Guiding LightThe Guiding Light Church located in Birmingham, Alabama will honor the survivors of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church bombing during the weekend of September 14th. This is the first gathering of the survivors since the bombing.
On Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 6 p.m., a Panel Discussion will be held with the survivors giving their account of the bombing which took place on Sunday, September 15, 1963 where four young girls were killed. Though these people were as young as 5-years-old during the bombing, their stories give a picture of that traumatic day during the Civil Rights Movement. At 7 p.m. that evening, the church will host a service where community churches will gather in prayer and worship for a New Birmingham.
On Sunday, September 15, at 9 a.m., the church will honor the survivors in a special Jubilee Service.
All are welcome for these special events.
