Church bell to ring on June 12

Bell & Palm trees.jpgOur church bell will ring 49 times at noon on June 12, the first anniversary of the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

On June 12, 2016, a 29-year-old entered the gay nightclub with multiple guns and opened fire, killing 49 and wounding 53 others. The gunman was later shot and killed by Orlando Police Department officers after a three-hour standoff. Pulse was hosing a “Latin Night,” so most of the victims were Latins. It was both the deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter and the deadliest incident of violence against LGBTQ+ people in the United States.

You are encouraged to pause for prayer at noon on June 12.
