Each year we get the privilege of serving our local community through Barlow Serve. It’s a great opportunity for us to be the hands and feet of the LORD and watch the school grounds transform from beginning to end. Let’s work together as a team to help prepare and beautify the school and grounds for the upcoming year. This year is special because we are working with a newly appointed principal and head custodian.
