We have a grand
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
from our neighborhood to bring their kids "trick or
in a safe, Christ-centered environment.
Our purpose for this event is to share the love of
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
This free event will be designed as an outreach to
families. Of course, as a church family, we'd like
decorations/costumes that display witches, demons,
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
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
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
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,
