Many of us woke up this morning to the news that a shooting had taken place overnight in the area surrounding our church facilities. For most of this morning, the area around the church was still part of an active crime scene investigation. Most of the police activity at the scene is now completed and the remainder will be completed shortly. I want to report to you that, even though this incident took place near the church facilities, there is no damage to church property and no one from the church was on the property last night when the shooting took place.
I also want to ask you to pray for those who were victims of the shooting, and for those who lost loved ones in the shooting. We also pray for the police officer who was hit by a car last night. Once again, we are reminded of the difficult and dangerous work carried out by members of law enforcement on a daily basis. We will be praying about this incident when we gather for worship Sunday morning. If you are registered for in-person worship at our facilities tomorrow, I hope you will still feel comfortable about gathering. The facilities will be open and our well-trained security personnel will be onsite and vigilant as always.
