“Please pass along our thanks and appreciation to all of our subcontractors and workers at BGW, Hargett, and others. From design to construction to site work, a tremendous amount of time and energy has been expended and I want to thank you for all that you have done thus far. While we have a great amount of work left to be done, it is evident that this will be a beautiful church facility – everything from the setting, to the layout both inside and outside, to the individual features inside the church. You have truly poured your heart into your work and we thank you for that.” – Bruce Scott, Buck Run Baptist Church
