Center 1st United Methodist hosting 'Trunk or Treat' on Halloween night

Public invited to share Halloween treats

First United Methodist Church invites the public to be part of their annual Halloween Trunk-or-Treat on Saturday, Oct. 31, from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at 211 Porter Street, Center.

The free family-friendly event is open to the community and will include lots of fun activities, food, and trick-or-treating in our church parking lot.

The annual Trunk or Treat is happening on Halloween night this year, and WOW, are organizers super excited!

This event is an opportunity for you to your invite friends, family and people in the community to safely go trick or treating from car to car instead of door to door, and it’s just a down-right family-friendly fun event.

Expect to be wowed by creative decorated trunks, some friendly games and food. Will we have candy?

You bet we will have candy! Lots of individually wrapped candy for your little trunk-or-treaters will be

handed out in a safe and fun way from each complimentary trunk in a secure environment.

This year we have added a Best Decorated Trunk Competition! We invite our community to be part of this annual event by contacting Faythe Abraham, Director of Children and Youth Ministry (210) 487-0097 or the church office at (936) 598-2707 to reserve your spot in our parking lot. Registration is free, and the only requirements are bringing a big smile and plenty of wrapped candy! This competition will have a “People’s Choice Award” with two winners in the Best Decorated Trunk Competition: Best Adult and Best Youth (Under 17). The judging criteria will be based on (1) Creativity, (2) Attention to detail, (3) Theme, (4) Costume, and (5) Interaction with the Children. Since many of our trick or treaters will be young kiddos, we ask that participants not use scary items, like blood, bats, witches, spiders, monsters, or gore.

Be creative and most importantly have fun with your vehicle’s design – we are going to have an awesome time!
