Wow, what a great finish to we had to our Fishers of Men Missions Conference 2012! On Saturday, October 13th, Goffstown had its annual Pumpkin Regatta. For the last couple of years, Cornerstone Baptist Church has hosted a booth at the Regatta. To us, worldwide missions includes reaching out to our own community. We had a great location on the town common for our booth this year. We set up several carnival-like games for children to play complete with toy prizes to give away. The parents and grandparents were thrilled to have something for their kids to do that was free! It afforded us the opportunity to get our name out there and give away hundreds of church invitations. Our missionaries had lots of fun working the booth, handing out tracts, and then just spending time enjoying the giant pumpkins and the Regatta. We met many wonderful folks not only from Goffstown, but also the greater Manchester area. It was a great way to get the Gospel out and to let people know there is a church in their community that cares!
When the Regatta was done and the booth packed up, we headed over to the church for our Missions Banquet, where our theme was International Soup and Sandwich Night! Church folks prepared delicious soups and sandwiches from around the world. Everything was absolutely delicious! After we ate, Josh Foote brought us a brief message from God’s Word to encourage us. It was a great way to finish the day!
