Terry Causey is the Chief Deputy of the Marion County Sheriff's Office and he has been in law enforcement for 32 years.

Friendship Baptist Church in Gresham honored their local and county first responders, like Causey, with a dinner Saturday night.

The church says it was their way to say thank you to those who protect them everyday.

Gresham is in a rural part of the county, and there are not a lot of law enforcement officers stationed there. Causey said dinners like the one the church had are important to keep community relations strong.

"Anytime, somebody gets together and does this it does that we're important to them just as they are to us," Causey said.

First responders from Marion City Police, Marion County Sheriff's Office , Marion County EMS, and Marion Pee Dee Rural Fire enjoyed dinner with the church members.
