Weirton holds services honoring veterans, first responders
HANCOCK COUNTY, W. Va. —
In Weirton, firefighters, police and veterans were all honored today during two special services.
"They run in when everyone else is running out,”- “They, and they go to places that everyone else is hiding from.”
A special service honoring our heroes was held at Shiloh Apostolic Faith Church in Weirton.
"I’m glad we took the time to recognize our first responders because indeed, they need prayer for the protection for all that they do,” said Sister Rebecca Turner, a trustee.
Firefighters, police, and military veterans were thanked for their remarkable and daily service to the area’s citizens.
"Today we were blessed to honor our heroes, veterans and first responders,” said Reverend Darrell Cummings, a pastor at Shiloh. “Police sheriffs, state police, firemen, and it was such an honor to us not to see them in a crisis or something negative going on but just to celebrate them and show them that we appreciate their service."
Family, friends and residents were among the crowd watching this special ceremony
"Thank God it’s good to know that they’re there," Cummings said.
Another service mimicking this one was held earlier Sunday morning in Wheeling.
