This year we will be hosting a trunks only Trunk-or-Treat event, October 31 at 3PM. Trunk hosts decorate their trunk and pass out candy to the children who will come (most in costume). We need 8 more trunk hosts and 10-12 people who will welcome our honored guests, help them check in on their smart phones and direct them toward the trunk area. If you can assist with this, please email Andrew: andrew.irvin@fumcbakersfield.org. Also, we can use lots of candy! You may drop off candy donations at church any time during regular business hours.
