Trunk or Treat

Everyone is invited to Trunk or Treat on Friday, October 25, 5:30-7 p.m. Bring your car, costume, and candy to give out to the children as they go from car trunk to car trunk. Hot dogs and drinks will be provided. After Trunk or Treat, plan to stay for Spooky Movies in the Patch. We are now collecting candy bags (no nuts) for Trunk or Treat in locations all around the church! We had a amazing turn out of both church and neighbors last year, so let's make sure we have enough for all. Please, no scary trunks or costumes as this is an event for children in our community.
