KIDZ CHOIR Presents :  Fact or Fiction Christmas Edition

December 7th

6:00 P.M.

Everyone is invited!


6:00 - 8:00
On Halloween night, we need volunteers to decorate your car trunk or truck bed and pass out candy to the kids in the community. Vehicles should be decorated in creative ways by their owners, and children will trick or treat from trunk to trunk in our church parking lot. Prizes will be given to the best and most creative trunks.
      If you can’t decorate a trunk, you may help provide candy to those decorating their trunks. There are two collection boxes for candy. One is in the Family Life Center and one at the front church entrance.
      A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board in the middle foyer adjacent to the auditorium and on the bulletin board in the Family Life Center hallway.
      Times and more information will be given as the date gets closer.
