JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. (WJHL)- Officials with Lighthouse Missionary Baptist Church in Jonesborough announced they will be publicly honoring local first responders on July 4.
Officials with the Jonesborough Department of Public Safety will not only be recognized by this church but also gifted $1,000 each.
Pastor Perry Cleek told News Channel 11 on Friday that they will be giving a total of $23,000 to Jonesborough police, dispatchers, and administrators.
The release on the church’s website read in part, ” American’s who are God fearing and love our country have watched in amazement as the chorus of voices denigrating and disgracing law enforcement have steadily increased in both volume and intensity. We at Lighthouse believe enough is enough.”
Church members invited the public to this ceremony at 11 a.m. at the courthouse in downtown Jonesborough on July 4.
