Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather
than human beings!
The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from the
dead—whom you killed by hanging him on a cross. God exalted him
to his own right hand as Prince and Savior that he might bring
Israel to repentance and forgive their sins.
We are witnesses of
these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to
those who obey him.” - Acts 5:29-32
He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
What a wonderful gift we have in our risen Savior. A gift that is to
be cherished, a gift that o&ers life abundant, and incredible peace.
I am overwhelmed with gratitude, and blessed beyond belief by
this savior of mine, and I pray that you are as well. As we re(ect on
this Easter Season, I pray that you will be able to see Jesus at work
in your lives through the power of the Holy Spirit. Our God has
been raised from the dead, and is seated at the right hand of God
the father. This God of ours has the right to be worshiped and
adored. Our love and gratitude leads us to listen and obey and
honor him above all humanity, as easy or hard as that may seem.
Calvary took a big step on Sunday, 4/24 as a decision was made to
join the Wesleyan Covenant Association. As a church we seek the
word of God for the direction to our lives. As a church, we hold fast
to the scriptures, and desire to see the work of Jesus, through the
power of the Holy Spirit through everyone. I pray that you will be
blessed as you seek the Savior’s face!
I also want to o&er a personal thank you to the Sta& Parish
Relations Committee, the Administrative Board, and our District
Superintendent for blessing my leave so that I can spend a couple
of months with this darling infant that came to us for care at the
Dawn of Holy Week. I’ll return the 6rst Sunday of July, and I know
you will be blessed and well cared for by the line-up of preachers
6lling the pulpit, as well as one another.
May the Peace of our Savior be with you,
Pastor Joy Mitchell
