Huntsville church keeps the memory of Sandy Hook victims alive


A Huntsville church is keeping the memory of the 26 Sandy Hook shooting victims alive.

The congregation at the Spirit Filled Worship Center held a special service in their honor.

During the "Young Adult Revival" on Saturday night, the pastor empowered people to do better in 2013.

He made the victims of Sandy Hook the focus of the special service, as a symbol of hope and healing for the new year.

"We just wanted to let them know our hearts are with them and that while they are mourning and going through this, we are in Huntsville praying for them as well," said Pastor Abraham Moore.

With so many young people in the crowd, this tragedy is really hitting home.

"We don't know exactly what they are going through, but we have an idea, and we know it's hard for them," said Latonya Moore.

It has been particularly tough for the parents of this congregation.

"Everyday is precious and we shouldn't take anything for granted. It has allowed the parents to hug their children a little bit more and kiss them a little bit more," said Abraham Moore.

That is why church leaders are working to help everyone get through this difficult time with song and prayer.

"We hear a lot of talk about it and we know a lot of people are hurting who don't even know them," said Layonya Moore.

No matter how much time passes, the congregation at this church says it is not going to let the memory of those victims be forgotten.
