Law Enforcement Officers Honored During Local Church Service

Posted: Updated:
WHEELING -  Sunday was a morning of praise at the Bethlehem Apostolic Temple in Wheeling, but this week's service, lead by Reverend Darrell Cummings, focused on local law enforcement.

During worship, those in attendance praised officers, as nationally, police have come under fire. 

Members of the Ohio County Sheriff's Department, the West Virginia State Police and the Wheeling Police Department all took part in the service.

Rev. Cummings gave members of each department a gift, to show how much the church appreciates their hard work. One gift was a Sincerity Pin with the inscription, "God grant me the sincerity to accept the dangers of my job, courage to do what I can do to preserve the law and order and wisdom, and put my safety in your hands."

Officer Harry Myers of the Wheeling Police Department was one member of the law enforcement present Sunday morning, "On behalf of the Wheeling Police Dept. I can speak for all the gentlemen and ladies who work for Wheeling PD when I say we know you have high expectations for us," he said. "We hope we can deliver year and year and in the coming future, and that we can build a better Wheeling. Thank you."

Members of the Wheeling Police Department have helped the Temple in many of their endeavors throughout the year, including during their recent Easter basket giveaway.
