As a kid growing up we had a blast at Halloween. Nothing was ever thought of like “Satan’s birthday” or “witchery” or the such -like. It was a fun holiday where we got all the candy we could eat–which was enough to make us sick at times. Later on we pulled pranks on our youth minster at church or our friends at school.
Of all things I did during this time of year, no one in my family or around me would have ever thought that the church would provide trick or treaters a place to be on Wednesday night other than a Bible class. Well, that happened tonight at Creekside. We had our first ever “Trunk or Treat.” It’s not a new idea by any stretch, but it was a new event for us.
We started at 5:30PM with hot dogs and fixins and at 6:30 we began seeing the little children come through for candy. It was awesome. We had about 20 cars or so in our little parking lot and many of our people visited with people in the community and gave out candy to the kids. We had “church” in the parking lot by being family to one another and providing a service to our community. I pray that God uses it to His glory.
