SUTHERLAND SPRINGS —Local pastors have organized a community-wide prayer gathering at the Floresville High School football stadium at 1813 Tiger Lane in nearby Floresville on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at 7p.m.

The event will be a time of prayer for family and friends of victims of the deadly mass-shooting which took place Nov. 5 at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs. The entire community affected by this tragedy has been invited to attend, with local and state leaders invited to participate as well.

“The group of pastors organizing the event hope it will be a time of healing and unity for the community,” stated Bill Bumpas, media contact for Southern Baptists of Texas Convention Disaster Relief.

All media planning to cover the event must arrive at the stadium at 6 p.m. to be directed to a designated area.
