Statement from AGC President

Posted by donna on February 1, 2017

Dear friends,

We are all shaken by the horrendous news of the attack on a Mosque in Quebec City this past Sunday evening. This senseless crime causes us to mourn with those who mourn. Our hearts go out to the grieving families. There is no justification for this type of unprovoked violence. The killing of innocent people gathering for worship violates all our Christian values and beliefs as to the sacredness of life. Let us pray for these hurting families. Let us also pray for the young man who has allegedly committed this horrible crime, that he would come to a place of repentance.

Blessings,
