Trunkless Triumph: Fall Fun Fest!
Last Sunday our Metro families and their friends were able to enjoy our 2nd annual Fall Fun Fest!
Originally planning to hold the event in the school parking lot, we were forced to move all the festivities indoors due to rain. Initially, we worried about how we would have a trunk-or-treat without actual car trunks, however, just like He always does - God showed up in a big way! As soon as the call was made to move the event inside, all of our ministries adapted and flexed their creative muscles and transformed the walls and tables of Grieco Elementary School’s cafeteria into 14 stations - all different, unique, and wonderfully creative!
Families came out to collect candy from the trunk-or-treat stations, pick a pumpkin from our pumpkin patch, play fun fall-themed games, get a tattoo, guess the weight of an oversized pumpkin, and see how being a Christian is almost like being a pumpkin. We even had a parade, led by a big panda, to show off all the creative costumes our kiddos were wearing. We were so thankful because the smiles on children’s faces made it clear that they were having a blast and that the Fall Fun Fest was indeed a blessing to our Metro families and their friends.
Next year, we hope that the Fall Fun Fest would be an even bigger and better event that would reach those in our community, including the families of the students at Grieco. We hope to have even more trunks, games, activities, and fun!
Please pray and hope with us and consider helping us out for our next Fun Fall Fest. We know it’s a whole year away but it’s never too early to dream!
