■‘In 1959 our church was renovated
and remodeled," he said, ‘‘and was
made into what we now-look upon as a
completely new church. The days after
we completed the renovation, I walked
through the church and noticed all of
the unused rooms and space. All of
those rooms that were pretty and
painted wore a!! locked up.
Arrangements were made whereby the
Department of Social services “pur
chased” space used at the First Baptist
Church for day care.
He also predicted that within 8-10
years there will be public day care
centers Just as there are now public
kindergartens. “Too many empty
school buildings are present today, left
that way because of the consolidation of
schools, etc. It hurts me every time I

which is not being used.” he em

“It then dawned upon me,” he said,
“to make the church wuat we call a
seven-days-a-week church, which every
church should be. I went to our Board of
Deacons and recommended that we

During the 1960’s. Dr, Turner said an
‘‘Industrial Revolution” hit Robeson
County because of the nujiber of
factories springing us here. Because of
the availability of jobs, parents needed
someone to keep their children while
they worked in the growing job market.
As a result, the First Baptist Church
Day Care Center grew rapidly. (Note: It
now has 57 children from 2-5 years old.
Each parent pays according to his or her
The First Baptist Church also takes
‘‘special children” at its center, and Dr.
Turner extolled Special Education as a
wide-open field for college students.
‘‘At our church we address ourselves to
these children’s special problems and
find this most enriching,” he said.
Reflecting on the growth of the Center,
Dr. Turner said: “I saw this ‘Industrial
Revolution’ as an opportunity for our
church to serve people. In so doing, we
were helping to provide them whatever
bles.sings or benefits there are in this
life or in after life.”
In discussing careers for PSU stu
dents. the minister pointed out, “Day
Care is one of the most filling and
re-filling and enjoyable careers. You
want to choose something in which you
can be happy and just love and enjoy. If
you are in a field you don’t like, stop!
Go to the registrar and drop it. Nothing
makes life, more meaningful than
helping those who can’t help them
