The ceremony starts at 3:45 Saturday afternoon at the Greater Union Baptist Church, located near 36th Street North and Peoria Avenue in north Tulsa.
Alvin Watts and Jake England are now facing murder charges for the shooting spree. They are also facing hate crime charges because all the shooting victims were black.
Investigators say England may have targeted black people because he wanted to avenge his father's shooting death by a black man two years ago.
Prosecutors say they will be seeking the death penalty.
The next court hearing for both men is scheduled for April 23.
