News is unfolding this afternoon as police in Newtown, Conn., investigate the shooting at an elementary school there.
BMH contacted Christopher Skowronek, pastor of CenterPoint Community Church, a Grace Brethren congregation in nearby Wethersfield.
“We are about 45 miles from Newtown,” he wrote. “At the moment, I am unaware that anyone in our congregation was directly affected. As the details come out, it breaks my heart. I have received multiple phone calls from people at church struggling as they hear the news. All I can think of is the words of John at the end of Revelation, ‘Come, Lord Jesus.’ Thank you for keeping us in your prayers.”
Please pray for the children and families who have been impacted by this tragedy.
