The River Clean Up is Sat. April 21. Meet at 9:00am in the Eastbrook Church south parking lot. We are hosting a site during the Milwaukee River keeper’s clean up. If you register on line the bags, gloves, and FREE Adult T-SHIRTS are provided. YOU provide the hands and energy to pick up trash, litter, and the bizarre and interesting pieces of garbage that somehow find their way into our beautiful river system. Children must be accompanied by a parent. Wear boots! It is helpful to bring your own gloves, as well as rakes or shovels. Here is our opportunity to reach out to our neighbors and to demonstrate being good stewards of God’s earth. Please register at the Milwaukee River Keeper's website; register for the Lincoln Creek site.
We are developing a team of Hallway Monitors responsible for helping direct children and parents, as well as ensure the safety and security of our children’s areas during Sunday services. If you are interested in serving, please contact Pastor Jay Rhodes, 414.801.0154.

Acts Quilt: The large quilt above the sound booth was inspired by Pastor Matt’s sermon series based in the book of Acts. The imagery in the quilt and the process used to create it, speak about themes in Acts, such as worship, prayer, the centrality of the Holy Spirit, individuality, and community. Symbolism abounds. The quilt is composed of 120 individual blocks representing the 120 who were in the upper room after Jesus ascended. Each block has its own personality shown in the unique color combination, just as each member of the body of Christ brings his or her own unique personality. Joined together, the blocks form a cross, the central image of the Christian community, thus suggesting that when believers come together, they comprise the church. The quilt was created to the Glory of God by many hands coming together in sweet fellowship for one purpose: worship.
