“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; love and faithfulness go before You.”
~Psalm 89:14

To our great sorrow and bewilderment, twenty-eight year old, Sandra Bland, an active young adult who grew up in our church family, has passed. Sandy was in the custody of authorities in Waller County Texas, after being stopped for a routine traffic violation. She died while in their custody. As her church family, we mourn.

In tribute to the vibrant young person Sandy was as a member of DuPage AME Church for 18 years, this Sunday, July 19th, at 10am, we will have a “Prayer Walk” around the church grounds as a public expression of unity and a desire for justice in her case along with so many others. A Petition Signing to urge a comprehensive investigation with integrity regarding the circumstances surrounding her death will occur in conjunction with the walk.

Please stay in prayer for her family, our church family, the African Methodist Episcopal Church family and persons everywhere who desire to live by truth and justice.

Prayerfully,
Pastor James F. Miller
