Handyman Ministry Completes Gazebos
Two gazebos have been assembled in Covenant Gardens
Our thanks go to Tim Pittmon for leading the team. Tim kept the project on point. He always knew the next step and did not allow things to be done out of order.
He was faithful in overcoming every issue that was encountered. Tim’s leadership and knowledge has led HandyMan Ministries in being a part of providing a nice addition to our campus.
Please thank and honor our volunteer TIM PITTMON!
