Hundreds of people are expected to worship with surviving members of the small Texas church where a shooting rampage left more than two dozen people dead. Members of the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs will gather today for a church service for the first time since a gunman burst into services a week earlier. The attack was the worst mass shooting in Texas history. Initial plans called for holding a service at a community center.
But as many as 500 people are now expected, so the service will be held in a local baseball park. Church representatives also plan to eventually open a public memorial inside the church, where empty chairs have been placed to represent the people killed.
