TRUNK or TREAT

​​"We exist to

​connect people to

Jesus Christ!"


         On Tuesday, October 31, our church will hold its 6th Annual Trunk or Treat event. Starting at 5:00PM that evening, church members will have their cars parked along the edges of 3rd Street outside the church…trunks open! The children of the community will be invited to come and “trick or treat” among our church members. Along with candy and warm greetings, they will receive a handout that explains our Youth and Children’s Ministries.) In addition, the United Methodist Men will again be offering FREE hot dogs and bottled water to everyone!


    Many churches struggle with participating in Halloween-related events and we understand that. BUT…it seems to us that the community is going to observe Halloween regardless of what the church does. Therefore, we have a choice to make: we can refuse to be involved and unconsciously widen the gap between the Church and the community. OR…we can choose to be involved and do so in such a way that the community sees us a willing partner.

    So on Halloween night, we put our best foot forward, invite the community into “our world” and have a GREAT time doing it! Join us!!
