The Joy of Faith

This last weekend at Eastbrook Church we began a new series “Unshackled: Joy Beyond Circumstances” from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Philippians. I began by looking at Philippians 1:1-26, setting the context for Paul’s letter of joy.

Below you can view the video and sermon outline of this message, “The Joy of Faith.” You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.
