In our current series at Eastbrook Church, “Who Am I?“, we are looking at biblical answers to questions about our identity as human beings. This past weekend I explored the ways in which we are made uniquely by God both as human beings in general and also as individuals.
This was also African Global Gateway weekend, where we took time to celebrate the cultures of our African brothers and sisters at Eastbrook Church.
