Evansville Church Hosts First Responder Sunday

A church on the North side of Evansville honored local first responders with worship and gifts Sunday morning.

Posted: Sep 12, 2021 7:08 PM

Across the tri-state, first responders have been commemorating the bravery of the heroes who lives were lost during the September, 11th 2001 terrorist attacks.

On Sunday morning, North Woods church celebrated local first responders.

Two different worship services were held, with prayers made for and gifts given to those who protect our community every day.

This was the 15th year of this service.

It is always held around 9/11 to remember the sacrifices made by first responders.

"This is normally our second-largest attended service in a year," said Pastor Bobby Pell. "And it tells me that our congregation wants to say, 'Thank you.' And so the community has a desire to say, 'Thank you' to whatever first responders choose to come."

The day ended with a family fun event with kona ice, free food and fishing at the church's lake.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
