Williamsport Funeral Leads to Police Group Outreach

  • News

Copies of “Great Controversy” were sent to the Maryland Park Police.

A funeral service for a Williamsport (Md.) church member provided a unique witnessing opportunity.

Charles “Chuck” Holmes III passed away in June. An active Williamsport member, Holmes was also an officer in the Maryland Park Police. Holmes was passionate about literature evangelism and often distributed GLOW tracts and Bible study materials to people he met. When the funeral service for Holmes was held at the church, members decided to honor his memory by offering copies of “Great Controversy” by Ellen G. White to the Park Police officers attending the service.

Church leaders report they were thrilled when one of the police officials requested an entire case of books so that every officer in the Maryland Park Police could receive a copy. The church happily fulfilled the request.
