Trunk ‘n Treat Today!

The candy has been collected, the trunks decorated, and the day has arrived for our annual Trunk ‘n Treat! Come and bring your neighbors to celebrate the fall season with candy, hotdogs, Kona ice, bounce houses, games and more, tonight from 5-7 PM. 
We are confident that this will be a fun evening, rain or shine! We will move the event inside the ARK in case of bad weather.
Operation Christmas Child
It is time again for Operation Christmas Child! Our 5th and 6th graders have been hard at work assembling 400 boxes. 
Every year, people prayerfully fill shoeboxes with toys, school supplies, and personal care items for children in need around the world.
These special boxes are joyfully received by boys and girls from 2-14 years old, often as their first gift ever! Pick up a shoebox this Sunday, and let’s see what God will do this year as we seek to bring Him glory through this project.  Please return your filled boxes by November 19.
