It’s Ivy Chapel UCC’s
Trunk or Treat/Halloween Party
Join us  Sunday, October 27, 4:00
In the Ivy Chapel Parking Lot

 What is Trunk or Treat?  A fun, safe, fellowship event to celebrate Halloween!

How it works:  Ivy Chapel UCC members who wish to provide treats for our young trick-or-treaters come to church and park in the parking lot.  We encourage everyone to dress in costume and to decorate your trunk or vehicle.  Adults stay by their cars, while the children trick or treat their way around the parking lot.

  Halloween activities in the pavilion, including a hot dog roast.

Pumpkin Decorating:  Bring your own little pumpkin –
we’ll provide the paint and stickers.

Bring a side dish to share if you’d like!

 Kids love candy at Halloween but you’re welcome to hand out other items, too -such as pencils, stickers, or even homemade goodies!!

While we’re enjoying our treats, let’s share with others.
Bring a jar of peanut butter or a few cans of food!

Or fill our cauldron with donations for Joint Neighborhood Ministries.

Those Ivy Chapel members providing candy/treats should arrive around 3:30 in the upper parking lot and park in designated spots around the outer edge of the lot.  Trick or treating begins at 4:00.

Send us an email to let us know you’re going – or if you have any questions.

Thanks to everyone who brought their furry (or shelled) friends to the 11th annual Blessing of the Animals at Ivy Chapel. We had a record turnout this year, despite the weather. And an extra-special thank you to everyone who made donations the Bi-State Pet Food Pantry. The food and funds will go a long way to helping struggling local families keep their pets in these tough economic times.

Unexpected guests invade picnic!

We invited local entertainer Serengeti Steve to our Spring picnic… and he brought along several of his pets, much to the delight of most at the picnic — and to the chagrin of the more skittish among us.

Thanks to Debbie Washburn for organizing the event, and for the whole crew of volunteers who made it a great event.
