South Carolina Prayer Vigil says
The Ku Klux Klan is planning a rally in support of keeping the Confederate flag on the Capitol grounds. They plan to have 100-200 in attendance.

Because of instructions of the SC governor, the plans for Saturday are no longer to hold a vigil simultaneously at the SC capitol. We will be holding a service of prayer at Cannon Chapel at Emory University.

For those who still wish to participate in a Counter Rally of Prayer in partnership with Trenholm Road UMC, they will gather on the East Grounds/Gardens for our Counter Rally of Prayer at 3pm on Sunday the 19th. This event will no longer be organizing a group to go on that day because of logistical issues. However, we still widely encourage people to do so on their own. Feel free to use this event as a space to organize. Also, see the prayer vigil event for Sunday posted below on the event wall.

More info for those who wish to attend on Sunday:

Clergy are asked to wear stoles (no robes or other vestments), if they are allowed to do so. Rev. Mike Smith has also asked that those who attend refrain from bringing signs of any kind, given the possibility that there's always a chance that some well-meaning person my bring a sign with a message that is as incendiary as the message we are there to oppose. With that in mind, it just makes sense to ask everyone to refrain from bringing a sign. The goal is to simply ask folks to join us in solidarity and prayer.

Afterward, Carly Wicklund had graciously offered to serve Communion for us at her parsonage, which is only a few miles from the Capitol (750 adder Rd. Columbia, SC 29205). Carly has still offered to do this, and will gladly host those who would like to reflect on Sunday evening in Columbia.
