A STATEMENT OF MY CHRISTIAN PILGRIMAGE as written by Tommy S. Tucker on 4/2/2010:

Mom & Dad had me with them in church with them as far back as I  remember.  I officially joined at age 10 to Bluff Park Baptist 4/1945 accepted Christ & Baptized at Dawson Baptist Church.  On Mother’s Day May 14, 1954 I, along with my Parents, Ernest & Lillian Tucker joined Shades Crest Baptist, at the 1st meeting thus being declared charter members.  The tremendous power of prayer of this church has always been an answer of needs in our Christian Fellowship have even a couple of miracles!   It has been a privilege to serve in many local and missionary work projects, from Mexico to New Hampshire and home church duties.
