"Whether we got two people at this or 200 people, we just always want to be known as the church that people can come into and express their feelings," said Zac Clark, Associate Pastor of Aurora Hills Baptist Church.
Most who attended the vigils had no direct connection to the shootings but were deeply saddened by what happened.
"I think everybody's heart is just broken for all the victims and their families," Lizze Eckhout said. "We just live pretty close to where the shooting happened, and we heard the sirens go off. So, we just felt we needed to support our community."
When there are no answers for a tragedy like this, people often turn to faith to help them through.
"It's so unexpected. It's so tragic that it's kind of hard to just cope with things that are going on around you," Dominique Buckley said.
