Pea Ridge Baptist hosts annual bow shoot for missions

Published 8:00 pm Thursday, August 18, 2016

Pea Ridge Baptist Church in Mill Spring will host its third annual bow shoot for missions on Saturday, Aug. 27. The church has hosted two prior successful bow shoots in which all proceeds were donated to help fund Alaska mission trips taken by Pea Ridge members.

This year, instead of all proceeds going to a future Alaska mission trip, all proceeds will go to a general missions fund for future mission purposes. Pea Ridge Baptist has taken two mission trips to Nome, Alaska, serving during the Iditarod race through various opportunities with the goal to show the love of Jesus Christ to the people of Alaska.

The church has also taken two different teams to Jacmel, Haiti to serve the House of Abraham orphanage. Alaska and Haiti are only two places where there is a deep need for the love of Jesus. Pea Ridge Baptist Church has a heart for missions and it shows through local community events hosted by the church, such as the bow shoot, along with the domestic and international mission trips taken thus far.

Bow shoot registration will begin at 8 a.m., and the shooting will last from 8 to 3 p.m. There is a fee for the 20-target bow shoot plus a tough man shot will also be offered. The winner will take half of the pull. Prizes will be offered for first, second and third place. Coffee will be available in the morning for participants for a small donation. Hot dogs, chips, drinks and ice cream will be served for reasonable prices as well.

This year, not only do we desire to reach archery lovers but also their families. Pea Ridge will have two bounce houses on site and a dunking booth, all free of charge. There is also a playground and children can play, as long as they are supervised, while they wait for the participants to finish the shoot.

Bow shoot participants, bring your family and come ready for a great event to support missions. If you have any questions, please contact Nicolette Lathan at 704- 488-7526 or Jamie Kilgore at 828-817-0994.
