Larry & Holly
Holly and I have a deep love for God and His word. Our desire is to serve God and the church, which is the bride of Christ alongside you, the members at Creekside. We love the Creekside church and we believe this church has so much potential to reach out and serve this community. The apostle Peter expresses the sentiments of our hearts in 1Peter 1:8-9: "Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls."
Creekside is a friendly, loving, and caring family. I'm proud to call you my brothers and sisters. I know your desire to seek Jesus and I can see Him living and working in so many. I'm excited to seek what God has planned for us and see how He is going to use us here at Creekside to bring Him glory.

Bonnie & Stan
Stan and Bonnie grew up in Illinois farm country, and have known each other for most of their lives. They were high school sweethearts, and were married in 1970. In 1971, Stan began a long career in the airline industry. That fast paced, ever changing, people oriented business was his training ground. He retired after 33 years, having served in various leadership roles at Chicago O’hare, DFW, and El Paso. He has a passion for photography, and enjoys writing. Bonnie has been an administrator for corporate executives for most of her career life. She is a people person, the one who works behind the scenes, the one who connects the dots to get the job done. Her family and her faith though, remain at her center. Bonnie and Stan have two children, and six grandchildren. They love their family, and fully appreciate God’s gift of being “Mama and Papa”.
Stan and Bonnie love their Creekside family, too. Having now been at Creekside for nearly 10 years, Stan says: “I love our Creekside family. And when I say family, I mean that. I love that we can share in our love for Jesus together. I love that we can celebrate together. I love that when we are hurting, we rush to each other’s side. I love that we can sing praises together, pray together, study together, laugh together, cry together, commune together…..After all, isn’t that what families do?”

I am interested in people serving our great God. My God is the focus that all of us should be centered on with all our speech and actions. We will be with him in eternity. But the way we live now, determines where we will spend eternity. We need to acknowledge him. We need to love and care for one another. If one of us falls. We need to lift them up. As an elder, I want to show grace to others, like God shows grace to us!!! Be a Christian! Model being a Christian for others. God knows, who you are and what you are. You cannot hide from him! God bless us all.
"Feed and shepherd God's flock--His church, purchased with His own blood--over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you as elders."
