Carroll McGruder (December 25, 1946 - September 14, 2015) and Priscilla McGruder ( October 25, 1948 - April 29, 2010) pastored the United Pentecostal Church in Kennett, MO for twenty-five years. The first time I visited their church was also the first time I heard Bro Larry Carter play and sing Sunday School Girl. They were made Bishop on February 25, 2006 and Rev. Don Sheerin became pastor.
Carroll Lester McGruder was born in Holcomb, MO to Lester Hendrix and Fannie Beatrice (McCool). He married Priscilla Elaine McDonald on June 1, 1976. They had three children: Eric, Shawnee, and Holly.
2013 Bro McGruder won songwriter of the year.
When there's no place to go, you think no one knows, what you're going through.
When you've done all you can, you're exhausted my friend, and there's nothing else left you
When life overwhelms you, or someone betrays you, you feel like nobody cares,
There's still one place I know, when there's no place to go, I can go to the Master in
I can go to the Master, He always listens, He welcomes my pleas because He cares about
me, He won't overlook my petition.
He's standing above, and He's watching in love, He's waiting my burdens to bear,
He's got time for you, and a place for me too, I can go to the Master in prayer.
When the world turns on me, I'm so blind I can't see, doubts are everywhere.
When friends turn me down, and my spirit is bound, I can't rise above all my fears.
When pain won't release me, there's no peace within me, I'm feeling like life isn't fair,
When my night's sleep is lost, and I've turned and I've tossed, I can go to the Master in
(Chorus)... (End)If you're life's a dead end, I can still recommend, you can go to the Master in prayer. The McGruders have so many wonderful songs here are a few of them: Heaven's Point of View Stand on the Word Most of All I'm Going Home with Jesus
I was not able to find Sis McGruder video singing this song herself, but I am working on it. Until then this is a recording by Karen Wheaton.
Please feel free to contact me if you happen to have Sis McGruder singing this song or would like to add to the information provided. There is a lot of information on the two wonderful people in many places.
Thanks for stopping by. God Bless.
