High School sweethearts from McEachern High School and married for 23 years, Matt and Shea Buehler have been in the Powder Springs area for most of their life. Matt’s family moved here when he was five whereas Shea’s extended family have deep roots in Cobb County.
Remaining in this area even after starting a family, Matt has been in Law Enforcement for 22 years, and is currently at Marietta Police Department. Shea worked as a teacher for both public and private schools and has been the director of preschool at Mount Paran Christian School for the past 13 years.
Matt and Shea have three daughters. Anna, 20, is active in her church Christ the King which is located on the campus of University of West Georgia in Carrollton. Suzy, 16, and Lily Belle, 15 attend Mount Paran Christian School where they enjoy playing sports and being active in various mentoring and service groups.
The Buehler family found their way to Midway Presbyterian and joined as members in March 2016 after searching for a scripturally based church with teaching and preaching that defies current social norms. They also were intentional about finding a church that unapologetically stands for Christian values. Looking for a traditional church service that offers Sunday School, a great youth group program with an in-depth study into the Bible (which the kids love), along with Bible study opportunities and Sunday night service, the Buehler family has found their church home.
The Buehler’s have three scriptures that would describe their reason for worshiping here at Midway Presbyterian Church:
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. (Romans 10:17)
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the Truth. (3 John 4:1)
And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” 29 Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12.28-31)
