Hanson UMC Presents “Halloween With A Christian Swing”Oct 22nd, 2013 | By Submitted | Category: Front Page
Approximately seven miles out of NE Colin Kelly Highway at Hanson, there’s one of those “little churches in the wildwood,” Hanson United Methodist Church, that’s planning a big night of good, clean Halloween fun for kids up to 18 years of age, and what a night they’re planning. The starting time will be 6 p.m. on Friday night, Oct. 25. The young people will grill their own hotdogs and s’mores over an open pit fire, surrounded by bales of hay. The ladies of the church will furnish loads of side dishes, desserts and drinks to go with the hotdogs. There will also be a hayride for those who wish to climb aboard! Have you ever eaten donuts on a string, not using your hands? Not easy – but a lot of fun. All kids will get the chance to try this feat in the Donut Eating Contest. Just one contest among many games planned for fun throughout the afternoon. A costume contest will be held among the kids in two categories: Handmade and Store Bought ones. Winners of all games will be awarded prizes. At the end of the afternoon and early night activities, cars will line up for the Trunk or Treat giveaway. To receive their bag of treats, kids have to repeat their favorite Bible verse in their group. The night not being over with for the older group, who will move into the fellowship hall of the church for the “Sleepover” the rest of the night. The younger children, ages five and under, are allowed to stay for the night only if one of their parents stays with them. A night of fun and contests will be enjoyed after participating in Bible study and prayer. Food will be available all night. Movies will be shown and two teams will be selected to participate in the puzzle contests of 500 pieces each. Kids can bring their DVD games to share after they have been screened by the adults in charge. Kids will be picked up after 10 a.m. Saturday morning, after having enjoyed a huge breakfast of Belgian waffles and sausage or bacon. Young people are very imported to the members of Hanson United Methodist Church and they are looking forward to your visit. Bring a buddy!
