A Hancock County church honored law enforcement Sunday with a special morning service.
The annual Blue Line service at Emmanuel Baptist Church focused on thanking those who wear the badge.
“We’re definitely excited to be able to reach into our local law enforcement communities and let them know that we care for them, and that we pray for them and honor them and try to teach the people to respect them as well,” said Matthew Stahl, pastor of the church.
Stahl said each year, they invite officers to attend the special service to show their appreciation for Coast law enforcement. Last week, they delivered gifts of appreciation to officers, books of devotions written specifically for police.
