Eagle Brook Church exists to bring people into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, to draw them into a Christ-centered community, and to help them grow in their faith. That’s what drives every decision we make and guides every conversation we have. As a church, we are committed to continually growing in our five values: spending time with God, following Jesus, connecting in community, serving others, and living generously.
For the past five weeks I’ve been finishing my next book, Done With That. Paul says, “The old life is gone, a new life has come.” But the old life isn’t gone. I still sin. I still get angry, say things I shouldn’t, and struggle with anxiety. So what’s gone? And what’s the new life really like?
I love the subject of this book because that’s the heartbeat of our church—helping as many people as we can leave the old life and start living a new life of joy and peace in Christ.
I am so grateful to all of you who continue to pray for, support, and get involved with what God is doing through our church. It was our best year in 27 years! Average attendance was 22,286 people each weekend, with an additional 11,000 watching online every week. We started Online Church in June of 2017 for $5 million—paid in cash. The Blaine expansion is underway and the $14 million will be paid in cash out of general fund giving. We opened our seventh campus in Wayzata High School in March 2018 with 1,567 people, and we’re planning a campaign this fall to fund a permanent campus in Wayzata. This year, 4,374 people came to Christ (a 24.5% increase over last year), 1800 were baptized, giving exceeded all expectations, and 52,225 people attended Easter services.
What a year! What a church! What a great God we serve.
