Unique Church Service With a unique approach to evan gelism, the Trinity Baptist Church of Indio, California, recently main tained a booth in the nationally- known Riverside County Date Festi val. Trinity pastor, the Rev. Frank Mercer, a, graduate of Biola, stated, “We felt that the church should have a means of giving a witness to the thousands of people who visited the Festival. We took our ‘cue’ from the various Christian pavilions at the New York World’s Fair. After much prayer and consideration (and ap proximately 1,000 v o l un t e e r man hours), the project was completed. We felt the response was most en couraging with more than 300,000 people attending the Festival, and many of them viewing our presenta tion.” The church committee selected two color films, “World’s Fair Encoun ter” from Billy Graham, and “ City of the Bees,” produced by Moody Institute of Science. The presenta tions were continuous. Church’s Festival booth The church sponsors a daily radio program entitled, “ Morning Chimes.” The booth appropriately carried this title. The Fair officials presented the booth a “ special award” ribbon as a result of their efforts during the 11- day exposition. Many Christians ex pressed confidence for witnessing they received as a result of the Church’s ministry. The booth was 20 x 40 feet and was covered by a canvas tent. Seats were set up with an aisle down the middle. A garden display was mounted at the front, using plants, colored rocks, tan bark, artificial flowers and lights. Wooden clocks with movable hands were mounted outside the tent. There was one for each film indicating times for next showings. Descriptive mimeo graphed flyers were handed out to those passing by. The church anticipates undertak ing a similar project next year. Any churches interested in further infor mation for similar projects for their own area, are invited to contact Rev. Mr. Mercer. His church has set up a continuing committee to assist in future projects.
