Chanting "Stop violence, choose peace," members of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Detroit, took their service to the streets July 29.
More than a hundred people marched from the church to an open-air service with their message against gun violence in the city.
They prayed at the site where a young man was killed the previous week before marching to a vacant block for worship.
This was the congregation's third anti-violence service this summer. Parishioners urged residents to speak up when they have information about crimes.
