Please join us on Sunday, October 29, 2017 at 9am, for a Halloween Gathering in the fellowship hall. Children will be able to wear their costumes and enjoy the party with games, activities, refreshments and fun. Following Sunday School we will meet in the Sanctuary for Worship. During the children’s time Pastor Rick will bless the children and their costumes!
Trunk or Treat – Trunk or Treat will be held on October 29 immediately following the worship service. Members of the congregation may participate by handing out goodies as kids go “trick or treating” from car to car in our parking lot. This provides a safe and secure environment for the children as they follow this Halloween tradition! This event is open to the community. Please be sure as you leave the parking lot to be aware of the children and parents walking around! Thank you!

You have a couple of options for registration this year, you can pick up your registration forms and map to follow from Kathy or you can register online. You can gather your donations and turn them in on Sunday, October 15 or keep them to collect more. When arriving for the walk, please bring the top copy of your registration form so they have an idea of how many people have walked.
