ARKANSAS BAPTISTS attending the annual convention meeting Oct. 30-31 in Cabot may choose to have their caricature drawn and register to win an iPad by visiting the Arkansas Baptist News (ABN) exhibit.
“In addition to providing extensive coverage of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention Annual Meeting, we would like to invite messengers to visit us, the staff of the ABN,” said Tim Yarbrough, editor. “In addition to signing up for a free, three-month subscription for the digital edition and for our iPad giveaway, ABN cartoonist Gary Thomas will hand draw caricatures of messengers.”
A new feature at this year’s exhibit will be the distribution of the free Arkansas Christian Parent magazine, said Yarbrough.
“We are so excited to be a part of producing Arkansas Christian Parent,” he said. “The magazine is a great resource for churches and their members, as well as designed to be used as an outreach tool. We encourage churches to place them strategically at local businesses and at work, as well as use them during church visitation.”
Churches are asked to come to the annual meeting prepared to pick up the number of magazines they want to distribute.
“Some churches may want as few as 25; other churches may want a couple hundred magazines. The key is letting us know prior to the meeting in Cabot so we will have enough on hand to send home with them,” said Yarbrough.
To be eligible to win the iPad, attendees must visit the ABN booth in the exhibit hall in person where they will receive an official form. Entrants must be an active member of an Arkansas Baptist church. When signing up for the iPad giveaway, entrants will automatically be signed up to receive a free, three-month subscription to the digital edition of the ABN.
