"I sensed the Holy Spirit 
working on me

For years I resisted going to church. I went kicking and screaming with my wife Nancy, who finally dragged me here. I have always believed in Jesus but didn’t have a relationship with Him in my heart. My church experience at StoneRidge (then “Temple Baptist”) was so different from my childhood experience of going to the Catholic church with my Nan. At SRF, I sat with my sister who liked to sit close to the front and started to enjoy the messages. I felt that I was actually learning. It was during a message from the pastor that I sensed the Holy Spirit working on me. It was then that I accepted Christ as my Savior.

Shortly after, I started to get to know more people in the church. They encouraged me to volunteer in production using the skills that I had learned. It's now been about 22 years since I was first exposed to SRF and I still love volunteering and love the relationship that I have with my church family. I’m excited to be part of this journey! Praise God, my life has not been the same since.

A favorite Bible verse for me is: Proverbs 3: 5-6 "Trust in LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."
