|SPCLC Weekly Newsletter|
This has been a news heavy week in the United States. Tragic events that happen across the country, still hit us hard here at home, and we hold in our prayers those affected and hurt by senseless acts of terror and those suffering because of natural disasters. In these times we must forget that our unity is what gives us strength.
In solidarity, Ashley Hawkins
