WELCOME TO EAGLE BROOK'S SPRING LAKE PARK CAMPUS!
We'd love for you to join us this weekend at Spring Lake Park! I can't tell you what a thrill ride it's been to see how people are finding new life here. Already a vibrant church location with more than 1,500 attenders, the SLP campus makes a big church feel small.
If you want the opportunity to share in all that Eagle Brook has to offer but are looking for more intimate setting, this location is a great one to try. Get to know people, connect with God, and grow in your faith. We also have incredible kids' services! If you want a glimpse of what it looks like when you arrive, watch the video above, or visit our What to Expect page for a welcome from Senior Pastor Bob Merritt.
—Steve Whicker, Spring Lake Park Campus Pastor

new service times coming
We have recently evaluated the effectiveness of having services on Sundays only. We compared the results of our three Sunday afternoon services with the previous results of our two Saturday evening services. After nearly a year of investing in three new service times with a moderate response, it’s become clear that our Saturday afternoon services consistently reach more people than our Sunday afternoon services. Please take a moment to watch a video that explains the changes to the service times. The updated service times are listed below:
- Beginning Saturday, Aug. 6
Saturdays: 4 & 6 pm
Sundays: 9 & 11 am, 2 pm
Frequently Asked Questions
While the current schedule opens seats for more people, fewer people than expected have made use of the open seats. Therefore, we’re relaunching services at times when more people are available to attend.
+ Sunday afternoons are the only option for me. What is my best option?
Eagle Brook offers Sunday afternoon services at 4 and 6 pm at our Blaine campus just a short distance from SLP. Please visit eaglebrookchurch.com for more information.
+ Do you foresee future service time changes?
Over the past three years the Spring Lake Park campus has tested a variety of service schedules so that we could address overflow issues and offer more seats. We don’t anticipate making further changes in the foreseeable future.
The Sunday 2 pm service continues to be one of our most attended Sunday afternoon service times. In addition, the Blaine campus offers 4 and 6 pm Sunday services. Keeping the 2 pm service allows us to make more options available to EBC attenders in the area.
Having one Sunday afternoon service will provide a great experience at a time when summer attendance typically drops considerably. And, it will make the best use of our volunteer’s time as we take steps to rebuild our Saturday volunteer teams.
No. The Sunday Only service model accomplished our goal of making more seats available at SLP and a moderate number of new attenders have made use of them. At the end of our ministry year, the facts show that we are more effective in accomplishing our mission with a Saturday/Sunday model of ministry.
Thank you for your support! Please pray for our campus and all of Eagle Brook Church, that we are filled with wisdom and grace as we move forward. Also, please encourage your friends, family and small group members to serve. We have multiple volunteer spots open with the relaunch of our Saturday services and we need more great volunteers like you!
