Beaverton Parking Lot Sale Brings Blessings

September 22, 2015 | Amber Alekel

For two years, the Beaverton Church has hosted an annual parking lot sale for the local community. On Sunday, June 14, church members and community members alike occupied spaces in the Beaverton Church parking lot and sold what they no longer needed. The Pathfinder group was also able to get in on the fun and raise money for their activities by hosting their own booth as well as making smoothies. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful day and the chance to meet neighbors and make new friends. 

This year, the parking lot sale was truly blessed. The church ministry department worked hard to collect new and used books to give away during the sale. Dozen of Christian books for children, 13 free Bibles and 76 new Christian books for adults were given away to community members in just one day.

Hundreds of people passed through the church parking lot during the sale and were greeted by parking volunteers and other members of the Beaverton Church. One of the newer church members was moved to donate all the money earned that day to the church's India missions. Many blessings were found, and chances for prayer abounded. The parking lot sale, in just two short years, has become an event that is eagerly anticipated by church members and neighbors alike.
