Greetings from your St. John's Board of Outreach & Evangelism!
As you all have probably heard about our "All Hallows Eve Chili & Hot Dog Supper" AND "Trunk or Treat" being held on Wednesday evening, October 31st at St. John's, we are asking for your help by donating any kind of bagged Halloween candy so we can assemble 160 bags of "treats" for our supper attendees!
Our Little Lambs Pre-School will be outside for the Trunk or Treat for the kids to visit as well.
We would also like to offer the little treat bags to those attending the chili and hot dog supper inside so it would really help if you all could bring some bags of candy to church the next 3 Saturdays/Sundays when you come to worship.
We plan to assemble the bags on Monday, October 29th, so we need to have all the candy donations by no later than Sunday Oct. 28th.
We will put a box for the candy collection in the narthex marked "ALL HALLOWS EVE SUPPER".
Our outreach ministry has helped many this year and being the end of the budget year, we will appreciate your help with the expenses of this event.
Thank you so much for your help in reaching out to the kids in our community to teach them more about Christ and how Halloween began in the first place and to fill their little tummies with goodies along with their hot dogs!
***Don't forget too that there is a pumpkin carving/decorating contest that night. 3 prize ribbons will be awarded for carved pumpkins that are brought to church ON Wed. Oct. 31 by 4 PM. The will be for: 1. The funniest 2. The scariest 3. The best
They will be used for centerpieces on the dinner tables!! You may take your pumpkins home with you after the event ends at 8 PM.
