The Life of Joseph: From Pit... to Prison... to Palace. Joseph was raised in a dysfunctional family, betrayed by his brothers, unfairly accused, and yet Joseph turned out well-balanced, capable, and very successful. How? What did Joseph learn about God and life that allowed him to overcome his background and rise to become "lord of all Egypt" (Genesis 45:9)? Beginning with his birth, we will follow Joseph as he grows up, is thrown into a pit, sent to prison, promoted to the palace, and tests his brothers. One of the great men of God in the Bible, Joseph has many lessons to teach us. Taught by Pastor Rick Moe. This series began on April 26th, and meets on Sundays at 9:20am in room W129/130 for refreshments, singing hymns, and wonderful lessons from God's Word. Come join us.
