Letter to Emanuel AME Church, Charleston, SC

FBC News | Posted by: ashley

The Elders have recently sent a letter to the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston SC. Below is the content of that letter.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The elders of First Baptist Church, Durham, NC want to express our profound sorrow and grief at the recent shooting and deaths of the Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney, Cynthia Hurd, Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Tywanza Sanders, Ethel Lance, Susie Jackson, Depayne Middleton Doctor, Rev. Daniel Simmons, and Myra Thompson at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston. 

We understand that situations of such a violent and extreme nature are generationally profound and carry long shadows of hurt and grief. We are encouraged by the forgiveness your congregation has modeled throughout this season of severe trial, beautifully reflecting the nature and glory of Jesus Christ and His Church. We pray that Christ will continue to show Himself to be the “God of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles” (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4) to your church community in the days and months ahead.

Be assured of our continued prayers for your church as we eagerly anticipate the day when “[Christ] will wipe away every tear from [our] eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4).

Blessings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Andrew Davis, Senior Pastor
Greg Fox, Lay Pastor
Ron Halbrooks, Lay Pastor
Rick Lesh, Lay Pastor and Elder Chairman
Chris McKeel, Lay Pastor
Ashok Nachnani, Lay Pastor
Daniel Renstrom, Assistant Pastor
Kevin Schaub, Assistant Pastor
Andy Winn, Associate Pastor
