THIS IS US: The Story of Joseph's Family...and Ours

A gripping drama of jealousy, sibling rivalry, blended families, betrayal, temptation, heartache, and revenge. It’s the story of Joseph - but it’s our story, too. Whether families of origin or families we’ve built, few leave their members completely free of scars. In this six-week sermon series, Pastor Alf explores familial dysfunctions against the backdrop of Joseph’s own experience with these emotionally-charged issues. We’ll learn that while we cannot escape the hurts of our past, we need not be defined by them. With God’s eternal hope and healing, it’s possible to embrace a new future and, like Joseph, find forgiveness, redemption, and purpose.

Being Human Podcast

During Pastor Alf's series THIS IS US, special editions of Being Human will focus on family dysfunction.
