Roseburg residents pack churches as they begin the healing process

Roseburg, Ore. — Members of Wellspring Bible Fellowship singing out, looking up, and leaning on one another. Finding comfort through the word of God. It was a full house Sunday with the pastor tailoring his sermon to help the community find peace in this trying time.

The same went for Redeemer’s Fellowship. It was an emotional service for many, but members said they left with a great sense of hope despite the huge hole in their community.

“The Lord’s love is more powerful than evil and he has overcome evil with good,” member Molly Mcamis said. “There’s sin and there’s nothing we can do about it. It’s a disgusting and real thing and all we can do is love one another.”

Believers said they find strength knowing God can bring good out of tragedy. So they’ll stand solid together.

“You can’t give up, you can’t let evil take over, you can’t do it you got to stand up for what you believe,” member Roger Hanson said.

Pastors in Roseburg are partnering with Community Health Alliance. They’ll be offering services on campus to those who need it.
