Pastor Bobby Banks stops for a photo under the tree at the Bible Church of God on Seaboard Avenue. His church spearheaded the building of a new Youth Center, which will have an indoor gymnasium. The idea, Banks said, came to him from God.

Workers labor to get the steel frame of the building in place.

The sign in the ground at the Bible Church of God says it all. The Youth Center is located on the lot right next to the church, about an acre big.

The frame of the Youth Center is coming together. One day, children and people from the community will pack the house and play basketball.

Calvin Marion of CLM Learning Solutions poses for a photo by the sign in front of the Youth Center Bible Church of God with Pastor Bobby Banks. It was Banks' idea to build the center, with a gymnasium, that will give the children in the community a place to play basketball and hold community events, and he is getting a lot of community support.

New things are happening at 49 Seaboard Ave., in Lake Wales, right next to the Bible Church of God. An 85-by-100 square foot building — with a full-size basketball court, restrooms, concession stand and offices — is being built; the steel beams are already in place.

Pastor Bobby Banks of the church and Calvin Marion, of CLM Learning Solutions in Lake Wales, are excited about the new Youth Center being built.
