Eastbrook Adults


OUR MISSION: TO PROCLAIM + EMBODY
THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST IN THE CITY + THE WORLD

The Adult Ministries at Eastbrook prepare, connect, and inspire men and women of all ages to a life of Christian discipleship with a passion for service within the community or around the globe. We offer ministries for men, women, 20s & 30s, older adults, couples, and adults with special needs.




SMALL GROUPS

Life is not meant to be lived alone. Small Groups are home-based discussion groups comprised of 10-16 people. They meet weekly to study God’s Word and to support one another spiritually. Many of the groups study a sermon-based curriculum, and they can be found all over the Milwaukee Metro Area.



Small groups are gatherings of about 10 people that meet together on a regular basis. Each small group is unique in many ways including their demographic makeup, meeting location, and meeting frequency. However, they all share a unified purpose to grow in their relationship with God, support and encourage each other, pray with and for each other, and live life on mission together.

Overall, Eastbrook Small Groups exist to connect Eastbrookers to God and each other for the purpose of Community (IN), Discipleship (UP), and Mission (OUT).

We host launch events four times per year, in January, April, July, and October. At these events, we start new small groups, allowing everyone to begin their group experience at the same time. Click the event on the left to find details about our next launch event, or visit the link below to learn more about small groups!

MARRIAGE MINISTRIES


Healthy Christ-centered marriages form the foundation for healthy families, healthy churches, and healthy communities. Our mission as a church depends on Christ-centered marriages, so that we can pass our faith to the next generation. Eastbrook’s Marriage Ministry offers opportunities for those who are considering marriage, having marital difficulties, or just looking to strengthen their union.


Premarriage

Using the Prepare and Enrich assessment as our main resource, Eastbrook pastors meet with engaged couples to equip them with the tools needed for a lasting marriage. Premarital counseling is a requirement for couples desiring to be married at Eastbrook or by an Eastbrook pastor–either as a couple with a pastor or as part of a premarital class (when available). To register or receive more information, contact Jim Caler.

Marriage Development

The Art of Marriage video event weaves together expert teaching, real-life stories, humorous vignettes, and more to portray the challenges and the beauty of God’s design for marriage. Six engaging video sessions are interspersed with projects for couples to complete throughout the course. We offer this series 2 times a year during the 9:30 am service (Once in Sept/Oct and Once in May/June). There is a small fee required to cover the cost of your couple’s workbooks.
