We'll have games, inflatables, art, temporary tattoos, pictures, hot dog dinners, decorating contests, trick-or-treating, The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Builder Bunch's Lego robotics, and Zombie Laser Tag (for 3rd-5th grade only). Each Sunday School class is encouraged to choose a theme and use that theme to decorate a door on the second floor, where children will come by to trick-or-treat. The best door theme will be awarded breakfast for their Sunday School class. There is truly something for everyone! You are all invited! Save the date: Friday, October 24 from 6:30pm–8:30pm at Decatur First UMC.
