Men of all ages are invited to the 2021 Meat-A-Palooza at Waterbrook on Wednesday, August 4th, at 6:30 pm.
Meat-A-Palooza is an annual event at Waterbrook hosted by our Men's Ministry. It is open to guys of all ages as a fellowship evening. We'll be announcing our new season of men's activities, study groups, and retreats. A variety of meats is served up for this free meal.
The highlight is our guest speaker, Captain Wesley Hensley.
Captain Wes Hensley from the Law Enforcement Division of the Texas Attorney General's office has received an award for valor during the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement’s annual Law Enforcement Achievement Awards Ceremony at the state Capitol. Captain Hensley serves as a commissioned officer in the Law Enforcement Division’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit.
On the afternoon of December 11, 2018, Captain Hensley and several fellow law enforcement officers were attacked by an armed suspect while executing a felony arrest warrant at the home of a violent criminal in Houston. During the course of the engagement that followed, Captain Hensley exhibited exceptional courage while risking his own life to protect others, even after being critically wounded numerous times.
During the course of the engagement, Captain Hensley twice made face to face contact with the assailant. The first time, Captain Hensley and the other officers were ambushed as they were searching the suspect’s apartment. When the officers entered the apartment’s bathroom, the assailant opened fire, hitting Captain Hensley multiple times. Believing Captain Hensley to be dead, the assailant left the room to pursue and fire on the other officers. Captain Hensley followed the assailant and again took gunfire while attempting to convince the suspect to surrender. Suffering from multiple wounds to his body and unable to use his arms, Captain Hensley then crawled his way out of the apartment while continuing to take fire.
Captain Hensley will share his story at our Meat-A-Palooza event.
This is a free event hosted in the 100 Building Auditorium on the campus of Waterbrook Bible Fellowship, 507 Thomas Street, Wylie TX.
