DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn.--The family of Holly Bobo is facing an emotional week. The man accused of killing the 20-year-old  is due in court for his arraignment thias Tuesday.

The Bobo's church is providing support for the family through prayer and held it's first Sunday service today, since finding out that Holly Bobo will not be coming home.

Praise and worship songs filled the Corinth Baptist Church sanctuary in Darden this morning. One voice was missing, though.

Pastor Don Franks said, "Holly liked to sing at our church."

Holly Bobo never got to sing her song in church, scheduled the Sunday after Wednesday, April 13, 2011. Holly Bobo's brother, Clint reporter to police that a man in camouflage took his  sister in the woods near their home. Zachary Adams is now charged with first degree felony murder and especially aggravated kidnapping.

Pastor Don Franks said, "Holly is up there singing with angels and down here she sang  with us."

Pastor Franks preached that the letter "H" stands for Holly and Hope, something many are clinging to.

Greeters pinned pink ribbons on attendees to show hope and support for the Bobo family today.  Pastor Franks says the family attended the service this morning, but they are not ready to speak with media yet.

Associate Pastor Brad Moore explained, "Definitely a lot of grieving still taking place."

The Bobo's released a statement on Thursday that included: "Because of Jesus Christ we will see her again. Jesus will give us strength."

For nearly the last three years, the community prayed that the nursing student would return home safely. Now that hope is shifting to another focus.

Pastor Moore said, " Comfort and peace for them and justice as well."

But justice can come with a price for the family, says Moore, "There will be an end for the news media, there will be an end for law enforcement, other people their lives will go back to normal. But for the family there will never be an end. There will never be a day that goes by  that they won't think about and miss Holly."

New Holly Bobo "Justice for Holly" t-shirts will be available on Monday. For more information on ordering, click the link.

Zachary Adams remains in Chester County jail  with no bond.
