First Baptist graduates 7 Stephen ministers

Residents of military communities like Hinesville, Fort Stewart, Liberty and the surrounding counties are often hundreds of miles away from their nearest family members.

That's what's up

"That's what's up!" is a very popular saying among youth and some "hip" older people. This saying usually is associated with a minor or major accomplishment by a friend, such as, "Wow, your new car is nice. That's what's up!" It also applies when you hear about something that's going to benefit you, such as, "You're telling me I can get a Big Mac for $1. Now that's what's up!"

Not many records exist; most of the Praise House's history has been passed down in the form of stories from one generation to the next.

Shake it off, walk out on top

Once, a simple little song was written and it told the story of how a goat got caught in a well. After many failed attempts to rescue the animal, a decision was made to just bury the old goat in the well and count it as a loss. However, the more dirt the farmer threw in the well, the more the old goat would just shake it off and pack it under its feet. Eventually, the goat climbed out.
