• Bro. Keith Weldon sleeps all night in a box outside the church!!!

Bro. Keith challenged Parksville Baptist with meeting a $500 goal for World Hunger. If the church reached the $500 goal, he would sleep in a box all night. Well, the church met the goal and he did sleep in a box all night long but it wasn’t what most of us expected. The box had a mattress, TV, food and drinks and many other conveniences. However, it was not an easy night for Bro. Keith because the security light kept coming on all night long. Bro. Keith was sure to catch the person walking under the light but finally figured out it was the dog. There is a lot to be learned from this situation. Bro. Keith is true to his word! He loves the Lord and loves to have fun serving Him. We should all be thankful for God’s blessings and be willing to give back and help others.

Women Mission Union (WMU): All women of Parksville Baptist Church are encouraged to meet the second Tuesday of each month at the church at 7pm to study missions around the world and in the United States. Many local mission projects are supported by the WMU. One such project is the Mile of Pennies project. Everyone is encouraged to bring pennies! Parksville Baptist is collecting a ‘mile’ of pennies ($844.80) to provide needed resources to the children at the Sunrise Children’s Home. Save your pennies and place in jugs provided at various locations in the church.

Missions Trips: Parksville Baptist members have in the past served on mission trips to New Orleans, Louisiana and Eastern Kentucky for the past several years. This year a group of people will be serving the mission field in Nicaguara, Central America. Anyone interested in serving on this trip should contact Bro. Keith Weldon at 238-7004.
