Church holds special service for Walter Phelps

It was an emotional service Sunday at Calvary Baptist Church. The congregation met with heavy hearts, one day after fellow member Walter Phelps died.
Phelps was the business owner of P&P Garden and Hardware. He was shot while he was working on July 3.
Calvary Baptist Church pastor Chip Gresham was close friends with Phelps and said he had a hard time delivering his sermon.
"It was a very difficult day. I had a feeling of dread before I came here today and I know that God worked and he worked it out. So I am thankful for that," said Gresham.
Five people have been arrested in connection with Phelps' shooting. It is unclear if any of them will now face murder charges.
