Dear FBCD Family & Friends:

This past Tuesday evening representatives of the Colorado Muslim community visited FBCD to express their support and solidarity in response to the massacre that happened at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, TX, last Sunday. Those present shared with about 25 FBCD members and friends a letter that was signed by more than a dozen different Muslim organizations. In return, on behalf of our community, I shared a letter of appreciation with our Muslim sisters and brothers.

Following this exchange of letters, we spent time as a group in conversation with each other. The Muslim community extended to FBCD a formal invitation to experience a service and meal at one of their local mosques. We will make plans for this to take place soon.

Below are the letters that we exchanged. Also, here is a link to Denver’s Fox News that reported on what took place Tuesday:

Please plan to be present for this Sunday’s 10:30 service. As always, invite someone to join you. They’ll be glad you did!
