Remembering Sergeant Ron Helus

Ron Helus

Our Friend Of The Week feature will return soon. Today, however, we will be joining our community and our church family to celebrate the life of Sergeant Ron Helus – a national hero who gave his life to save as many young lives as possible during the Borderline shootings which recently rocked our community.

We invite you to pray for his family and for all of the families who lost loved ones at Borderline as well as those who have lost homes during the fire. Our community is resilient but what touches one of us touches us all.

    We were praying when we heard the horribly sad news. We have also been praying for everyone affected by the fires including the firefighters. So awful and scary.
    Wishing you safety and blessings. Thanks for hosting!

      Thank you Tina – the memorial service for Sgt Ron Helus (which was live-streamed nationally from our church) was incredibly moving and the first of several services we will be hosting.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Sergeant Helus’ family and all those affected by the shootings and fires.

  3. Thank you for hosting this linky and my thoughts go to the family and friends of Sergeant Ron Helus. How sad xx

  4. Alice V says:

    I’m so sorry to hear of his passing. Police officers put themselves in harms way all the time, even if something sounds as routine as a traffic violation. They never know what is going to happen. I am praying for his family.

  5. Brian Frum says:

    We are all praying for his family too, he was such a brave hero.

  6. ES Ivy says:

    Definitely a week to be Thankful to those who sacrifice so much for the rest of us!

    So sad, a very nice tribute to Sergeant Ron Helus! We will forever appreciate the work and the position our enforcement officers put themselves daily in harm’s way to protect citizens of the US. God be with his family and loved ones.

  8. Thank you for hosting, and have a great week!

  9. Many positive thoughts and prayers to everyone there. These fires are horrible. Praying the end soon. Stay safe.

  10. This is happening far too often. Innocent lives are lost every time. This poor man and his family – it is desperate to see.
