Eastbrook Outdoors – August 15, 2021

On Sunday, August 15, we will meet at 11 AM for an outdoor worship service on the front lawn on the Eastbrook campus. Please note that this weekend we will only have one combined worship service at 11 AM and there will be no 8:00 or 9:30 AM services. Make sure you stay around afterwards for a neighborhood picnic & potluck following the worship service! We’ll provide food and fun activities for the whole family.

We also continue our preaching series, “Stories of the Kingdom: Parable of Jesus,” as we explore Matthew 13:3-9, 18-23, known as the parable of the sower and the soils.

This series continues our extended journey through the Gospel of Matthew, which includes our previous series “Family Tree,” “Power in Preparation,” “Becoming Real,” and “The Messiah’s Mission.”

We are asking people to RSVP for the in-person service this weekend so we can appopriately prepare for food and seating needs. You can RSVP here.

We will not be live streaming the service this weekend but it should be available on-demand by 1 PM if all goes well. You should be able to view the service via our regular online church platform, Vimeo, the Eastbrook app, or Facebook by 1 PM.

The Messiah’s Family

This past weekend at Eastbrook, I concluded our series entitled “The Messiah’s Mission,” by looking at Matthew 12:46-50. Here, Jesus’ earthly family comes looking for Him, probably making the journey from Nazareth to Capernaum. Jesus uses their arrival to reframe family in relation to discipleship and the disciple-community.

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


“Pointing to his disciples, he said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.’” (Matthew 12:49-50)

Jesus and His Earthly Family (12:46-47)

  • Beginnings and parents: Matthew 1-2
  • Siblings: Matthew 13:55
  • Eventual disciples: James (Galatians 1:19; James 1:1), Jude (Jude 1:1), and others (Acts 1:14; 1 Corinthians 9:5)
