Lifetree Cafe’ – “Amazing Grace”
April 30, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm| Free
An exclusive filmed interview with Terri Roberts, mother of Amish schoolhouse shooter Charles Roberts, will be screened at Lifetree Café on April 30th from 6:30-7:30PM at Zion United Methodist Church in York. On October 2, 2006, Charles Roberts backed his truck up to the entrance of the West Nickel Mines School in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He barricaded himself inside and shot 10 young Amish girls. Five died. Roberts killed himself before police could enter the one-room schoolhouse. Roberts’ mother, who was working nearby at the time of the shootings, was embraced by the Amish community. Amish members stunned observers when they openly forgave the killer and his family. The Roberts family is not Amish. Participants at this program, titled “Amazing Grace,” will experience never-before-seen footage and hear from Roberts, who still lives among the families of the girls her son murdered. Lifetree Café is free and open to the public. All are welcome! Bring a friend! 843-5261
