PELLA (WHO) -

A band-aid for a newly born wound.

More than 100 people gather at the First Christian Reformed Church in Pella to honor the victims of a Thursday crash. Three people died and two -- including the driver -- got hurt when a pickup truck slammed through the doors of the Pella Walmart store.

Pastor Brad Meinders led the group and offered scripture to those needing guidance just hours after the crash.

The pastor opened the door to people of all ages, and denominations. He believes the entire community is need of prayer after the tragedy.

"This is the Christmas season and that's what makes this really hard and yet he is our hope," said Meinders.  "It doesn't matter who you are this is going to hit you. It's a tragedy."

People also prayed for the driver.
