Community Halloween Party

Last Year’s fun and frightening Halloween Party was a huge success. Your Christian Development committee is getting ready to organize this year’s Spooktacular on Saturday, October 19 fro 5:00 – 7:00 pm. There will be crafts, games, pumpkin carving and a Haunted Hallway. We need help with everything from distributing flyers, set-up Saturday morning, people to welcome gusts, overseeing a planned activity ( game or craft table) or serving pizza slices from the kitchen. We especially need people to help for 2 1/2 hours on Saturday. If you are willing to assist please contact Karen Forgrave or Rev Coral.
