From hippies to fairy princesses, Bethel Baptist Church’s Second Annual Trunk or Treat, held Wednesday, October 28, was major fun for everyone. Pastor Ken Hanks, along with his wife Leah and church members, decorated the trunks of vehicles and loaded them down with candy and all kinds of goodies, while children ran from car to truck to get their share.
“We just want the kids to have fun,” Pastor Hanks said. “And of course, we have fun too, dressing up and just enjoying the fellowship. We usually plan it about a month in advance, but sometimes have to go to plan B at the last minute, such as when the rain came Wednesday night and our wiener roast had to be postponed. But we definitely have fun.”
Hanks said everyone is always invited to Bethel’s activities and membership at the church is not a requirement.
“We invite everyone to our church and to our events,” he added. “Everyone is always welcome.”
Just like with Bethel’s upcoming building fundraiser at the Beacon Restaurant on November 14 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
“It’s a silent auction and spaghetti dinner to raise money for our building fund,” Hanks said. “God has richly blessed us as our congregation is growing and we need to add on to our fellowship hall. Spaghetti plates are $10 each or a donation and we have many items donated from individuals and businesses around town, such as furniture, oil changes for your car and autographed footballs that Rebel Rags have donated. And local singer, Chris Busby, will be performing. So, we invite everyone to join us for this fun and delicious good time.”
