In the wake of George Floyd’s death, our society is grappling with race relations. As a church, we want to stand up for all those who are the victims of racism and injustice. As a church, we also want to stand up and support all those in law enforcement who are carrying out a very necessary and God-given task in maintaining civil order. To that end, we want to invite the people of Trinity to show that support in some very specific, tangible ways:
- Writing them a short letter of encouragement. Letters can be as simple as “We support you and we appreciate your service.”
- Bringing them a small gift. Since officers work out of their cars, so cookies, donuts, or other snacks they can grab and go are ideal. Gatorade or something similar goes a long way on a hot day.
- Signs of support: Some people have posted signs supporting officers at the entrances to police department parking lots. This gets the message of support to others in the community also.
To make it easier, we have compiled a list of area law enforcement divisions and their mailing addresses:
