September 10 Young at Heart Meeting

As a spinoff from our “show and tell” entertainment at YAH several months ago, many members indicated they would like more meetings similar to it. A specific request was to have “long time” members share the history of First Baptist Church of Norfolk. Several members who were actively involved at that time will give small glimpses into the history of our church prior to the fire at Westover and Moran in 1970 and the years that followed as we migrated to the current location.
Topics will include insight from several members covering:

  • Childhood Experiences
  • Youth Experiences
  • The Fire of 1970 and our 4-year journey in the wilderness including:
    • Meeting at Multiple Sunday Morning locations including Robert E. Lee & Lake Taylor School
    • Sunday Night Services and Wednesday Night Dinners & Prayer Meetings at Temple Baptist Church Development of a Bus Ministry
    • Obtaining the Land at 312 Kempsville Rd.
    • The Building of our Facility at 312 Kempsville Rd.
  • Other memorable experiences as time permits
