The church, along with a few sponsors, cooked a big barbecue lunch for the officers.
They say it's the right thing to do for officers who give up so much for the community.
"Without them [police] we would be in trouble," church member Lasone Williams said. "People don't look at it like that, until they need one. Then, when they need one, they think they ought to be there. Nobody ever thinks about them [police]."
The church says they'll continue to do the luncheon every year for as long as they can.
