Annual Trunk or Treat Halloween Party

Our annual Trunk or Treat Halloween party is on Wednesday, October 24th. This celebration is open to all. We will have the parking area just south of the church blocked off beginning at 6:00pm. Trunk or Treating and indoor Halloween games will start at 6:30pm.

We will first have meal time in which all are invited to bring a Halloween themed dish-sign up here:

All ages are invited to wear Halloween costumes. Please keep any weapon parts and extremely scary or violent costumes at home. This is an event for all ages and we do not want to scare little ones or make anyone feel uncomfortable.

Trunk Hosts/Decorators NEEDED!! If you’d like to park your car in the city lot on the south side of the church this evening, please know that will be reserved for those decorating trunks for the event. If you’d like to host and decorate your trunk (or back of van or truck) please contact Nicole at
