GERMANTOWN (WITI) — Since Mother’s Day Weekend, Life Church in Germantown has been paying the Washington County Sheriff’s Department to provide security at weekend services. Church leaders say so far, having the security system in place has been a success.
As parishioners made their way into Life Church on Sunday morning, June 2nd, many of them noticed the uniformed Washington County Sheriff’s deputy in the atrium.
“No news is good news and so far, everything, all of our people have really appreciated it and it’s been going really well,” Executive Pastor Ryan Coggins said.
Coggins says it is his hope that the deputy never has to act while at the church.
Longtime church members say it is not alarming, but reassuring to see a deputy every weekend.
“I don’t think anybody gives it a second thought. I think as it pertains to a church, it’s a little bit different but again, given the day and age in which we live, it don’t think it’s been an issue at all,” Kevin Nash said.
