Posted at 10:39 PM, Sep 27, 2017

As the investigation into the church shooting that left one dead and seven injured in Antioch continued, members of the congregation came together for their first regularly-scheduled church service since the attack.

It was held in the church building next door to the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ, during its regular service time on Wednesdays at 7 p.m.

Some churchgoers injured in the shooting, like Catherine Dickerson, attended the service.

A member of the church took the lead, as Minister Joey Spann, who was injured in the attack, continues to recover.

“Father, we pray you’ll be with our loved ones in the hospital, even beyond the ones in the tragic accident this weekend: they can overcome these injuries,” said Danny Carter, a church member in prayer.  “Be with the doctors and nurses that wait upon them.”

In a statement the church released on its facebook page, they said they are focused on continuing to join together for worship.
