The Pathfinders had an awesome time at Sweetwater Creek State Park, 1750 Mt. Vernon Road Lithia Springs, GA 30122. Approximately70 individuals attended our inaugural Day in Nature. The Lord truly answered our prayers by holding off the rain and the day was absolutely beautiful!!! We plan to do more of these in the future.
