This Week at St. Paul's

For Next Sunday: Acts 2:14a, 36−41; 1 Peter 1:17–25; Luke 24:13–35 

April 23 – Second Sunday of Easter – Especially facing adversity, we have no firmer hope than following the Heavenly Father. Going through trials with Him beside us beats getting around trouble apart from Him. We must obey God rather than men (Acts 5:29), however sensible men’s suggestions seem. Heavenly Father, strengthen our stand upon Your Word. Amen.
