Church shooting suspect's friend to plead
COLUMBIA, S.C. >> A friend of the white man accused of fatally shooting nine black church members in South Carolina last year is set to plead guilty to two federal charges, according to an agreement signed by federal prosecutors and filed online Monday.
Joey Meek, 21, has agreed to plead guilty to lying to authorities and failure to report a crime, according to the agreement, with a hearing set for Friday in Charleston. He could face up to eight years in prison on those charges, although prosecutors note in the agreement that they will argue he deserves less time if he's helpful in their ongoing case.Read more »

Brian's family last heard from their loved one one year ago, on April 25, 2015. Please drop in as your schedule allows and pray with us that God will bring Brian home soon. The day has no agenda. We will sit quietly and pray, sing, visit, or read Scripture as the Lord leads. If you're not comfortable praying out loud, that's OK. Just being there will be a great encouragement to the family.
