Special 'Law Enforcement Day' set for Jasper church

Posted

A Jasper church will be saluting law enforcement with a special emphasis on Sunday.

Mark A. Howell, the pulpit pastor of Midway Church of Christ, announced on Monday that a Law Enforcement Appreciation Day will be held at the church, which is located at 17010 Highway 69 between Jasper and Oakman.

“At a point in time when many claim to detest the men and women who serve and protect them, Midway Church of Christ chooses to heed the Bible’s teaching of giving respect and honor to those to those to which they are owed,” the church said in a release.

Guest speaker Daniel Rogers will speak during the 9:30 a.m. Bible class and the 10:30 a.m. worship hour. Rogers is an attorney with the Watridge & Tubbs Law Firm in Humboldt, Tenn. He lives in Milan, Tenn., with his wife, Janie, and their daughters, Aly and Abi.

Rogers “will share what the Bible says about topics such as obedience to civil authorities and proper attitudes to maintain toward law and order,” the release said.

A free meal will be provided after the morning worship for law enforcement personnel who serve the citizens in the county.

“All municipal, county, state and federal law enforcement officers and officials in the Walker County area are invited to be the guests of honor on this special day,” the church said in the release.

The event will be free to the public, and guests should not feel obligated to give to a special offering that will be held among Midway’s members.
