church.” The main point of the message was that because of the love of God, the church as God’s community must be radically welcoming. There were a variety of texts that I turned to for this message, which you can see in the message outline below.

You can listen to the message here at the Eastbrook web-site. You can also subscribe to our sermons for Eastbrook via the RSS feed or iTunes. You can also follow Eastbrook on Twitter.

The outline for the message is included below:
