CREEDS – Bethel United Methodist Church will host a special service in June to honor the firefighters and emergency medical personnel who support the community in Creeds.
The Rev. Barbara St. Jean, pastor of the church, said the service is part of the congregation’s goals to support and honor those who are instrumental to the community, such those who work in the schools, police department, and fire and rescue.
“We just want to honor them because they’re a part of our community and they do great service down there in taking care of everyone in the community,” St. Jean said, reached by phone earlier this month. “The church is really about the community, and we do all we can to help out those in the community.”
Creeds Fire Station 6 serves a rural area, a place without hydrants and with potential challenges such as wild land fires. They also provide marine response services to Back Bay and the North Landing River.
The service is meant to honor firefighters, emergency medical services responders and all who work out of the station.
The service is scheduled for 9:30 a.m., Sunday, June 14, at the church at 465 Princess Anne Road.
For more information or to get involved, call the church at (757) 689-6788. All are welcome to attend the service in June — or any service, for that matter. A future event may honor police from the First Precinct.
“Part of what we’re trying to do is honor those in the community and reach out to those in the community,” she said.
