The sermon this week is preached by Pastor Steve Valleskey. He served in both home and world missions during his years as a pastor, most recently having been pastor at Abiding Word Lutheran, Houston near the intersection of 1960 & 45. Pastor Valleskey retired after 49 years of ministry in the Conroe area.
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.
