Special Chapel for Campus and Community on Monday 4/6/09 -- All Are Welcome

Dear Friends, Students, Faculty, Staff and Trustees,

In addition to the community services scheduled this week on Sunday and Wednesday, there will be a special chapel service on Monday, April 6, 2009 at 10:30 AM in Lowe Hall at Davis College. Our campus will gather together to pray for all of those affected by Friday's tragedy. We will be joined by crisis-trained chaplains from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Rapid Response Team who have already deployed to Binghamton. We are grateful for their ministry on our campus and in our community as they seek to provide the comfort of Christ. You can read the statement issued by Franklin Graham on the website at www.bgea.org

Friends from our local churches and the Greater Binghamton community are invited to join us for Monday's chapel -- all are welcome. If you cannot join us in person, join with us in prayer. Pray for for the shooting victims and the families of those who died. Pray for the law enforcement officers and community leaders. In particular please remember Professor Bonnie Novak and our five Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) students. This group has been going to the Civic Center, the site of the tragedy, on Wednesdays this semester. The students are anxious to know about the people they taught and befriended at the Center, and at the same time, they will be coping with many different emotions in the coming days and weeks. We covet your prayers on their behalf.

In Christ,

Dr. Dino J. Pedrone
President
