Active Shooter Preparedness
Sunday, August 5th, in a suburb of Milwaukee, a lone gunman entered a Sikh temple, opened fire and killed six people before he himself was shot and killed. Reports say that there have been at least three other men who were shot but will recover. The investigation, led by the FBI, is currently ongoing and more information will be released as it is made available.
What’s the Christian Response?
The first step in the Christian response should be to pray. God is the only one who can fully understand the implications of the event on the individual. Pray for his wisdom in how to minister to those around you. Pray for strength, guidance and wisdom for the responders who respond to the incident.

Thank you for your prayers. Please prayerfully consider how prepared your community, church and individuals are for a disaster.
