Stony Plain Trade Fair Hosts Parkland Church Booth

This last April saw the Parkland (Spruce Grove & Stony Plain) Church participating in the local Stony Plain Trade Fair with a booth table laden with books, magazines, DVDs, etc. A draw for a couple of DVDs was very popular as was a white prayer sheet on which people could write the first names of people they wanted special prayer for. Everyone who passed by was given an envelope with a letter from the church, a mini Signs magazine, application forms etc. Especially popular were engraved pens advertising the church and handmade bookmarks with Bible verses and attractive pictures. It was indeed a great way to meet people without knocking on doors - they were coming to us! We plan to make this an annual event.
