Community unites to end violence

September 6, 2013 

— In response to the recent shooting death of teenager Jarrett Jackson and other local youths to violent crimes, the Bible Way Church of Atlas hosted a Unity in the Community Rally and Candlelight Vigil Thursday night.

Bible Way Church of Atlas used the rally to increase awareness of various outreach programs that the church offers to young people in the community including mentorships, tutoring, gang prevention, teenage pregnancy prevention, peer pressure counseling and increasing literacy.
