The aftermath of the shooting at a church in Texas has prompted the church to take steps to make sure its congregants don’t have to share a room.
The Texas shooting has also prompted the city of Dallas to move some of its buildings out of the way of an apparent mass shooting that took place inside the church.
The church is located in Sutherland Springs, which has been hit hard by the death of a pastor, Devin Patrick Kelley, in March.
The shooting left a hole in the city’s already-devastated economy, but a city official said it’s also impacted the area’s religious communities.
The Sutherland Springs-based First Baptist Church said it has a new security policy that will be enforced in the church parking lots.
The First Baptist said the policy will be implemented over the next several weeks and the first order of business is to get a new sign posted at each parking lot to warn people to stay out of their spaces.
Church members will also have to register in person at the First Baptist church and take an oath to support the church and its mission, the church said in a statement.
The sign will be posted at all of the church’s parking lots in the area, the statement said.
