Mark 11:22-24 (NIV)

“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."



Philippians 2:12-13 (NIV)

"Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose."



Matthew 9:35-38 (NIV)

"Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”



Colossians 3:23-24 (NIV)

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."



Matthew 10:16; Colossians 1:3-14 (NIV)

"“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves."

Colossians 1:3-14 (NIV)

"We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on our behalf, and who also told us of your love in the Spirit. For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."


Gerry McFarling

Music Minister

     I count it a privilege to minister using the gifts God has blessed me with in leading Worship through the music program at our Church. Together with a very talented group of musicians we strive to Glorify God through music.

     Music gives us the ability to expand our expression of Worship to God beyond mere spoken words. All through scripture we see Gods’ people singing their praises to Him and we follow their example. If I asked you to think about your favorite song, I imagine you could tell me the words. Music allows us to internalize Gods’ Word and bring it into all facets of our lives.

     Come Worship with us and “make a joyful noise unto the Lord”.

Nancy Nettles

Administrative Assistant

   I have been a member of Living Grace Baptist (West Greeley Baptist) since 1992. I have been working in the church office since May 2000. I consider myself the Chief Information Officer, Ministerial Support and sometimes the Comic Relief.


    I graduated from CSU in 1983 with a degree in technical journalism. I see how God has led me to this position; in high school my aptitude tests placed me high in business and administration (in spite of my lofty scientific ambitions). In college I produced the newsletter and worked in the office of the campus ministry I belonged to, and I was often teased about becoming a church secretary! God definitely had his plans for me to be here!

     I’ve been married to David Nettles since 1985; we have two daughters, Barbara and Debbie, both wonderful young women with a heart for Jesus and serving others. Besides working in the office I have served on many different committees, taught several different age groups, coordinated Vacation Bible School and worked with the Women’s Ministry of Living Grace.
