The 13th Annual Outdoor Sportsman event held Saturday offered something fun for everyone.

Held at Camp Arrowhead in Marshfield, the event had games, free Bibles, entertainment and a meal of pulled pork and chips. Churches around Webster County provided snacks, refreshments and information to participants. There was also archery ranges for kids and adults.

"This is my first time at the Outdoor Sportsman event," said Mikel Flanders, Heart of the Ozarks director for Fellowship of Christian Athletes. "We were invited to come and set up a table here to inform people about the outdoor activities we’ll be including in the FCA, which usually focuses on football and other sports."

Titus II Ministry, which is associated with the Henderson Baptist Church in Rogersville, showed participants how to make their own tomahawks or dinner bells, while sharing the gospel with them. The group bases its ministry name on Titus 2:11, which says, “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men."

At noon, there was live music, performed by the Marshfield First Baptist Church praise team, followed by a message. Prizes were given away shortly after that. The 13th Annual Outdoor Sportsman event was organized by the Webster County Baptist Association, which partners with 24 Southern Baptist churches in the Webster County area.
