They are active members of the Marion FLOCK. Debbie enjoys playing softball on the joint team with LaRue Methodist Church.
Debbie was raised in a Christian home and knew of the Lord from a young age, yet it wasn't until her late teen years that she recognized the need to submit herself to Christ and recognize Him personally as Savior and Lord. Her baptism followed in April of 2001. By God's grace, Debbie looks forward to continuing to grow with the church body in LaRue.

I started coming to LaRue Baptist Church at the invitation to attend their Vacation Bible School program in the fall of 1983. I wasn't particularly interested because I was dedicated to another church. My wife asked me if I would consider accompanying her to this program and I agreed.
I had gone to church for nearly twenty years and I was not prepared for what the Spirit did for me at LaRue Baptist Church. After hearing just one lesson, I realized that I had truly never heard the gospel according to scripture before. My own spirit soared and it didn't take me long to resign my position at our old church. I have been at LaRue Baptist Church ever since.
I have served as a Deacon at LaRue Baptist for so many years it is hard for me to number them.
