Members and friends of Wallingford Presbyterian Church and members of the larger community are invited to participate in a memorial ceremony in honor of those who died at Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday. We will gather at 9:20 am in the sanctuary for prayer. Then, at 9:30 am, we will join churches across the country, tolling our bell, reading aloud the names of those who died, and observing a moment of silence. Members and friends who cannot be present are encouraged to join us from a distance in a moment of silence at 9:30.

Our bell will ring 27 times, for there were 27 deaths in that tragic event. We are called by our faith to remember and pray for victim and perpetrator alike.

After the ringing of the bells, pastor Rob will be available in the sanctuary to talk with anyone who wants to discuss the tragic event.
