Duncan’s First Baptist Church (FBC) reached out to other churches in the area and acted as host for a prayer meeting in light of the shooting deaths earlier Monday morning.
Bryan Pain, FBC head pastor, said they were glad to be host but the meeting was the work of several pastors and churches.
“The Scriptures tell us to morn with those who morn; and to rejoice with those who rejoice,” he said. “This is an evening where we appropriately express our faith in God and call upon him for comfort.”
Pain selected 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 as the theme of the meeting, especially verse seven.
“And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.”
There were prayer stations afterwards for those who felt called for one-on-one prayer.
