Love 2 Hope
This week we will hear an update from Edinbrook’s own Sean and Kay Levesque who travel the US with their three kids educating churches and community leaders about the terrible reality of human trafficking. This new form of slavery is in our own backyard. According to MNDot in 2015, Minnesota had the third-highest number of human trafficking cases in the US. It’s time the church armed itself with information in order to fight for justice and freedom. Be here this Sunday as Pastor Brent interviews Sean and Kay to help us better understand this problem and how we can practically make a difference as followers of Christ.
The Art of Prayer
Let’s be honest, prayer is a struggle. But the Bible teaches that prayer is effective, bringing real change in our lives and in the physical world we live in. Therefore, it’s crucial we learn to pray. It’s not just that we should pray; it matters how we pray, and God teaches us about prayer so that our prayers will become realities. Whether you’ve been praying faithfully for years or you struggle with praying, this series will take your spiritual life to the next level.
When People Meet Jesus
Jesus is the embodiment of freedom, relief and forgiveness, yet so many people choose to turn away from Jesus rather than towards Him. On the flip side, for those who desire to get closer, it can seem that life gets in the way and discourages us. So what are we to do? Come learn a strategy from five guys who would stop at nothing to reach Jesus – even taking drastic measures to do so.
The Bible teaches us a better way to live. Once we desire and seek out God's wisdom, we find that putting God's Word into practice leads to less stress, more productivity and healthier thoughts. This series is not based on theory or platitudes; it's based on God's Word filtered through the personal experience and testimony of those who have put God's Word into practice. See for yourself if it doesn't prove helpful.
Hope Is Alive
Easter is more than a good thought or wishful thinking. Easter is based on an actual historical event: the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s important that we determine whether this event really happened, because if it did it is the greatest news there is. It means we can live lives filled with hope and great expectations. It means all things are possible. Find out for yourself if Jesus’ resurrection is true.
The Supremely Awesome Wildly Contagious Radically Loving Hope Filled Family

Whether your family needs just a little help or a brand new start, this series will help your family grow better together.
God Is On the Move
Many people think God and the church are dead. But miracles are still happening today. Lives are still being changed. Families are being healed. People of different color and walks of life are being brought together in the powerful name of Jesus Christ! God is not dead; God is on the move! In this three-part series, we will discover what God is doing right here in the Twin Cities. We will hear about how God is changing lives and Edinbrook’s vision and future plans, and we will learn how to better interact and communicate with people of all races.
Who Do You Think You Are?
Do you know who you are? Many of us have thoughts of ourselves that are superficial and perhaps just flat-out wrong. Culture bases our on our looks, wealth, status, and the things we’ve done in our past. But God doesn’t base our identity on these things; God basis our identity on our relationship with Him. Understanding who we truly are is crucially important because it affects every aspect of our lives (how we feel about ourselves, how we relate to others, knowing good from bad, etc.). Claiming who we are in God’s eyes is the only way to ever live in true freedom and victory.As we begin the new year, let’s examine the lies that we might be believing about ourselves. Let’s begin the new year knowing who we truly are in Christ!
A Christ-Centered Christmas: Recapturing the True Christmas Spirit
Christmas can be a glorious time of year, but it can also be misleading. Trees, lights, presents. Is this what Christmas is all about? No! Christmas is about Jesus Christ being born into the world to bring hope to sinners. So do we stop with all the trivialities? We don’t have to. In fact, we just might find that these things are symbols of a deep reality. In this series we will look beneath the surface and learn how the trappings of Christmas point us to the indescribable facets of the glory of Christ.
When All Hell Breaks Loose: Finding Hope in the Midst of Current World Events
Hurricanes, mass shootings, threats of war. It seems like the world is falling apart, and falling apart fast. Are we in the end times? If God is good, why is all this happening? Is there hope? The reality is we don’t have to live in fear or despair. It has often been the darkest times in world history when God has done His greatest work. Perhaps we’re on the precipice of something glorious. In this series we will discuss current world events, how we can navigate the chaos, and play a part in bringing about a greater good.
No Longer Slaves: If Jesus has set us free, why don't we feel free?
The Bible says, “For freedom Christ has set us free” (Galatians 5:1). Yet, how many of us still feel like we’re struggling to walk in freedom? How many of us still feel enslaved to things like fear, worry, and guilt? If Jesus has set us free, why don’t we feel free? In this series, we will define true freedom, explore the root of our struggles, and learn how to align our lives with the reality of our freedom in Christ. Because of Jesus, we really can live free!
Remembering can be a hard thing for many of us. Events, celebrations, activities – all seem to fade from our memory as time moves forward. While in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus made a bold decision to drink from a “cup” in obedience to His Father. This cup contained things in it that He simply did not want to endure. Yet, He knew that He had to. The message “Remember” unpacks “the cup” and is a challenge to all of us to never forget what Jesus chose to do and what He experienced on the way to the cross as well as while on the cross. His choice was because of our sin and driven by His love!
The Art of Joy: A Series on Philippians
Is it possible to have a sustaining joy in the midst of trials and suffering? According to the Apostle Paul, joy is something for which we should strive. Paul is able to write a letter to the church in Philippi while imprisoned for his faith. This letter overflows with Paul’s joy and excitement, and he encourages the church to rejoice despite the hardships they’re facing. This joy is not a superficial happiness based on good circumstances, this is a deeply felt pleasure of the soul rooted in hope, encouraged and strengthened by a community of believers. As we study Philippians, we just might discover how we can experience a deeper joy despite the circumstances of life.
Fight For Marriage
Marriages don’t just slip into “happily ever after.” Marriage takes intentionality and effort. Two people who each have their own unique struggles, insecurities, and faults are bound to have conflicts at times in marriage. But when we connect with our spouse, deal with conflict in healthy ways, work on communication, and commit ourselves to each other, our marriages can thrive. Whether you are married or plan to be married someday, or can simply be an encouragement to a married person, this series is for you! Healthy marriages don’t just happen; we have to fight for them.
