Lent is Here!
Join us for prayer, worship, and meditation every Sunday during this time of sorrow and grieving for the young victims of another school shooting. By our faith, we can make a difference in our community. Let the transformation begin! –Pastor Lydia
Bishop David Graces wrote on the next day after the tragedy, Yesterday we, as a nation and church, shared in a day where love and the cross came together. Many of you were a part of an Ash Wednesday Service. Yet it was a day where we witnessed another school shooting in Florida. The Alabama-West Florida Conference extends our prayers to our neighboring Florida Conference and the families of all those affected by this evil act.
This is the eighteenth violent incident at a school thus far in 2018. We continue to hear this should never happen in United States schools. We need our politicians to address guns in America. We need to address the mental health issues that so many suffer from in our nation. The church needs to do everything it can to help our neighbors know the love of Christ as we journey in the shadows of the cross.
