Trunks and Treats
On Halloween night, come join us for our annual celebration of All Saints Eve. Church members dress in Biblical costumes, and outfit their cars as well, to hand out goodies to the children of the area. There is a tent with hotdogs, nachos and lemonade for both the kids and their parents - and who knows - there may even be a band. Check with the church for the exact times.
