“How to Trust in the Lord – Secrets to a Happy Life” Church 10.05.22

We are looking at the life of Joseph in the book of Genesis. A guy who kept his faith in God even when it seemed everything was against him. Today we see how Joseph finally experiences the freedom and success he was dreaming of. It’s one of those ah-hah moments when he can now look back and see how God was using the hard situations (and maybe even testing his faith) to get Joseph ready to fulfill God’s big purpose for his life. Come to Rockwell Church this Sunday to be encouraged to trust in the Lord, and keep being faithful, even when things aren’t going the way you dreamed. It’s also communion Sunday. We meet at 10:15am Sundays at 93 Midway Drive in Virginia, MN. We also have Sunday school for kids and adults at 9:00am

Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.  Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)
