The one year anniversary of the mass shooting at a historic black church in Charleston is next week. http://goo.gl/ywnjua
Here in NC, NCGV is working in coalition with the NC Council of Churches and other organizations to promote the Stand Up Sabbath weekend on the anniversary of this tragic shooting, June 17-19.
We are encouraging congregations to do things from putting a bulletin insert in their bulletins to saying a prayer commemorating this tragedy and all lives that are lost to gun violence to incorporating these messages into the sermon. This webpage has lots of resources including a bulletin insert - http://www.ncchurches.org/gun-violence-prevention/
Please let us know if you can participate and/or if you have any questions – firstname.lastname@example.org
