School Shooting in Uvalde

Date Posted: 5/25/2022

Statement from Bishop Scott J. Jones

The elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas yesterday was nothing short of an act of absolute evil -- we have seen too many innocent lives lost because of violence and we must do more to ask our government officials to act swiftly. God’s word speaks strongly to the inordinate importance of protecting and caring for His little children.

I ask that you and your congregations join with me and the entire Texas Annual Conference in praying fervently for each affected family, the first responders and the entire community of Uvalde every day this week at 12:17 p.m.


Bishop Scott J. Jones
