Fargo church tells lawmakers about armed guards for its congregation
On any given Sunday, a handful of members of the Bethel Evangelical Free Church in Fargo may be wearing a black shirt and an earpiece -- much like a federal agent.
They may have an array of medical or law enforcement training -- some are retired police officers or military members -- who provide security for upwards of 2,000 churchgoers that attend every week.
A select few may even be strapped with a concealed weapon under their Sunday best.
