Thank You Tracy Roby & the People of Overland Park Baptist 

Pastor Roby, the staff, and their people went above and beyond for this meeting. Every person who attended was greeted with a smile and a handshake at the door before every service. The barbecue dinner on Monday night and the taco feast on Tuesday were outstanding!  It was a blessing to be served by the wonderful people of this great church.  It was obvious that they were there with a heartfelt goal to encourage each one of us.  We are all so grateful!
