THANK YOU so much for helping with Mega Sports Camp.  Thank you for those that helped with the food, prep work, and break down.  A special thank you goes out to our huddle coaches and sports coaches.  Thank you for those who purchased balls and other needed items.  Most of all, thank you for your prayers.  God blessed, and we had one profession of faith.   Jeanne  




THANK YOU:  Dear Athens Drive Church Friends, Thank you all for the many years of friendship and caring for the Thompson family.  It has been a long journey of dedication and commitment since the inception of this church of which we were blessed to be a part.  The lovely floral arrangement for mother’s memorial service and the elegant reception were very special honors of her memory.  Your kind thoughtfulness and many expressions of remembrance have lifted our spirits.  Thank you.  Sincerely, Gloria Rogers
