Church 115th Anniversary Celebration

We at First Baptist Port Tampa want to extend a warm thank you to everyone that joined us in celebrating our 115th year Anniversary today, November 20, 2016. We have a lot to be grateful for, we gained 4 new members today, had a great guest speaker Pastor Bobby Patton, which delivered his message “Living the Life of Prayer”, and to Jerry Hamilton for leading the music program. Also a very special thank you to the kitchen ladies who volunteered in making our fellowship dinner run smoothly.
