Scheduled to start at 5 pm, Trunk or Treat an annual activity where church folks decorate their cars, trunks or tailgates and give out candy and other treats to children who want an early and safe place to  get some treats.

These ladies always smile at fun events for children. Hope Murphy (l) is director of children’s ministries and Margaret Downs (r) is director of music. Charlotte Downs is in the middle.

Everyone is welcome. Children are encouraged to wear their costumes and and invite friends to join them as they go from car to car to scare or charm people for some candy.

Youth Director David Boudolf says youth should arrive around 4:30 to help set up before the fun begins at 5 pm.
