Growing up in Greenville, Texas, Bart Millard suffers physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father, Arthur. When Arthur becomes terminally ill, he finds redemption by embracing his faith and rediscovering his love for his son. Years later, Bart's troubled childhood and mended relationship with his dad inspires him to write the hit song "I Can Only Imagine" as singer of the Christian band Mercy Me.

Church Landscaping Project
The Parish has contracted with the Belknap Landscape Company to repair the front entryway of the church to include the steps, brick patio under the portico and the gap between the patio and walkway.
This project is underway and completion of the project is weather dependent. The landscaping will be completed in the spring.
