It's Almost Time for Trunk or Treat!

Costumed children, cars with trunks open, hot dogs and cookies, music, and Halloween crafts.  It’s almost time for Trunk or Treat! 

                            

For about ten years, we’ve invited our neighbors to join us in our lower parking lot on the Sunday before Halloween.  There’s always plenty of candy, but it’s not just about letting kids fill up their bags with goodies.  It’s about providing a safe place for children and their families.  It’s a time for families to enjoy watching their children have fun.  It’s a time for us to get to know our neighbors and our neighbors to get to know us.  It’s a time for us to talk to the families of our Kingdom Kids for more than a few minutes at pick up and drop off.  It’s a time for us to make clear that being a church is about more than getting together on Sunday morning for worship.  

                            

                                                


Church is about living life together.  It’s as we get to know each other as neighbors that we build up the trust that is needed to allow us to call each other friends. It’s friends who you go to when you need a hand or a word of encouragement.  It’s a friend who you want to share your joys and sorrows with. 

                          


Right now, there seems to be so much division between people.  Differences have not become something to celebrate, but rather something to divide us. Trunk or Treat is one of the many ways that we at Broadus want to build community and send the message that “All are welcome.”

It’s happening again this year on Sunday, October 27, 3:00-4:30 PM, and you’re invited to be part of the fun.  We’ll serve hot dogs, chips, cookies, and drinks at 4:00 PM.  If the weather isn’t good enough to be outside, then we’ll move everything indoors. 

So, rain or shine, Trunk or Treat will happen and we hope to see you there!

At Broadus Memorial Baptist Church we believe we are called to love God and love our neighbors. The stories you read on this blog offer a witness to the ways we respond to God's love and seek to share that love with others. 

Scripture describes the church as a body, made up of many parts. Just as your tiniest toe isn't aware of the intricate work your heart or brain do, it can sometimes happen that people in the church body only see what is happening immediately around them. Our hope is that reading these stories will help forge connection and inspire greater love and understanding for one another.

At Broadus we are a community defined by warm-hearted fellowship and thoughtful inquiry. We hope you see evidence of that in the stories we share here. We hope you know, or come to know, that you are a part of God's grand story and that you are welcome to join us, on a Sunday, a Wednesday, or any gathering in between. 

The life of faith is a journey, and we are not meant to walk it alone. Our stories connect us and we are excited to share some of ours with you. 

If you have a story you'd like to share or would like to connect in some other way you can send an email to bmbcmail@gmail.com or call (434) 977-7381.
