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.
