June 17th is the fifth anniversary of the evening nine people were shot and killed during a Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C.
We join in times of repentance, mourning and prayer as we remember these nine martyrs and renounce the sins of racism and white supremacy.
Our online service will be on Wednesday evening, beginning at 9 pm, the time when the shootings began, and will be streamed on

The liturgy is available at CLOKC.church.
