On Sunday at 10:45 a.m. Westminster United Church of Christ will toll its historic bell 50 times for each of the Orlando shooting victims.
In 2012, the church did the same for the Newtown shooting victims.
The church invites anyone to join for worship at 10:30 a.m., or gather outside to hear more clearly.
Is your church also ringing its bell for the Orlando victims? Share the details below in the comment section.
