Sumter Today: Sumter’s faith leaders hold a community wide prayer event


In response to the summer protests over racial injustice, a group of church leaders across Sumter joined to hold an anti-racism march, and they’ve been meeting periodically since to address racial divides in the faith community.

Now, in response to last weeks attack against the Capitol in Washington DC, they gathered again. This time, they held a community-wide prayer service to bring congregations from different locations, sizes, denominations and races together to hear one uniting message.

We were at Jehovah Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday to be able to give you a recap of the event.
