This morning Pastor Fred Winters was shot during a worship service at First Baptist Maryville, Ill.  This happened while many of us were in church.  Please pray for the congregation of FBC Maryville as well as the family of Fred Winters.  Pastor Winters was an alumnus of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.  Below are links to some of the news reports covering this story.
