Pete and Kathy were high school sweethearts and married in 1996. They both attended college locally; however Pete decided to leave college early to focus building a career.

Several years later God extended His saving hand of grace to their dear son Simon.  Pete accepted the call to the office of deacon in 2017, where he and his family joyfully serve the body of Christ.  

 Joe Hernandez

God brought Margie, Leah and I to SGBC after listening to the AM radio program for many months. After visiting on Wednesday and Sunday services and hearing the preaching and teaching of God’s word (and the music) we knew this is where God wanted us. Margie and I have 5 beautiful kids and 1 grandchild. I love playing sports, biking, racquetball, basketball, and hiking, but my love is music. I love ministering with guitar singing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs and I love leading congregational singing. We are from Phoenix, AZ, born and raised and I am honored to serve here at SGBC.
