        Prayer, hope, sadness and an overwhelming faith in the healing powers of God filled the Original First African Baptist Church Sunday evening, as local residents of all races came together at the Statesboro church for a community service of unity in the wake of the Charleston church shootings.
        More than 250 people packed the small church on Westside Road and took an active part in the service, called "Towards Wholeness: A Community Service of Reflection and Response."
        Look for more coverage Monday, including video, of the emotional service on and full coverage in Tuesday's Statesboro Herald.
