Got supper in the sights
The food will be plentiful but the fellowship is the key ingredient in the annual Wild Game Supper sponsored by the Brotherhood of Parkway Baptist Church in Houston.
The event, set for Jan. 25 in the Family Life Center of the church, originated well over 10 years ago and offers men and boys an opportunity to join together over a hunter’s meal to reconnect with old friends and make new ones.
“Every year, we have a group from New Albany and Pontotoc come,” said Dr. Randy Rinehart, pastor of Parkway, adding that the dinner has seen guests from Eupora join in the fun as well.
The dinner is comprised of wild game dishes that local and area men have prepared, but Rinehart said it isn’t necessary to provide a dish to attend.
“It’s covered dish and we encourage new visitors to bring something, but don’t let that stop you from coming anyway,” Rinehart said.
The church administration has sent out letters of invitation to those who have attended in the past and signed the guest list and newcomers are welcome to join in the buffet-style meal.
“We have a lot of deer, because that’s what most people around here hunt, and we have it fixed all kinds of different ways,” Rinehart said. “But we’ve had squirrel and rabbit and I think moose and elk.”
Sharing good news
Guest speaker for the dinner will be Chickasaw County native, Terry Rhodes, pastor of Pheba Baptist Church for the past 13 years.
“I’m just simply known by most folks here as Ruth and Boozie’s boy,” Rhodes said. “I will bring a simple address about wild game actually mentioned in the Bible.”
