Rev. Raphael Warnock wears a hoodie during his morning sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church on March 25.

Worshipers in cities nationwide were wearing hoodies to services Sunday to honor Trayvon Martin, a Florida teenager shot to death last month by a neighborhood watch volunteer.

Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta and Middle Collegiate Church in New York were among the churches that honored the teen Sunday.

"I will also preach in a hoodie. We are doing this not for show, but to send a message that all humanity is sacred."  the Rev. Raphael G. Warnock said in a statement posted on Ebenezer Baptist Church's website.
