Parkway hosts annual wildgame supper
HOUSTON – There is only one thing better than hunting Mississippi woods and that is eating what comes out of them.
Parkway Baptist Church hosted its Annual Wildgame Supper Saturday night with more than 130 men and boys in attendance to enjoy the bounty of the hunting and fishing season, hear an inspirational message from Evan Edwards and take home two tables full of door prizes.
“So many people work and help put this on and that’s what makes this successful,” said John Ellison, Chairman of Parkway Brotherhood. “We have businesses in the community who help us with door prizes and men who own businesses in our church. Everybody pitches in to make this happen.”
Ellison said attendees are urged to bring their favorite game dish and to bring a friend.
“This year we cooked 30-pound of fish and a whole lot of hush puppies and french fries,” said Ellison. “No one ever goes home hungry.”
The meal was rounded out with ice tea and a table full of banana pudding, cookies, cakes and pies.
The speaker for Saturday’s event was handicapped hunter Evan Edwards, of Meridian. Edwards broke his neck in a high school football accident and is a quadriplegic.
Edwards, who can not stand up, urged men to stand up in their church and in their community. He used the Biblical story of David and Goliath as his example and pointed out men need to have the right attitude, faith and then take action.
“We need to focus on the side of our God and not the size of our problem,” said Edwards.
“Being a male is a matter of birth,” he added. “Being a man is a matter of choice. It’s time we stand up and be the Christian men Christ has called us to be.”
The evening ended with Parkway Baptist Church Pastor Randy Rinehart giving away door-prizes ranging from gift cards and custom-made knives to shop tools and flashlights.
As always, Saturday’s supper was free and open to the public.
