LRC Official statement on the Uvalde, Texas mass shooting

Lake Region Conference is shocked and saddened by the barbaric actions of the school shooter in Uvalde, Texas. The deadly attack took place on Tuesday morning, May 24, 2022. It is unsettling to our church family what gun violence and the murder of innocent children and teachers can do to a community and its people.

An 18-year-old gunman opened fire at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, killing 19 students and two adults. He used a single AR-15 and a pair of 23-round magazines. In one classroom – all of the killings occurred.

Let us remember the city of Uvalde in prayer. We are living in a unique time in history, the time of the end, and we have been given a unique call to spread the Three Angels’ Messages to a sin-sick world in the midst of war and gun violence.

Lake Region Conference will stand together as one with Uvalde during their time of grief, pain, and sorrow. Let us be intentional about prayer to hasten the Second Coming of Christ!

Our thoughts and prayers are with the city of Uvalde, the nation, our communities, and the families of those killed in this unspeakable act of school violence.
