Services resumed Sunday morning at the Alabama church where a gunman shot three elderly people dead on Thursday at a potluck dinner.

During the service, Rev. John Burress said the slain members of the church were killed while following Jesus’ lessons of embracing outsiders.

“They made sure that everyone was welcome at their table,” Burress said, according to a local outlet. “It cost them their life.”

Saint Stephen’s Episcopal Church previously announced that members will gather for morning worship “in the wake of unfathomable loss and grief in the hope of Christ’s Resurrection.”

On Thursday, Walter “Bart” Rainey, 84, of Irondale, Sarah Yeager, 75, of Pelham and a third person were killed in the shooting attack. Police did not release the name of the third victim, an 84-year-old woman, due to her family’s request for privacy.
