Bulldog Breakfast

On Thursday mornings, we have a team of volunteers who cook a delicious breakfast complete with pancakes (of many varieties), french toast sticks, sausage, egg casserole, and more! Our mission is to reveal the love of Christ through a relational investment in the lives of our across-the-street neighbors. Bulldog Breakfast runs every Thursday morning that students have late start through the end of the school year. Please help us spread the word about this awesome ministry, and hopefully we’ll see you for breakfast soon!
