I've been teaching this class for about 5 months, but my wife, Linda, and I taught teenager and young adult classes for about 5 years or so.  When asked to teach one of the "Explore The Bible" classes, I felt led by the Lord to take it.  In doing so, I believe He is using it as His way of showing me more of Him as I prepare for others.

A little about me:  My wife, Linda, and I have been married for 37 years.  We have 3 adult children.  Our daughter, Marci, and her husband, Tim, have two sons named Jared & Zachary.  Our son, Nathan, and his wife, Jean, have one son named Noah (with Baby Choo-Choo on the way!)  Our youngest son is Matthew.

My favorite hymn is "What a Friend I Have in Jesus."  I just like it!  Jesus is so much more than a friend - but, WHAT a friend He wants to be to every one of us!

If you'd like to learn more about what the Bible can tell you, we are a class of adults learning and sharing together that has a place for you!  Come and join us!

Our class is currently meeting downstairs in the middle building of the church.  Take either side door from the parking lot and go down the short flight of stairs.  Our room is clearly marked.  If you would like to know more about our curriculum, click this link:

I have been the treasurer at Grand Prairie for 9 years.  This position entails keeping the financial records for the church including paying the bills and keeping all pertinent records.  I also complete and file all yearly tax forms.  I report this financial information to the church body once a month at the business meeting.

I guess the Lord was asking me to fill this position because I was asked to take the position 3 times and kept turning it down.  Finally, I thought I should try to fill the treasury position and I have not had any trouble doing it.

One of my favorite Bible verses is John 3:16  "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life."

That said, I would like to invite anyone in the community that is looking for a church home to come and join us at Grand Prairie.
