The First Presbyterian Church in Grapevine sponsored a peaceful demonstration in support of Ukraine on Sunday, March 20 at Peace Plaza, located under the clock tower of the new Grapevine Main.
According to the church’s Communications Elder Deb Hinton, approximately 300 people came by during the two-hour event.
“It was obvious that there were a lot of both conservatives and liberals there. I mean, I was shocked at how everybody seemed to be on the same page about this subject. So, people brought signs about the no-fly zone and more military support from the U.S. and things like that,” Hinton said.
