Trunk Or Treat
I don’t know how to talk about this year’s Trunk or Treat without gushing about the success of the event. Last year, the Children’s and Outreach Committees volunteered to plan the event in conjunction with the Social Team, who has done such a wonderful job of creating and organizing Trunk or Treat in the past. The goal was to make Trunk or Treat an event large enough for the community to attend, and one in which our whole congregation could participate.
The Outreach Committee sent post cards to the community, and passed out flyers at the St. Matthew’s Area Chamber of Commerce Trick or Treat event at Brown Park. Their work brought in multiple children from around the community, who experienced the warmth and hospitality (not to mention - fun!) of our church family.
The Children’s Committee and Social Team decorated the Family Life Center, planned games, and made lots of fun treats for the families to enjoy. Our Wednesday night crowd proved their ability to be flexible, and ate chili in the FLC, while enjoying the sights of children in costumes and the sounds of their laughter and enjoyment.
Overall, this event was not just about growing younger populations, but bringing together all the age groups represented in the church. It ended up being a night in which we could all celebrate together as a church body, and everyone left with a smile on their face!
