  • Solon Home Days Thank You!

    THANK YOU so much to those who helped make our booth at the 2018 Solon Home Days festival a success! God provided sunny weather, lots of Plinko was played and candy and balloons given away. Almost 500 Community Day invitation cards were distributed and more than 100 One Year New Testaments were picked up from our table!

    Our booth at Solon Home Days is one of just a couple of times each year that we as a church do an outreach in the community rather than asking the community to come to us. Thank you for being a friendly representative of Parkside to those you met during your shift at the booth. Please pray that those who picked up Bibles will read them and that many people who were invited to Community Day will come.

    Our staff photographer, Julie Hahn, was out taking pictures during the festival. You can see her photos on our website here.

    The books are used in two ways: 1) They are given to children in tutoring programs at the beginning of the school year to take home and keep; and, 2) BHITC offers "Little Free Library Carts" at our tutoring locations where students can borrow books to read during tutoring and also to take home and return.
