Description

The Girls' Auxiliary (GA) at the First Baptist Church of Oviedo. The GA was officially founded in 1913 as a Baptist organization for young girls. The First Baptist Church of Oviedo was founded in 1869, with its first service led by Reverend W. G. Powell on the property of W. H. Luther, located along Lake Jessup Avenue. The first church building was made of wood and was located on what was the property of Lois Ruddell at the time that this book was written. The old building served the church until 1887, later became the house of the Beasley family, and was finally torn down. A new wooden church building was erected in 1887 and remained in use until 1926. The brick church building constructed later on is still in use by CrossLife Church.
