Trunk or Treat is a gift to our community. It is a great opportunity for us to provide a safe place for children, interact briefly with parents, and share Jesus in a passive way through the use of biblically themed decorations. Trunk or Treat produces good will in the community, which is important in a time when public opinion of the church is skeptical. Plus this year it gives us an opportunity to invite the community to view the movie Home Run with us on November 3.
Your help is needed. It takes about 200 of us to set up, clean up, and host Trunk or Treat, so saying “Your help is needed,” is a huge understatement. More people came to Trunk or Treat last year than any other single event during the year. I am grateful that many people have committed to help with Trunk or Treat again this year. However, your help is needed.
- Pray now for God to use the gospel tract the children will receive to open families to his love.
- Decorate your “trunk” (whatever that may be), don a kid-friendly costume (no scary stuff), and have a blast as you interact with the crowd handing out candy.
- Thursday afternoon eat some pizza, help set up the area, and pray over the event.
- Help inside greeting people or outside with security.
Thursday, October 31, Trunk or Treat, there is a place for you. Commit now to help with this ActsOne8 Jerusalem ministry.
Sunday November 3 Home Run will be shown at First Baptist Church. Showtime is six o’clock in the evening. “Based on thousands of true stories, Home Run is a powerful reminder that with God, it’s never too late … freedom is possible.” The movie is rated PG13 due to some thematic material, however having seen the movie it contains nothing inappropriate. Invite your friends to a movie that is worth seeing.
