At Bulldog Builders, you’ll find fun, faith, and friends, usually with a little food!


Bulldog Builder's Mission Trip

The Bulldog Builder's Community-wide youth group traveled to Timber Creek Camp in Pulaski, MS during Spring Break week 2018. We traveled to Southaven, MS our first night and stayed at Getwell Church. On Sunday morning, we worshipped with the Getwell Church family and then continued on our way to Timber Creek Camp. We spent the week cleaning up the camp, walking the trails and removing fallen trees, etc., cleaning and making repairs in cabins and spending time in Huddle groups and in worship. Thank you for your prayers as we traveled with these young people. What a wonderful opportunity for our students and what a blessing for those adults who have the opportunity to travel with them.
