MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – A Monongalia County church recognized local law enforcement officers for more than a decade of help.
Security team members for Chestnut Ridge Church handed out special engraved Yeti mugs Thursday to several sheriff’s deputies. The deputies have been helping with church traffic for 12 years.

Have them feel comfortable visiting us as well as the presence within the church and again appreciation for what they do.”
