    Take a moment to prepare

    your heart for worship

    The great people of the earth today are the people who pray! I do not mean those who talk about prayer; nor those who say they believe in prayer; nor those who explain prayer; but I mean those who actually take the time to pray. They have not time. It must be taken from something else. That something else is important, very important and pressing, but still, less important and pressing than prayer.

    S. D. Gordon

    David Fulk joined 2BC in 1985 while a student at William Jewell. He is director of philanthropic giving at KCUR 89.3. David and his wife, Carolyn, have a son, Davis. Abigail Hilke is a fifth grader at Warren Hills and is the daughter of Jill and Pat Hilke. Brandon Greason has been attending Second since returning to Liberty in 2000 to attend William Jewell College. He is employed with the North Kansas City School District. Greg Greason is adjusting to a new lifestyle having a newly retired wife with lots of ideas that involve carpentry, landscaping, and assorted other DIY projects! The majority of his day is spent in service to children of the North Kansas City School district where he is a bus driver. In addition, he tries very hard to keep up with grandsons - Tate and Hayes. Jessica Greason married Brandon in 2007 and has been active at Second Baptist since their marriage. They are parents of four-year old Tate and 22-month old Hayes. Linda Greason recently retired after a 36 year career in public education, Linda is now enjoying a bit of free time for hobbies such as cross stitching and gardening.

However, the highlight of her retirement comes on Wednesdays when she is babysitting Tate and Hayes Greason - grandsons extraordinaire! Gary Smith joined Second in 1995. He and Debra have three children: Amanda, Matthew and Emily. He has worked in the telecommunications industry for 25 years. He previously taught Middle School Sunday School and was a part of the 2BC radio ministry for 11 years


    Shifting gears

    When I was 15 years old, my dad taught me how to drive a stick shift. This involves more than moving the stick to the 1, 2, 3, or 4 position

    when you want the vehicle to go faster. Dad took me to the park and

    showed me how to drive the hills, which requires down shifting. He

    showed me how to keep the engine from stalling out while stopped on

    an incline. And, of cour
