Endicott Church Readies Interfaith Service Honoring Shooting Victims
Local faithful will gather Wednesday to support those in South Carolina. The Cornerstone Community Church in Endicott will host a multi- faith prayer service at 7pm Wednesday night.
The service was organized by the Broome County Council of Churches in response to interest from the local faith community following the recent shooting at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, which claimed the lives of nine worshipers.
"This is a response from the faith community, responding to what I believe is a very felt need in our community and our country." - Reverend Dr. Greg Johnson.
All are invited to attend. There will be readings from Howard Thurman and Martin Luther King, as well as prayers and music from various faiths.
