February 28

Get ready for one of our biggest community events of the year!  Trunk-Or-Treat is on Saturday, October 30 from 1:00-3:00 PM.  Come join us for an afternoon of hayrides, inflatables, decorated trunks, and, of course, CANDY!  It is fun for the whole family.  Everyone is encouraged to wear their costumes, but nothing scary.  (For example, please do not dress as witches, ghosts, zombies, skeletons, etc.)  Invite your friends and family to join you.

Trunk-Or-Treat has two missions.  First, we want to give the children of our church and the Greater Lafayette Community a fun, safe, and scare free alternative to Halloween.  Second, it is an outreach to the community as we give everyone invitations to church, hand out pamphlets about our Impact Sports Ministry, advertise our Christmas Eve service, and show the love of Jesus one on one.

For Trunk-Or-Treat to be a success, we need everyone’s help.  We need lots of people to host a trunk by having enough candy or treats for 500-800 kids, decorating your trunk, and being willing to commit to staying the entire time.  Everyone hosting a trunk needs to be parked no later than 12:30 through 3:00.  We do not want any vehicles moving in the event area while children are present.  If you can't host a trunk, but would like to help out, we need folks to help set up, tear down, and run the hayride and inflatables.  There is a sign-up sheet in the lobby.  Feel free to contact Pastor Eric with your questions by phone (765-430-0072) or email (eric.schneider@daytonumc.org). Thank you in advance for all of your help.
