Halloween Family Fun

Sunday. October 28

Families, plan to join us on October 28 as we celebrate some Halloween fun! Children are welcome to wear their fun (not scary) costumes to church. Middle and high school youth will create a spooky haunted house with Rev. Elizabeth. Immediately after church, we’ll gather in the downstairs classroom for arts and crafts, apple bobbing, pumpkin painting, and general merriment! Please bring a light snack to share; candy and other sweet treats provided.
