It's time to plan Trunk or Treat in Oak Forest. The date we have picked is Saturday Oct 26th starting at 6pm. We typically set up
decorated trunks and themed games an hour before the event starts. This event is a fun way to create community in Oak forest and have fun with the kids who come to our church every week. Also, be sure to come dressed up and bring your own kids!
- Volunteers to help set up games before the event - Church members to decorate their Trunks
- Candy Donations
