Back the Blue | Building Bridges

“The safest place for me to be is where God has called me to be.” -Sgt. Taylor, Carrollton Police Department

As the church, we are called to build bridges within our communities. In Romans 13, Paul reminds us to be submitted to authority and that those authorities are “ministers of God for our good” – for there is no authority except from God. We are thankful to the men and women, and their families, who put their lives in harm’s way for our safety. Let’s be the church by praying for our officers to have the wisdom, discernment, mental discipline and compassion they need to serve and protect our communities. A special thank you to the Officers from our local Carrollton Police Department for being with us!
And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:5
