On Sunday, local politicians and pastors held a church service at Judah Church, honoring George Floyd and giving the community a chance to come together through prayer.
Pastor Clint Brown told FOX 35 Orlando that "Tonight, it's just about encouraging churches to utilize that platform that we get every week to then share with people how important it is to be one, to see others who are hurting and respond to that hurt."
