Building Usage
We have a number of people who use or buildings for reunion groups, bible studies, preparing for Sunday School.  If you or your group move furniture around, or adjust the thermostats; please make sure that these items are placed back in their original positions. We want to be good stewards with our time and funds.  Here in South Georgia we do not want our A/C running at 68 degrees when there is no one in the building.  Also before you leave please make sure that ALL doors are locked. Thank You!
