Upward Stars 8th Grade Boys (Blue and White Team) - Giving Back Through Service at the TN Baptist Children's Home

Monday, April 20, 2015 2:48:35 PM

Two of our 8th Grade Boys' Teams enjoyed volunteering/serving at the TN Baptist Children's' Home in mid-April.  Coach Andrew James' BLUE Team and Coach Lance Akridge's WHITE Team, and a few dads, were able to "give back" by helping with a landscaping project (i.e. "pulling weeds/spreading mulch").  Special thanks to Jeff McGinnis, TNBCH Team Member, for providing the opportunity to serve and for his talk about the purpose of TNBCH.

We are thankful for the TN Baptist Children's Home and their mission: "Our mission is to minister the love of Christ to children and families in crisis."
