Today’s Bible Verse ~ 1 Peter 5:8-9

1Peter 5-8-9

 

 

Today’s Bible Verse

“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.” –1 Peter 5:8-9

Trunk or Treat This Evening!

trunk-or-treat

Trunk of Treat tonight from 6-7pm in Pender’s Pumpkin Patch.

What is Trunk or Treat?

Rather than going door to door, children go from car trunk to car trunk.

A trunk or treat is a very gentle and kind and child-friendly way celebrate Halloween.

Similar to tailgating at sporting events, the family-friendly “trunk or treating” events are being adopted by communities as well as churches, according to The Associated Press.

The festivities are from 6 pm through 7 pm in the Pumpkin Patch at Pender UMC.
