KIDZ CHOIR Presents :  Fact or Fiction Christmas Edition

December 7th

6:00 P.M.

Everyone is invited!


6:00 - 8:00
On Halloween night, this Friday 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. There are two collection boxes for candy — one 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.
      The hours for Trunk or Treat are 6:00-8:00. Please have cars set up and ready by 5:30. Their spot will be marked. 

On Saturday, November 8, young men 10-18 are invited to Mike Comer’s farm to learn some basic life skills. Fathers are encouraged to also attend. All participants need to register NO LATER THAN November 5. A permission agreement is mandatory to attend. The bus will leave the church at 9:15 a.m. and return at 4:00 p.m.
