OKC community prayer vigil for Charleston, S.C., set for Sunday, June 21

An Oklahoma City Community Prayer Vigil for Charleston, S.C., will be at 6 p.m. Sunday, June 21 at Avery Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church, 1425 N Kelham. The church’s senior pastor is the Rev. D. Lavel Crawford (pictured).

A flier and Facebook promotion about the event said all communities of faith are invited to attend.

“The entire community of faith will stand together in prayer and solidarity,” the event flier said.

The prayer event is among many being held around the country after a gunman walked into a historic black church, Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, on Wednesday in Charleston, S.C., and killed nine people, including the church’s minister.
