Church services held for ACA victims and family members
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- Victims lost and saved in Friday's massacre will be remembered at Palm Sunday church services across the Binghamton area. At this Methodist church, several congregates had personal connections with the victim's.
Many teared up during the service as the Reverend asked for prayers and blessings for all those affected by the tragedy.
Some remained hopeful and turned toward their faith, while others were thankful family they knew at the ACA were spared.

"It's our life in heaven that brings us peace. Live here on Earth is the struggle, it's the hard time. But it reminds us that God loves us,” said Linda Guernsey, friend of ACA Victim Roberta King.
"I was just so glad that our family came out of it all right, and I felt badly for everyone else in the community,” said Joe Gould, cousin survived shooting.
The church, like many other religious centers in the community, has reached out to assist victims and their families. They also announced that a collection will be started for a victim's assistance fund.
