Dear Community Family, We know that you may have questions regarding the communication you received from us yesterday evening. We would like to make our church family aware that a long-time member of Community took their own life at the edge of our parking lot yesterday evening. We ask that you be respectful of the family and the situation by allowing space and room to process, Pastor Beau wrote in a statement to the church community.
We, as a staff and body of believers, are shocked, heartbroken, and grieving. The loss of someone we love, especially through such a tragedy as this, has shaken us. In this current state, I want you to know that I and our Community Staff are doing the best we can to address this tragedy.
We believe in the power of prayer, and ask that you pray for the family and loved ones and our church. Together as a body of believers we are confident that He heals the broken-hearted and binds up our wounds (Psalm 147:3). Thank you for being a church family who cares for one another and supports one another through hardship.
