Upcoming Events - Freetown Road Church of Christ
So far in our look at the life of Joseph,
we have seen calamity and more calamity
piled on this young servant of God. In
spite of being faithful to both God and his
owner, Potiphar, Joseph finds himself in
prison after being falsely accused of sexual
assault. In prison, he rolls up his sleeves
and goes to work again, and again rises to
the top. He proves to Potiphar he is still
trustworthy. Finally, in this dismal setting, Joseph sees the doors to
his future begin to slowly creep open. Today we will learn how God
works to bring us out of the hard times.
I want to commend Rickey Brown for his excellent sermon last Sunday night. Rickey is carrying a full load right now in his studies in the
school of preaching at Brown Trail. Nevertheless, he still finds time to
arrange our worship services, assigning men to the various jobs each
Sunday morning and evening and, he makes sure each spot is filled
each week. This makes my job so much easier. I appreciate him and I
hope you let him know you do too.
In Christ, David
