This past weekend at Eastbrook, we concluded our preaching series, “I AM: Seven Identity Markers of Jesus,” drawn from the Gospel of John, with Gabriel Douglas exploring Jesus’ statement, “I am the true vine” (John 15:1).
You can find the message outline and video below. You can access the entire series here. Join us for weekend worship in-person or remotely via Eastbrook at Home.
