Dinner & Trunk-or-Treat | October 27th, Dinner at 5:30pm and Event begins at 6pm!
Want to help us with this fun event? Anyone from the congregation, all ages, are invited to bring their automobile “trunks” and treats so that children can come and safely “trick or treat” in our church parking lot. You can make your non-scary decorating as simple or as elaborate as you like, however, there will be a contest!  Dress up, decorate your cars and then enjoy handing out treats to the little ones from our church and community.  Join us for this fun multi-generational event.  You do not need to have small children to participate!!
