“Fractured” (Genesis, part 2) – a new series at Eastbrook Church

This coming Sunday at Eastbrook Church we begin a new preaching series entitled “Fractured.” This will be the second of a two-part series on Genesis, chapters 1-11. This series explores Genesis 4-11, picking up where our earlier series, “In the Beginning,” left off. Genesis is a book of beginnings, setting the stage for all that comes afterwards not only in that book but in the entire Bible. Each of these messages will explore the reality of a humanity’s fracturing from God and how we see that in each descent of the Fall through these stories. Each of these early stories speak of our need for God and leads us through a season of lament and repentance consonant with the season of Lent. This series is also accompanied by our annual devotional written by members of Eastbrook Church.
