Houston-based — Glorious Way Church has recently announced the launch of their Honor The Blue Campaign as churches and groups in other areas begin replicating it. The purpose of the campaign is to show support for and solidarity with law enforcement officers in the Houston area, thanking those who put their lives on the line for the people of Houston every day. The first Honor The Blue presentation event was held on August 4th, 2016 at Harris County’s Cypresswood Station.
“Police officers here in Houston and around the nation make personal sacrifices for our safety every day. The recent attacks against officers in Dallas and other cities have really highlighted the need for us to show unity with the men and women who work so hard to keep us out of harm’s way,” said Claire Buntrock, a spokesperson for Glorious Way Church and the Honor The Blue Campaign. “They put their lives on the line to protect ours. They run to the fight. We just wanted to do something to say thank you and let them know they have our continued prayers and support.”
On August 4, 2016, Pastor John Greiner and staff of The Glorious Way Church gathered at the Cypresswood police station with Harris County Constable Mark Herman, Houston Area Pastors Council President Dave Welsh, and members of the local police force to make the first Honor The Blue Presentation. The campaign presented the nearly 700 employees of the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Department and the Harris County Sheriff’s Department with a vacuum-insulated, stainless steel RTIC tumbler etched with the words of Psalm 91 and stuffed with thank you notes and coupons for free local menu items.
Real estate firm Caldwell Companies covered most of the etching costs, and tax firm Molen and Associates provided sponsorship and notes for 100 cups. Local franchises of Rudy’s BBQ, Whataburger, and Panera Bread and others donated free menu items for the cups.
As Buntrock goes on to say, “We know that the days can be long and tough for our local officers. We will never be able to show enough gratitude for what they do for us, but we hope they feel an overwhelming sense of love and support every time they look at these cups. At least for some, we feel like we’ve accomplished that. The feedback from officers has been so warm and heartfelt.”
