The June 17th Wednesday Worship Service will be
the ELCA Prayer Service for the Commemoration of the Emmanuel Nine.
An ELCA Prayer Service for Commemoration of the Emanuel Nine will be available for online viewing at 11:00 a.m. Central Time on June 17, 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. The service will include leaders from around the ELCA and ecumenical partners, including episcopal leadership from the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton will preach the sermon. We join in a time of repentance, mourning and prayer as we remember these nine martyrs and renounce the sins of racism and white supremacy.
