Parent/Teacher Interviews

A great passage that reminds us that man’s plans are not God’s plans – He is bigger than that!

On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. 2 Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him. 3 But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off both men and women and put them in prison.  4 Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went. –Acts 8:1-4

In His service,

Robert Burgess
