PRAYING FOR OUR CITY The tragic shooting last weekend that ended 50 lives and seriously injured 53 others, calls us to compassion and prayer. The families of the deceased, those recovering from their wounds, and those whose lives continue to hang in the balance need more than anything else to know the love of the Savior. Continue to pray for God’s healing, comfort and hope.
