I am excited about the near completion of the Raymond Miles Youth Building at First Baptist Church.

Because of your faithful giving this building and its furnishings were all done debt free. Thank you to all who have given, pledged and continue to give to this ministry effort. The date and time of the dedication service will be announced shortly. It is not too late to join in the MY HOPE WITH BILLY GRAHAM effort in November. Training has begun but you can easily catch up and be part of a national effort to bring the message of salvation to every home in the USA. Join us this Sunday evening at 5:30 for our next session. We meet upstairs in the Youth Room of the Shell Annex. It is finally here! The movie, BROTHERS KEEPER, will debut the first of November and will be showing in Tallahassee at the Tallahassee Mall. Would you be interested in going on the bus and vans as a group? As the debut draws near we will have more information about times and dates. I have heard a lot of talk, and been told of talk, around the church concerning various issues. What I have not heard is talk of sharing the Gospel, our purpose as a church to reach the lost, and the work and leadership of the Holy Spirit. These are the things I want to talk about. These are the things I want to hear. I look forward to seeing you this Sunday. Paul
