A good “vibe” has been going around the church as more of our members encounter our new Welcome Center for the first time. I have heard so many good comments about the spaciousness and attractiveness of the new construction. Everyone agrees that this new space will allow us to put our best foot forward as new folk come our way in the months ahead.
The fall season is one of the most critical times for our church in terms of connecting with new people. People who have made transition to Tallahassee over the summer begin looking for a place of worship, and fortunately, First Baptist Church is one of the places they look first.
In anticipation of their arrival, our Property Committee has scheduled our semiannual “Love First” workday for this coming Saturday, August 20. Not to be confused with our day of community service that will happen later in the fall, this “Love First” project gives us a chance to address important needs around the church and to enjoy a time of fellowship with one another as we do so.
The Property Committee has come up with a number of items that need our attention. We will start the morning in our new Welcome Center at 8:30 AM with a devotional time. The coffee will be ready, and once we have our time of reflection and prayer, we’ll get to work. The Property Committee anticipates that we’ll be able to address the list by midday.
That assumes, of course, that we’ll have a good turnout, which I believe we will. The sense of pride and appreciation for what God has given us in the way of ministry facilities is evident all around. This day will allow us the privilege of giving elbow grease to our gratitude and put our campus in a condition that will ready us for what I believe will be a most exciting fall season.
