Here is a prayer for this Sunday from The Book of Common Prayer:

O Lord, you have taught us that without love, all our deeds are worth nothing: Send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of charity, the true bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whoever lives is counted dead before you; grant this for the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

Join a Reset group! For one month this Fall, all of our large groups (Women’s & Men’s Bible Studies, Student Night, 20s & 30s), all of our existing Small Groups, and our Sunday Morning Adult Classes will be focusing in on Hebrews 10:24-25, as we study the same curriculum and dig into what it means to be the family of God. We want to see every Eastbrooker involved in a Reset Group this Fall. Use this link to sign up today!

We will also celebrate baptisms at the lakefront after our 11 AM service.

Here is a prayer for this Sunday from The Book of Common Prayer:

O God, because without you we are not able to please you, mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

Amen to the Apostles’ Creed

This past weekend at Eastbrook, we concluded our preaching series entitled “Living the Creed: Connecting Life and Faith in the Apostles’ Creed.” Throughout this series, we have walked through the Apostles’ Creed as a basic summary of our faith but also as a way to live our faith out with God in the world. Each weekend we have explored the biblical and theological roots of the Apostles’ Creed, while also providing specific spiritual practices and approaches to living out what we know as we ‘proclaim and embody’ the Apostles’ Creed in our daily lives.

This weekend I concluded the series by preaching on “Amen,” what it means and why we would say “Amen” at the end of the Creed.

You can find the message outline and video below. You can also view the entire series here. Join us for weekend worship in-person or remotely via Eastbrook at Home.


“Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Then all the people said ‘Amen’ and ‘Praise the Lord.’” (1 Chronicles 16:36)

What is “Amen”? 

The meaning of the word

The use of the word in the Old Testament

The use of the word by Jesus

The use of the word in the rest of the New Testament

Speaking “Amen” with our mouths 

A return to the three aspects of the Creed:

We trust this God: The creed is a cry of dependent trust in the Triune God.

We believe in God’s truth: The creed is a doctrinal summary of our shared faith.

We live in God’s way: The creed is a family story that we prayerfully live within.

Living “Amen” with our lives

The “Amen” of our faith decision and baptism

The “Amen” of daily personal living with God

The “Amen” of community life around the Lord’s table together

The “Amen” of missional living in the world God loves

The “Amen” at the end of our days

This week dig deeper in one or more of the following ways:
