FAIRLAWN, Va. (Oct. 9, 2015) -- On Sept. 20, in honor of our first responders here in New River Valley, the congregations of the New River Circuit got together and had a celebration dinner.
With the help of Fairlawn Elementary School, these three congregations served 85 firefighters, paramedics, and police officers with their families. It was a success beyond our expectations.
The Rev. Ginny Tompkins is pastor of the New River Circuit.
