Phillip Hays

We have a grand
(sweet) opportunity!

It's actually in the form of something that is quite common these days. It's called Trunk or Treat. The idea is for several of us to bring our vehicles to the church parking lot on Halloween night from 6:00 — 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 31, stocked with lots of candy and goodies! We plan to invite families from our neighborhood to bring their kids "trick or treating" here in a safe, Christ-centered environment.

Our purpose for this event is to share the love of Christ through Bible verses/church information given out t o kids and families at each "trunk", and to encourage the church family and their guests to positive service in God's kingdom! Think of it! Your invitation to a co-worker or neighbor to help in this good project might just be the catalyst for them to consider Christ and His Church!

This free event will be designed as an outreach to local families. Of course, as a church family, we'd like to avoid decorations/costumes that display witches, demons, and the grotesque. However, no one will be turned away because of their costume unless it's blatantly/purposely inappropriate.

Here's the plan, and here is what/who we need to make this evening a success:

● Candy will be collected at the church October 5th through October 29th

● We need someone to be in charge of the candy collection and to set up a table, decorate, advertise, and promote the candy collection.

● Each "trunk" should be decorated and stocked with candy and Bible card handouts. Those participating are encouraged (not required) to dress as a Bible character and briefly share who they are. We are looking for a dozen cars/trunks. We can be creative with classic cars, truck beds, hay wagons, bicycles, farm equipment, etc. Those bringing their "trunk" should also provide some candy.

● The church will provide hot dogs, Kool-Aid, hot cider, and hot chocolate. Corporate sponsors to donate these items might be a possibility. We need three people to be in charge of serving food, set u p, and clean up.

● We plan to rent one "bounce house." We also would like 2-3 simple carnival games.

● We need a crew to register families as they come and someone to decorate the registration table. The church will need help parking cars, too. This team should come up with a layout/design for all the elements of the evening.

● Publicity Crew: We need a team of 2-3 persons to create and hang posters. We could also use door hangers and postcards. Perhaps ads in the newspaper! The church website and marquee sign will also advertise the event.

We already met once on Sunday, September 28th. Our next meeting is scheduled for Sunday, October 12th , after the morning worship service. We'd like everyone to join in the work of the Lord in this rather creative fashion!

Don't forget that October is BREAKING 100 month! Let's ask the Lord to give us an average of 100 people each Sunday in October! It will take the power of God and all of u s doing our best to attend each Sunday morning service!

Looking forward together in Christ,

Phil
