DALLAS — The family of a Florida teen who was shot to death by a neighborhood watch volunteer found support at The Potter's House on Sunday.

Trayvon Martin's parents and his brother attended services at the Dallas megachurch. They came to North Texas to attend a benefit for the Justice for Trayvon Martin Foundation on Saturday night.

Bishop T.D. Jakes told them there really is no such thing as "closure," and Trayvon's mother, Sybrina Fulton, agreed.

"I know that this will never end for us because Trayvon is not going to come back. But what we do hope is that we can help somebody else's family out," she said. "And I just also want you to know that God is in control."

Trayvon Martin was killed in February in a case that shocked the nation.

George Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in his death. Zimmerman is currently out on bond, awaiting trial.
