Garrett Serve Day
We appreciate Woodstock Church // Austell and participating fellowships from Knoxville, Tennessee for all of their efforts in making our campus look so beautiful. They persevered in the heat and helped to provide landscaping on our school campus. An additional thanks goes to Mr. Boggs and Mrs. Kamhout for all of their hard work painting inside our building. It takes a village to raise a child. Today the village stepped up.
