Congregation Report - Road 68 Church of Christ

One Sunday morning in the Congolese refugee congregation at Road 68, Brother Kazadi preached on how King Solomon determined who was the true loving parent of a certain child in question. Kazadi concluded his lesson with a passage from Romans 9:8…
“This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are reckoned as descendants.” RSV
Kazadi pointed out how our Heavenly King has determined our parentage even in a world of violence and brokenness. As a result, we have both safety and belonging regardless of what Satan has done to our families here on earth. Bro. Kazadi’s lesson was all the more poignant knowing that his wife had passed away only a couple of months earlier. Kazadi continues to care for his 9 children now as a single parent and has begun children’s Bible school classes for the elementary children at the Road 68 congregation.
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” Romans 8:14 KJV
Rejoicing in belonging and safety,
Brian, Sondra, Noah, & Bryson
