    Thank you, Pastor Greg, for posting this. I’m printing it and putting it by my computer! This series on the life of Joseph has been so amazing, and really life changing. Thank you for letting the Lord work thru you to work in the lives of those at Calvary Auburn. You are a blessing to me personally and to our church.

    Thank you for these Notes. What a comfort and blessing to know that we have Jesus to carry us through all of our ups and downs. Like the song,”Just give me Jesus.”

    I visited Calvary Auburn a few times and liked it very much, the more I go the more I seem to like it. The series on life of Joseph was great, very educational. Its amazing how much can I apply to my life’s situations from charecters/examples taken from Bible.
