A Reset on Service

This past weekend at Eastbrook, we continues ourfour-week preaching series entitled “Reset.” In this series, we are exploring four aspects of our life together as Christ’s church based on the words of Hebrews 10:24-25. This week we focused on the phrase: “Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” There is much more going on at Eastbrook during this four weeks than a preaching series, so let me encourage you to find out more here.

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.


“Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds…”  (Hebrews 10:24)

A Reset on Our Concept of the Church

The church as an event or a consumer activity 

Last week: the church as a family who loves one another

This week the church as a body who serves one another

A Reset on How the Church Serves as a Body (Romans 12:3-8)

Like a body, the church is made by God and gifted by God

Like a body, the church has different parts that belong to one another

Like a body, the church has differing abilities in differing parts

Like a body, the church requires every part to actively use its unique gifts


Dig Deeper

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

  • Memorize some portion or all of either Hebrews 10:24-25 or Romans 12:3-8.
  • What do you think are your spiritual gifts or talents given by God? Pray about that and then make a list of those you are aware. Perhaps you could discuss that with someone close to you so you both can grow in your faith and service.
  • Set aside space and time this week to meditate on Romans 12:3-8. Let the Lord search through your heart and mind about your love for Him and for others. Ask the Lord to direct you in service within the church for His glory.

A Reset on Love

This past weekend at Eastbrook, we began a new four-week preaching series entitled “Reset.” In this series, we are exploring four aspects of our life together as Christ’s church based on the words of Hebrews 10:24-25. This week we focused on the phrase: “Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love.” There is much more going on at Eastbrook during this fort weeks than a preaching series, so let me encourage you to find out more here.

“Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,  not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)

A Reset on Our Image of the Church 

Various images of the church in Scripture

The church as the bride of Christ (John 3:29; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 5:25-27; Revelation 19:7-9)

The church as the family of God (John 1:12; Ephesians 2:19; 5:1-11; 1 John 3:1-2; 2 Peter 3:9)

The church is a community loved by God and called to love one another

The church is not an event or a consumer activity

A Reset on How the Church Loves as a Family (Colossians 3:12-17)

Christian love and character

Christian love as bearing and forgiving

Christian love as the source of unity

Christian love and peace

Christian love and prayer

Christian love and correction

Christian love and worship

Christian love and the Holy Spirit

Christian love and life in Christ

Eastbrook-At-Home-Series-GFX_16x9-Title

Join us for worship with Eastbrook Church through Eastbrook at Home at 8, 9:30, and 11 AM. This weekend we begin our new 4-week series “Reset.”

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.

If you are able to do so, let me encourage you to join us for in-person services at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 AM this weekend at the Eastbrook Campus.

If you are new to Eastbrook, we want to welcome you to worship and would ask you to text EBCnew to 94000 as a first step into community here at Eastbrook.

Each Sunday at 8, 9:30, and 11 AM, you can participate with our weekly worship service at home with your small group, family, or friends. This service will then be available during the week until the next Sunday’s service starts. You can also access the service directly via Vimeo, the Eastbrook app, or Facebook.

If you are not signed up for our church emailing list, please sign up here. Also, please remember that during this time financial support for the church is critical as we continue minister within our congregation and reach out to our neighborhood, city, and the world at this challenging time. Please give online or send in your tithes and offerings to support the ministry of Eastbrook Church.

Reset – a new series at Eastbrook Church

This coming Sunday at Eastbrook Church we begin a new preaching series entitled “Reset.” This series is part of a beginning of the year “reset” of our faith and community life as Eastbrook. We know that many have been disengaged during the past couple years, while some are new and have not yet found a place to engage. We will explore four aspects of our life as a church n this series based in Hebrews 10:24-25, which says:

“Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)

This series is actually more than a series as well. Each and every aspect of our life and ministry as a church will be touched by the Ideas of our “Reset,” which I describe in the video below.

Find out more here and consider joining in with a “Reset” small group or stepping forward to engage with God and His people in new ways. This is a great time to reconnect if you’ve disengaged from church and connect deeper if you’re new. 

Here are the weekly topics for this four-part series:

September 11 – “A Reset on Love”

September 18 – “A Reset on Service”

September 25 – “A Reset on Meeting Together”

October 2 – “A Reset in Light of the Future”
