Our desire is to develop interdependent relationships with our neighbors and the world, which glorify God and honor one another!
We are so grateful to have had several opportunities to interact with and get to know our community! Through our partnership with Walton Communities, as a Partner in Education with Sanders Elementary and South Cobb High Schools, and through various community organzations we have been blessed much and prayerfully have blessed others in the process.
If you have any questions regarding our community involvement, please contact Lin Harrison, Pastor of Childhood Discipleship and Community Engagement.
