Bible Baptist Church in McKinney Texas

     Maureen and I visited Bible Baptist Church in McKinney Texas this morning. It is always a blessing to hear Pastor Bryan Spurgin preach.      Pastor Spurgin contacted me on Facebook a while back. We have been hosting Bible Baptist Church in McKinney Texas’s website for many years now and Pastor Spurgin wanted to make some updates. Since I had not heard back from him and I know he is a very busy man, I decided it would be a worthwhile trip to drop in and visit this friendly little church.      We had a brief visit with Pastor Bryan prior the service, and after a great expository message on Revelation 19, he and I had a brief opportunity to discuss what he wanted to try to accomplish with their website.      They have two domains and there are a couple of options, one of which is to use the second domain to build the new website and see how he likes it and then combine both of the domains once the work reaches completion (is a website ever really completed?).      I am also toying with the idea of building the content on my church demo website, but that will require transferring it all back over to the working website when it is all completed. A lot of work and a lot can go...
