TRENTON, Tenn. — A West Tennessee church opened its doors to local law enforcement honoring them for their hard work and dedication to their community. The congregation at Rock Church in Trenton honored local heroes Sunday with a first-ever law enforcement appreciation sermon. “These men and woman who wear the badge, they are human beings,” Pastor Brian Petty said. “They have feelings and they need encouragement, and that’s what we wanted to do today.” Petty’s sermon focused on the universal call for help, 10-82. He says the choice for the sermon topic is to explain officers’ calling for assistance. He said officers ask for assistance, and we as people need assistance too. “We really appreciate this,” Chief Will Sanders said. “I speak for my department — all these guys appreciate whenever the community shows us support.” This is the first event The Rock Church of Trenton has held. Petty says the event was such a success he expects to hold more in the future.
