Several members of the Southwestern College volleyball team performed community service at Grace United Methodist Church (GUMC) in Winfield.  

According to Lora Andrews, pastor at GUMC, the volleyball team spent 90 hours putting in a new hardwood floor on the first and second floors of the education wing at GUMC.  Some church members also assisted with the project.
