SOMERSET, Ky. (WTVQ) – In the wake of Christians who were reportedly shot and killed because of their faith during a mass shooting at a community college in Oregon this week, churches in Somerset are organizing a “Tears for Christian Martyrs” prayer event on Sunday, October 4, 2015. Event coordinator Ed Amundson says the prayer service is to draw attention to the escalating number of Christians who are being executed around the world because of their faith.
The prayer event is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday at Somerset Christian School Auditorium located at 815 Grand Central Boulevard in Somerset. Several local Church Pastors are scheduled to speak, read Bible verses and call Christians to awareness and peaceful action. The public is invited to the free event.
