A congregation hurting for one of their own lifted up their worries in prayer Sunday.
"We open our hearts before you and tell you that we are dismayed," First Baptist of Lenoir City Senior Pastor Jack Jackson prayed.
Isaac Grubb, 20, fell 45 feet to his death Friday night during the first quarter of the UT game at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
Grubb grew up in First Baptist of Lenior City. The pastoral staff said his family is deeply rooted in the church.
"It just brings back a flood of memories of how he was involved in our church family through basketball, Wednesday night events. We watched him grow up to be a Christian man and trusting in Jesus. Then you get that phone call that he's gone," said Family Pastor, Chris Harding.
The sudden death brought questions from the congregation. Pastor Jackson urged them to turn to their faith.
"When you're a pastor, you want to be able to say 'why?' And sometimes you just can't say why. You want to know just like them but we just have to trust God," said Pastor Jackson.
Harding worked closely with Grubb and turned to memories to grieve.
"Since his death it's been interesting to see so many of our volunteers who knew him and taught him here sharing stories, passing around pictures, and talking about their experiences with him," Harding said. "He was always making everybody laugh and always having a good time."
Grubb's visitation is set for 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 4, at Lenoir City Baptist Church. A funeral follows at 7:00 p.m.
