Many churches in Waynesboro unite for prayer vigil after KKK flyers appeared in community

News
Thursday evening, a Waynesboro church held a prayer vigil designed to unite the community after some hateful messages were displayed in the area. 
 
Many came to the Trinity United Church of Christ to gather for prayer.
 
Across churches in the Waynesboro area, somebody put KKK flyers on the dashboards of people’s cars.
 
To combat that hate, ministers across different churches read Scripture and came with words of encouragement to show unity.
 
“I received word that the flyers were being pasted out at different churches and homes. I just became saddened and thought of the Scripture that is 2nd Chronicles, rather that is 2:14,” said Gwendolyn Bell, a Waynesboro resident. 
 
Throughout the evening, there was also the singing of hymns.
