RUTHERFORDTON, N.C. (WSPA) — According to the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, our Nation’s motto, “In God We Trust,” will soon be displayed on all of their patrol vehicles.

Sheriff Chris Francis has been considering putting the motto on the cars for the past several months, but getting the money to do so has been an obstacle.  Rutherford County is located about 50 miles west of Charlotte.

Pastor David Ledford, of Fairview Baptist Church in Golden Valley, told Sheriff Francis that the church wanted to fund the project.

Pastor Ledford also stated that the church would continue to pay for the decals as new cars were added.

Sheriff Francis said “I am very appreciative of the church’s donation that has allowed this project to get underway.”

He also said “I whole-heartedly believe in our Nation’s motto and am proud that it will be displayed on the Rutherford County Sheriff’s vehicles.”
