Joy That Grows

This last weekend at Eastbrook Church I continued our series “Unshackled: Joy Beyond Circumstances” from the letter to the Philippians. This weekend we looked at Paul’s description of spiritual growth, including things that help and thing that hinder growth, from Philippians 3:10-4:3. I touched on having the right examples for growth, learning that crucifixion comes before resurrection, and the need for community in spiritual growth.

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.
