Has your church ever had a booth at a state or county fair? When I was growing up, the Minnesota Baptist Association would set up a booth each year at the Minnesota State Fair, and my church would provide people to staff it on one of the days of the fair. I'm not sure why they stopped, but it probably had to do with either cost or difficulty finding people to man the booth. I can think of a few goals a church might have in mind when setting up a booth. Evangelism is one, of course. Name recognition for the church is another, but that one is better suited for a county fair than for a state fair. Also I think selling Biblical literature to edify believers would be a useful activity. On the other hand, does selling things make you more of a business than a ministry?
