June 17, 2015

On June 17, 2015, an evening of church meetings and Bible Study ended in tragedy for a group of the church’s clergy and members who welcomed a 21-year-old man to join them. That young man opened fire on the group, killing nine of them.

In the wake of the devastation of June 17, 2015, the faith of the Emanuel 9, their families and survivors illuminated the way: it would be by the amazing grace of God.
